Windows 7 Party

Good news! Microsoft recently released some very helpful tips for hosting your own Windows 7 party!

Can I just stop here, and can we be honest with each other? Does this kind of acting resonate with anybody? (As Steve noted, it's totally Shovin' Buddies! ) Are there people who can relate to — let alone enjoy — this video? And has there even been a more vibrant and tangible demonstration of the difference between Apple and Microsoft? Anyway.

Turns out, though, it's a lot more fun when you imagine these guys are helping you plan a... slightly different party.

(I apologize for this childishness. It's mostly this guy's fault.)

Next Time: Kashiwa Mystery Cafe. Seriously. I'm even done writing it!


Microsoft has no clue whatsoever.

Does anyone else think that this was a bit more deliberate on MSFT's part than we give them credit for? I'd wager the original was released with the intent of remixes such as this one coming out.

It's laced with a lot of innuendo (e.g. the sentence "There are bonus activities you want to go deeper into it and you have to have the equipment to do that"). And there's so much ambiguity about these 'activities' and none of them are actually named. As everyone can tell, there's something totally off about their whole conversation.

It's just as if the video's script was written perfectly so you could remix it to the fullest.
Blogger Paul Irish 9/23/2009 1:32 PM  
@Paul Irish - you are giving MSFT wayyy too much credit. If this were just one video, it would be one thing, but there's an entire SERIES of them, all made to the same craptastic standards as the original.

I have to agree with Anonymous there Paul, there are just too many obnoxious M$ adverts out there. But admittedly, there is a lot of innuendo in there so it is hard to speculate after having seen the beeped version first.

Whatever the case, the bottom line is that M$ are spending a crap load of money making terrible adverts that create negative associations. I hope they keep up the good work!

The idea that Microsoft does this intentionally is absurd excusifying. Get a grip. Did they shelve Windows 2004 just to play with Apple's mind? Did they sell 1 copy of Vista for every 5 XP users as a sneak attack? Cabel is a Mac developer, he should be getting wooed over to Microsoft by their products, not making fun of their marketing.

Microsoft has been making cringeable videos since at least the 80's, before viral video. The reason they get out the door so awful is the same as with their other products: their internal processes are so bad that it is impossible to do quality work. People go to work there intending to fix it and leave a year later disappointed that they weren't able to get anything done.

Well of course they made it on purpose. They're probably incapable of doing otherwise. :)

In 2007, during an interview with the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, Bill Gates said he wished he had Steve Jobs' taste — more than a decade earlier, Jobs had declared that Microsoft just didn't have any taste. It's lacking from Microsoft's corporate DNA. That's why they're trying to buy "taste" by copying Apple's retail stores and then hiring away Apple Store managers and staff.

Need more proof that Microsoft lacks taste? This Windows 7 launch party video, as well as the other, earlier videos linked to by several commenters.

Many of you bitch and snipe about MS and this ad (clearly, to a few, at least, marketing genius, btw) and the Stepford sense of belonging it depicts ... and then, in contrast, pridefully define yourselves with pledged allegiance to the Apple tribe, or at least the anti-MS tribe. Either way, you are holding the intended dialogue that their marketing departments want; these corporations have you in their thrall, piercing your very sense of identity, and colonising your consciousness in these precious, auditable years. These corporations make tools, that's all, and often, in doing so, make tools of us all.

I hope realisation of all this comes sooner than the death bed, when the mind (the soul?) in an agonising bolt of illumination, sees all those lost opportunities, wasted life, when we allowed ourselves to be diverted from our relationships, from meaning, and love.

To quote the lyrics from a previous MS ad (as already referenced by another commenter, above), which ran under their slogan "Where do you want to go today?" ...

"When the damned are confounded, and consigned to sharp flames."

Thank you, I had my first good laugh for the day; especially after I viewed the "Shoving Buddies" video clip. I don't know why Microsoft even bothers. This is so lame, a Windows7 party, give me a break. I guess if you just want to have a party, but frankly, even if I just wanted to have a party, I would have a how lame can Microsoft get party. I cringe when I see those Apple commercials because they are so good. The only decent comeback from Microsoft has been the commercials where we see how much lower in price a PC is. But even so, it doesn't really matter because Apple has a long way to chip away at what Microsoft has built. I say the only hope is opensource (is that one word or two? I'm never quite sure.)

Again thanks for the laugh.

These videos are hosted at, but they're created for Microsoft. The company has organized similar events, like an "Xbox for Women" home party event to flog game consoles outside the typical basement nerd set. HouseParty organizes corporate "tupperware party" events for lots of groups, from Barbie to chocolate brands. Using it for Windows 7 is just Microsoft desperately scraping the barrel.

Yeah, there is an OBVIOUS potential for sexual innuendo in this video, I was very aware of it watching it the first time around without the bleeps. This is a stunt by Microsoft to make a viral video without labelling it as such (which doesn't work). A clever and new (as far as I know) marketing tactic, and a crystal clear demonstration of how patronising and manipulative Microsoft are to the demographic they advertise to. Makes me a little sick to be honest, when I think of how Microsoft intended to manipulate their customers to get more attention with this video. Ew.

Well, speaking frankly it looks to me like it's doing what it was intended to do, make people aware of the Windows 7 launch and getting exposure - and given that W7 word of mouth has thus far been generally 'it's better than Vista' it will likely work. Whether it was intentionally bad or just the run of the mill corporate marketing vomit is of no consequence at this point. No one with any sense at all is going to use or recommend an OS based on whether or not a 'promotional party video' was Oscar winning material anyway.

When I saw the original it made me sick to my stomach, as I believe the actors felt ill as well.

In either case I would probably try to drink all the booze in the house before slashing my wrists with shards of the cracked install cds.

Having shown this to friends at work for days now, we've pretty much come to the conclusion that Microsoft had no intention of using this as viral material, and that they really are this lame. Here's why: Beeping out the nouns of your daily conversations will turn any work or play-oriented task discussions into dirty innuendo surprisingly fast. "Hey Rob, don't forget to stick your *BEEP* in the *BEEP* before noon." The ease of conversion leads me to easily assess that there's no way Microsoft could have deliberately structured it this way -- everyday life already is.

MS doesn't really have any motivation to do clever or creative marketing. They already dominate the market. So my guess is they take the first semi-reasonable attempt at an ad and run with it. That way they don't spend too much time or money while trying to do advertising.

But I completely agree that the video is incredibly unpleasant and the concept of a Windows 7 release party with your friends is remarkably lame. I'd like to see a parody done with stoners and cokeheads or ex-Amway reps.

Sneaky smart? Smells like sour grapes and a whole lot of limp thinking. We're working way to hard to justify that they made a horrible product, for whatever reason. And, regardless of mixes, remixes, or hoping to get our attention later, as a consumer my first association with MS will be "horrible product" - no matter how many levels of re-write we now wonder they might have in mind. And, if I'm the kind of person who buys "horrible product" marketing, then I'm the kind of person who doesn't think I deserve the best, and if that's the case, take the low-level niche market out to the pastures where they can enjoy a bland, unrelenting mediocrity, because I'll take all the clean air and consistent competency I can get. -- Next time, at the very least, hire actors. Real ones.

I could see this being somewhat successful for MS. Peer endorsement is the most powerful form of advertisement. If you end up convincing half of your 10 friends at the "party" to get Windows 7, then I would say MS's one free copy to you was worth it.Problem is convincing 10 of your friends to go to a Windows 7 party...
