That was pretty damn bad. I felt embarrassed and I wasn't even involved!

Would have been amusing if it were 20-30 seconds at most, but 4 freaking minutes of that cringe inducing train wreck? Wow.

Hi I'm a PC and I dance like an idiot!

Last time I saw this was at Johnny Rockets. They are struggling now, ever since they were bought by Redskins owner Dan Snyder. But what's the worst that can happen? ONE store goes under?

 

Maybe they should sell churros.

I was in a restaurant once where the entire wait staff stopped to do some stupid dance routine for a couple minutes. It was uncomfortable and obviously nobody got waited on while this happened. Lame there and lame for MS too.

Yep.....another Microshaft cringe moment.  Sort of reminds me of the Walmart cheer.  Cheesiness never works for a company.......oh....wait.

 

 

Check this video out for "spontaneous" song and dance

Hey, hey... whoa.... Let's not say things we can't take back.

Sure, it's bad, but it's not "wear-a-black-turtle-neck-with-stone-wash-jeans-and-sit-in-a-Starbucks-telling-everybody-how-great-you-are" bad...

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that watched nearly the whole video because of the girl in the green shirt.  Really is a lame video and makes me glad that I don't work/shop there but if that's their idea of fun then I don't have a problem with it.

This is not a microsoft commercial or a print ad or anything highly refined marketing effort. It's just some employees dancing in a store.  Lighten up everybody.

I gave it 5 stars just for the chick in the green shirt with the big rack.

One of the dancing employee's facial expression reads: "I wish I was dead..." 

Obviously this wasn't a Broadway style "Look how happy we are! Let's start dancing!"

totally agrees with the person before me - Microsoft has the WORST marketing team ever !  From the Jerry Sinefield lame / corny / pointless commercial to everything else. LAME + POINTLESS + CORNY advertisement and yet Microsoft think its COOL.

What does it take to save the face of Microsoft ?   Fire all your 70-year old fashion consultant / choreographer / advertisers. Whos in control of whats IN and OUT ?  Teenagers or even 20 something, definitely not old people. Come on, its just common sense !

Microsoft has the worst marketing firm ever.

It's like a train-wreck, it's awful, but I can't pry my eyes away.

I don't know who to be more embarrassed for, Microsoft or those poor employees.

No gay = no cool. That's the frikkin jungle rule.

If you follow the "Bad publicity is better then no publicity" motto, then this has worked. Look at how many people are talking about it.

 

But, I think it is a failed attempt to be "hip, cool, withit, insert favorite word here"

Oh well.
