Microsoft Fires At Google: Gmail Man Parody Video Scathing, But Kind of Funny

If you saw this short Microsoft-promoted film already, apologies.

If you haven't, hang on. Microsoft showed The Gmail Man parody video awhile ago.. Basically, our hero is an email user getting robbed of personal information and showing almost no free will ROUGH!

For Microsoft, that is some guerrilla marketing for sure. But doesn't Microsoft data aggregate? This is the primary biz of search engines.

Send your thoughts and a photo or video and I'll run it. Are YOU concerned about a "Gmail Man?"  : ) Wow.Well, let it no longer be said that Microsoft doesn't take risks. It's time to Meet The Gmail Man.
