Microsoft have surpassed themselves, as only Microsoft can. I never thought my nomination of their Songsmith advert for worst video of 2009 could be beaten… unbelievably, they’ve proven me wrong!

The Windows 7 Launch House Party? At first I thought this was a parody, but no, it’s actually real! Just make sure your diary is full between 22-27 October, otherwise you could end up at a house party, with your IT department!?!?

I honestly didn’t think Microsoft was capable of creating an advert that was worse than their Tron Guy ad, but au contraire, they’ve managed it no problem… in fact, it’s safe to say that they’ve impressed me just how far they have pushed the limits of complete & utter tripe! Don’t worry Apple, you may have given your own music app a stupid name like Garage Band, but I think you can rest easy for a little longer
