Microsoft Re-Designs the iPod Package

I saw this video last month but I didn’t link to it then. I’m fixing that oversight right now, especially since the news came out this week that it was actually made by Microsoft.

This video shows what would happen if the Microsoft Marketing department got its hands on an iPod box, and redesigned it into an MS product. It’s basically three minutes full of stuffing as much branding, arrows, fine print, charts, and other crap as will fit on the box. But I can’t explain it well enough; just go check out the video.

And keep in mind that it was actually made by folks at Microsoft, poking fun at their own marketing efforts. Makes it so much better. I have a feeling these people have been through the process for real way too many times.
