MGXFY12 Kurt D Comedy Video from Buttercuts Editorial on Vimeo.

While Microsoft may often come across as a monolithic corporation, it's sometimes good to remember that behind the company are individuals and personalities. So it's always nice to see them have a little fun, which is what you see above.

The video is taken from MGX FY12 and like Long Zheng who found this vid, while we don't know the context, we still find it funny nonetheless. The four unlucky carpoolers are Kurt DelBene (President of Office), Qi Lu (President of Online Services), Chris Capossela (Senior VP of consumer marketing) and Andrew Lees (President of Windows Phone) who we briefly spoke with in Barcelona. Yeah, that Andy Lees, which is what makes the Windows Phone comment that much more funny.

If you've ever attended a Microsoft conference/event, you'll know that they have a pretty good sense of humor, often demonstrated in video form.

This was no different from the Microsoft Global Exchange conference, held only last week. The video is meant to parody how Google's Gmail "rifles through your email", a not so subtle remark on Google's advertising business which shows targeted ads in your browser based on "keywords" in your email.

For those concerned with privacy, Google's whole ecosystem is ripe for criticism. If anything, this video should get folks talking a bit about such matters. At the very least, it's pretty freakin' funny.
