Microsoft dude can work through anything

Especially since Apple ads tend to be so much better, it’s easy to knock any advertising from Microsoft. Now that we’ve given you the sorry context, this effort for Windows Mobile, with the theme “Work, wherever” is surprisingly entertaining. It features an executive who proves he can work through anything, anywhere—in an elevator filled with snakes (hey, where did they get that idea?), encased in orange gelatin, duct-taped to a lamppost. There’s even a distract-o-matic in which you can throw different challenges at him. All in all, the campaign is a decent Friday time-waster.
