Windows/386 Promo

Posted by John Hoare on 23:49, 17/1/2007 | , , ,
 
Hey, we're not one of those sites that just posts YouTube videos, honest. We also post Google Video too.
 
So, if you've not seen it before, you have to watch this Windows/386 promo video. It may be your usual nonsense at the start... but wait until it gets to seven minutes in. I CAN'T STAND THE CONFUSION IN MY MIND.

"It has the same interface as the OS/2 presentation manager"

LAWSUIT!

I hope she got paid a lot of money for ruining a potential acting career.

Unfortunately, I've had to stop at about 8:00 due to important people wandering around the office.

I think the funniest thing about it is the guy from Accounts. By that time she's changed into her 'street' clothes in the office, and while she's changing back into her office gear he's mouthing "Wow" over a print out.

Get your priorities right, man!

And the guy from Microsoft looks like he going to screw her... how apt!

Did Windows ever say 'PRINTING!' in big flashing letters though? I though that only happened in the movies a la 'ACCESS DENIED' type thing.

Perhaps he was checking the value of those backdated stock options.
