Who says MS doesn't have a sense of humor?

I love it when someone can poke a little fun at themselves. One of the best aspects of some recent "Mormon" movies is that there are many aspects of Mormon culture that they don't take seriously. Films such as "The RM", "Singles Ward", and "The Home Teachers" have me rolling on the floor as they poke fun at very true aspects of life in Mormonia. Likewise, it appears that certain groups at Microsoft don't take themselves too seriously. One of the aspects that helps to build the mystique of Apple products is their packaging. Just look at the box for any piece of Apple hardware and you will see a minimal, classy package that glamorously presents what is inside, with nothing else. Particularly the ultra-sexy iPods. But what if Microsoft made the package for the iPod? The answer is hilarious. According to The iPod Observer, it has been confirmed that this video was made by Microsoft themselves. That just cracks me up.

  1. I like this, even though I am a hardcore MS fan! I'm gonna have a look at my software boxes tonight.
