I know what a Launch Party is. This video advertisement for Windows 7 makes it all sound so creepy though. And who are the writers of this stuff? And the poor actors – they’re so rife with stereotypes that are trying not to be stereotypes that I can’t imagine how many takes it took to get some of those lines out.
The whole thing feels so terribly manufactured – could anyone possibly think it is a good ad? Which makes me wonder who they’re targetting for this. Which then makes me wonder if this is simply a viral marketing effort, a more sureptitious means of getting the word out than a simple ad.
Whatever the case, I won’t be holding or attending a Windows 7 Release Party. Sorry.
