I served as Production Assistant on this web commercial a couple years back. The spot was featured on Best Week Ever, made it into the New York Times, and NPR called it “brilliant and awful”. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
Here’s the original video on YouTube:

This is what “Best Week Ever” had to say.
What can I say about the Microsoft Songsmith Commercial? It speaks for itself, and if that’s not good enough for you then there’s plenty of people speaking about it. Yes, they’ve insulted our project, but they didn’t really insult my work. I spent most of my time carrying gear around and stocking the craft services table.
