Microsoft wants you to host a Windows 7 launch party

I’m not sure about you guys, but I don’t think this is such a good idea… I mean, it sounds like Microsoft wants you to host a tupperware meeting, or something. This might be the absolute worse video the company ever produced, even worse than the Songsmith promotional clip they released a while ago. What do you guys think? Check out the video below and let us know in the comments.

  1. The only redeeming quality of this vid is the fun one can have watching the clock on the stove jump from 3:50 to 3:52.. to 4:00.. to 4:20 within the span of 6 minutes.

  2. I have to agree… this is by far the worst I've seen from these guys. And you just gotta love the horribly processed added voice-in at 1:01.

    I'm not Windows user, but I have to give credit for what they have done. This is definitely not one of them.

  3. Wow, good catches guys.

    I'm also slightly intrigued by their choice of characters, obviously picked to appeal to certain demographics.

    Still, this sounds like it would be the most boring party ever.

  4. OMG, I cannot believe this. I couldn't watch longer than about 2 minutes. I just want to go out and get a "Windows 7" tattoo . . . on my forehead. Maybe Apple could pull this off, but not Windows.

    Of course, any excuse to have a drink is worth looking into and they specifically mentioned having a drink . . . Maybe I will do this after all, but no computers, just drinks. I think my house has 7 windows so I have everything I need. Drinks and windows.

  5. I think the video is pretty silly. On the other hand, I like the idea about the 'party'. I have friends still haven't worked on a Windows 7 computer. A good computer will run Vista at an equivalent speed of 7 just without the new interface. I have an old laptop that runs Win7RC and a desktop. The laptop was fine on XP but it works speedily with 7. The XP desktop machine was slow and pathetic but once 7 was on it, it was faster. So there is a difference. I don't believe for a second though that Windows 7 is alone enough to buy Windows.

    I suppose I can end this comment by saying that I will probably be hosting a party.

  6. You must like Windows 7.

    You must buy Windows 7.

    You must tell your friends about Windows 7.

    You must buy many, many licenses of Windows 7.

    These are not the droids you're looking for.

    Honestly… now I've seen everything.
