To learn even more about party planning, you just must watch the video yourself. (At least watch the first minute or so, okay?) Direct link here.
To launch its new Windows 7, Microsoft has planned - you guessed it – the perfect party! Woo hoo! Who doesn’t love a party!
To help you plan YOUR VERY OWN Microsoft Windows 7 House Party, the clever people at Microsoft shot their own version of a party planning video! In Hosting Your Party, we learn: "Let's take a minute or so tell you about how great it is to host a launch party. You can use house party tools to build your guest list and upload your pictures... If you’re in your own home, you’ll be able to participate with others in this exciting event around the world."
You really should watch this video too (at least the first minute). Direct link here.
Have you watched the videos? Good! I have a few questions for you.
OMG! Is this brilliant or what? I'm a Mac user so I could care less about Windows 7. But now I know all about it and can talk it up like a pro. And damned if Microsoft didn't get me to write a blog post about Windows 7. Shoot. When people ask me "How do I get you to blog about my product?" I can just answer: "Copy Microsoft!"
So, I'm just wondering here... Is this Microsoft Windows 7 House Party thing real? Or is it an incredibly wonderful and clever spoof on a 50s educational video that is so well done as to have fooled most observers who seem to think it is legit?
Janice L. Brown The Fussy Marketer also has a question: “Hmm, if something goes viral because it's so bad, does that still count as achieving the marketing goals?” Good question Janice! What do you think?
And another thing: Why did Microsoft disable the comments and ratings on YouTube?
