In the comments to this post, PlanetaryGear mentioned the "Bill Gates' Last Day at Microsoft" video:
And yes, it's amusing. Yes, the celebrity cameos were good and often inspired. The self-deprecating humor, painting Bill as a clueless, out-of-touch, aimless guy that everyone just sort of humors out of a weird combination of pity and fear, consistently delivers as expected. But... I just can't shake the feeling that this video, like just about every single other thing of note that Microsoft has ever done, owes its inspiration to something that came before:
I mean... seriously.
UPDATE: I don't know what the problem with the embedded videos is all of a sudden, but the first one is here and the second is here.
UPDATE: And now they're back. I guess YouTube's inner child had a bit of a cold last night.
