Microsoft Puts Windows XP Users in Control
Published on .
The power to put idiots of every ilk in their place is finally in your hands—at least according to a pair of online spots created by McCann Worldgroup to promote Microsoft's new Windows XP Media Center Edition. Touting the greater control enjoyed by users of the new operating system, the spots feature such obnoxious characters as a cocky video gamer and a loud cell phone talker, both of whom receive their just desserts when someone in their immediate vicinity takes control with a magical remote. But that's not all—after pouring through the loads of extra footage for both spots, directing duo sausage decided to collect audio clips from the best outtakes in the form of an online "soundboard," allowing visitors to enjoy bite-sized nuggets of annoyance at their leisure.
