Microsoft's latest History of the Internet promotion is a pretty lame, VH1esque mashup of various b-list comedians cracking jokes—until those comedians talk about Internet Explorer 8's new In Private Mode.

In this short excerpt, Microsoft endorses their product with a firm nudge and a wink. I mean, Steve Ballmer didn't go so far as to drop trou on screen, but kudos to the company for not being total prudes about what their software is clearly designed to facilitate.

Just keep those innocent little girls on a different set than your pervy comedians, Microsoft. Seriously, I don't even want to see them at the same lunch table. [Microsoft via Crunchgear]
