Microsoft’s new promotional video for the upcoming Windows Marketplace reeks of overproduced, boardroom inspired, convention style advertising. Here are some of the more humorous tidbits from the video:
“Browse through a myriad of options, and check their ratings with a 5 star system” - Wow, a 5 star system?!
“Purchase the application and it downloads to your Windows phone” – Awesome, but will it work on my particular phone?
“Downloaded apps are guaranteed to run on your Windows phone model” – The commercial read my mind!
Also, starting at 1:17 in the clip, notice how the video pans out for well over 10 seconds. What the hell is up with that?!
