By now, you have have seen the video that portrays non-geeks preparing to host a Windows 7 Launch Party.
How does the promotion rate:
Awkward: most definitely.
Hilarious: yes, in a scary way
Plausible: not so much.
Score another win for the marketing department!
The idea of the average John or Jane Doe hosting a party for an operating system launch sounds silly to me.
Almost as silly as a movie from the 90s. Hey wait a minute!
Maybe Kid ‘n Play will come out of retirement to sing at your local launch party.
