Microsoft’s (infamous) Vista SP1 video

By now you’ve probably already seen this leaked video from Microsoft, apparently an internal “motivating” video from the Vista sales department, about SP1.

Microsoft claims it’s actually a spoof, but I have a hard time believing it. I’ve seen my share of sales droids making complete fool of themselves in trying to be “cool”, embarrassing their audience to the point of physical discomfort. And for a spoof to be this long and so dull, it’s just not convincing at all.

At least when geeks behave in a ridiculous fashion, like when they go to a Sci-Fi convention wearing appalling costumes, they have the excuse of being out of touch with reality. That’s part of the definition. But sales people ? These ones are supposed to be very much in the real world, aren’t they ?

May be not so after all :-).
