Microsoft takes off with giant-water-slide ad

The category of obviously-fake-but-funny-anyway stunt videos has another proud member in this Microsoft clip from Germany, showing a dude catching major air while launching himself down a water slide and off a big ramp. The people pouring the water down the slide at the beginning are a nice touch. In the more specific category of fake-ramp humor, it joins this BMW video, also from Germany, in which some guys build a giant ramp to literally launch a new vehicle over to the U.S. Via Adrants.
