Advertising: Parody iPod from Microsoft

Someone made a video that shows what the iPod box would look like if Microsoft was marketing it. Having worked with MS this is so dead on it's funny as hell. I think I had these same conversation, check out this out.

This reminds me a lot of that hilarious VW "revision" Hal Riney wrote (and also drew) years ago. It started with the famous "Think Small" ad, and like this MS piece, gradually became a steaming pile of feces. After "Think Small," the next client revision was to change the head to "Think Large," and it just kept progressing (regressing?) I believe the end headline was something like, "Introducing the new 1965 Volkswagon Beetle, now with more sass and skidadle."

Interestingly the video's been taken down. Cease and desist from the lawyers perhaps?
