Microsoft the Musical


Lights up on Bill Gates’ room as it might have been in 1969 The papers here reference Bill’s (in)famous ability to jump over an office chair from a standing position There’s a computer mouse in the corner A Hamilton-style entrance for the main character… “His name was Bill Gates!” “Ahaha… wait a second. I’m not Bill Gates.” “Well of course you aren’t Bill Gates!—yet. Bill Gates isn’t a kid anymore. These days? Bill Gates is… more of an *idea*.” the PC revolution is what Microsoft was built on A choreography reference to a series of Surface commercials directed by Jon M. Chu c. 2012 Ariana Grande coming up: cheesy PowerPoint star transition! We’re heading into Verse 2, the gaming verse! The music here references Halo… …one of the largest franchises of all time (70M copies) Forza Motorsport! (~20M copies sold) Minecraft! (~180M copies sold) Gravity doesn’t apply to most blocks in the game Adaptive Controller helps people game no matter their physical ability Xbox consoles are backwards-compatible The magic of Xbox live & voice chat: HoloLens is Microsoft’s augmented reality platform It lets you see holograms… and one of the most famous holograms ever: Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform Amazon, also in Seattle, has the only other major cloud computing product Choreography reference to “Singin’ in the Rain” here And a music reference to Toto’s “Africa” (“I bless the rains…”) coming up: One major breakthrough with quantum computing is the use of 3-state bits (qubits): Two more quantum phenomena: Quantum computers operate near absolute zero (−459.67 °F) Lots of advanced tech is kept under wraps Newer AI agents are going to CRUSH Clippy Former CEO Steve Ballmer is famous for his chant: “developers, Developers, DeVeLoPeRs, DEVELOPERS!!” How is it that everyone here does so much? Right? I don’t get it (Joking:) Maybe there’s something in the water. Hi there! May I please have a latte, but could you add an extra shot of whatever secret ingredient it is that makes people here so successful? One of the most profound lines in 2008 Cult Classic “Kung Fu Panda”… “There is no secret ingredient.” (the strength of the dragon warrior was in Jack Black the whole time) Everyone brings their own. One big problem in access to tech: Another big problem in access to tech: A musical theater classic: Kick line! Microsoft’s mission statement:

    If the data scientist thing doesn't work out, there's always a career directing broadway musicals for Liam McGregor.

  22. pehache2 says:

    Global corporations were already more powerful than many states. They have now their devotees who praise them as if they were praising their god. Creepy…

  23. Eric S. says:

    Pretty cool all the peeps at Microsoft did the music and dance. Nice work!

  24. Anthony L says:

    Impressive to see how musically talented these people are and it's not even the field they work in. Maybe next time you can include some of the non-tech people: janitors, security, maintenance, the people that go unnoticed but help keep the workplace running. 🙂

  25. Huzaifa Ibrahim says:

    This video is amazing. So mindfully created and yes the puns were awesome!

  28. Billy M. says:

    Well …..

  34. val42k says:

    "Windows was the bet on which this company was made." Unless one remembers MS-DOS before that, and MS-BASIC before that.

    Still running Windows Vista best looking windows ever

  41. Bao Art says:

    Exactly what Microsoft does, classic musicals, so the things they make use of outdated technology, and when other tech companies live in 2020, they're still coming to y2k.

    Type a comment with Surface Book, bored with the surface

    Excellent and funny.

  51. Turd Ferguson says:

    Can't wait for Microsoft the Musical 2 when the FTC breaks the company up

  52. Kevin Sproule says:

    I guess with all the money they are not paying the interns they can afford to pay for this production. Watching it was like watching a grade school play. It was painful and none of the cast are related to me. Are 90% of Microsoft employees female? Can't they use their creativity to come up with some new products? Excel and PowerPoint are 30 years old.

  53. marina pangeea says:

    Did Microsoft bought the rights for doing such productions f from former communist countries.

  54. Jaio says:

  60. Alsky says:

    I have a headache now

  61. Ursh anabi says:

    Its gives off a bit of a North Korea vibe. So I'm worried they'll be executed for the vista joke

  62. Austin Staunton says:

    This is amazing! Bravo team!
    Commercial Executive

    It says a lot that so many think this is laudable.

  69. PAUL Pierre says:


  70. Ricardo Daniel Berrospi Quispe says:

    feel in love

  71. Mr. Cold says:

    How about time Microsoft sent out that Windows 10 update payload in March 2015 that reeked havoc on Windows 7 operating systems.

    GWX.exe, I bet people who have windows 7 still have it on their PC's. Did Microsoft really get rid of everything when they sent the "patch". I doubt it. Check your folders.

  72. TheMaleWhiteMage says:

    I replied to val42k post but wanted this separate since it is on a different topic.
    Why is there a censored line in the credits? During the 'Thanks' section there is a blurred line that quickly disappears to black than comes back again just as it is scrolling off the screen. If someone was removed from the credits why wasn't the project file reedited?

  73. Zen Rhino says:


    Bill Gates is not an idea. He's a person. Stop trying to pretend like Bill Gates is the Batman and it's just a concept

    I want the Excel t-shirt.

  81. Sancho Srancho says:

    I hope none of actors were forced into this cringy video.

  82. Gokhan Ozhan says:

    This is ineradicable, really fun to watch. Congratulations folks!

  83. Joe Honest says:

    And I’m never using anything Microsoft again…

  84. Mikey Ross says:

    the future is dark.

  85. Matt Boyer says:

    What made you think this was a good idea?

  86. Nostalgic Millennial says:


  87. EditorialJoe says:

    Spending time on things like this is why windows search STILL doesn't work half as well as the search function on any Apple product.

  88. Dick Fino says:

    How many of these comments were bought?

  89. Donny Walbanger says:

    This is horrible

  90. Donny Walbanger says:

    The future is weak

    Baby boomers: So How does this help sell computers??..
    Gen Z & Millennials: Computers???

  92. Revolutionary Thinking says:

    Peter Yang. So is there a John Yang somewhere in there too. lol google Andrew Yang.

  93. buck Buckley says:

    I just want to know how your computers are better than your competitors and this answered none of my questions.
    Atleast talk about how Macs are overpriced pieces of shit and how for a 32 gig ram machine you can get for 600-1000$ cheaper with windows software than a Mac book air
    But that’s me doing my job for you

  94. Sit Nomine Digna says:


  95. S. Y. says:

    You're making the poor little interns do this? Oh, gosh, it mush be hard to be a Microsoft employee.

  96. Logan Venter says:

    Now if only they could sing…

  97. Vulcanoctus Al-Abass says:

    Sy "no" to corporate propaganda, reject mindless consumerism, embrace mindful custom instead!

    That's all for me.
