If You Were at the Company Meeting, This Video is Amusing

Watch this video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-AbGaKdCbs.

It looks familiar, right? Magneta Lane playing their cover of "Girl from Mars", same cubicle, same vomit green sweater, same pizza place, same girl behind the counter...but wait! Something is just a little different...

I do like this video and the other version. Sure there might be nobody who is actually going to live that lifestyle, but it still is an appealing vision and does a great job of branding...whatever it's branding this year.

That's a great video, it tries to position Microsoft as an aspirational brand similar to Apple. Sure, nobody actually lives that life but if I were in my late-teens/early-20s the beautiful friends/beautiful apartment/music/city counter culture stuff would totally appeal to me.
