The rise and fall of Microsoft's civilization: Caught on video

Microsoft has made one of the worst videos ever.

When Microsoft starts making videos like these, even as a spoof ( as CNET discovered ), its best years are clearly behind it. I have no great love for Microsoft, but I'm blushing with embarrassment for the company. Even spoofs should be better than this.

Wow. Make it go away!
