Microsoft hits a wrong note with Songsmith video

Microsoft's Songsmith software gets the bizarro-world treatment in this gem of an advertisement.

When Matt Asay wrote that earlier today that he really liked Microsoft's new advertising campaign, I don't think he was talking about this surreal Children of the Corn-esque video that was just released for Microsoft's new Songsmith software.

Songsmith generates musical accompaniment to match a singer's voice. "Just choose a musical style, sing into your PC's microphone, and Songsmith will create backing music for you. Then share your songs with your friends and family, post your songs online, or create your own music videos."

Word on the street is that this is real and not a parody.
