Default Microsoft Debuts Facepalm Season!

These are honest to god real adverts Microsoft paid lots of real money for.

If you're feeling really freaked out right now, relax. I have the perfect fix. I dug this up from 2005.

Feeling better?


Honestly, I kinda wanted Kinect to succeed in spite of my dislike for it, but with ad compaigns like this MS seem intent on making evil cynical Drac the next leader of the free world.

Trying to figure our what scares me more?

1) How stupid I would look bouncing around in front of my TV if I ever used this peripheral?
2) Kinect may be so expensive the poor girl in video two had to hock her shoelaces so the family could buy it.
3) How everyone grins at each other in that creepy "forced" style while using or communicating with Kinect.
4) The dude wearing the pink poodle outfit in video three.
5) Making evil cynical Drac the next leader of the free world. (Implying that it will no longer be the "Free world"? )

Thanks for sharing all that Drac ... gave me a good laugh!

Please don't make me the first against the wall when you take power your Holy Ruthlessness! +1

I want one

If at first you don't succeed, look in the trash for the instructions.

Ewww, looks sluggish and cumbersome.
Count me out of the bleeding edge on this one, I think it will be really good in a few years time but until it starts replacing the remote in new TV's I'll just step back and allow it time to mature.
To err is human, to arr is pirate.
