As far as internal corporate-sponsored parody videos, I would actually have expected a lot worse out of Microsoft than this three-minute takedown of Gmail. Nerd fight!

The crux of the video (reportedly shown July 20thduring Microsoft's annual global sales conference): people hate Gmail, because of Gmail's snooping and Gmail's poorly targeted ads and Gmail's male pattern baldness. How many of those things actually get people riled up these days, I'm so sure. But any Microsoft humor that doesn't make you cringe has to be considered a solid victory at this point, right? [ZDNet]
