Apparently Microsoft is set to spend $500 million in marketing to promote the upcoming Windows Phone 7, but if this parade is any indication of how they’re going to spend it, you have to wonder where the money is going. The above picture is a great example of how little they spent on this event. It looks like everyone was asked to put together their own costume, which meant most people just grabbed a couple of kooky wigs or something around the house. They also couldn’t take the time to even make a decent banner, opting for some gravestone clipart, ugly font, tacky colors, and to top it all off, it’s duct taped to the U-Haul rental.
Who organized this event? An elementary school?
Also, try to watch this Thriller rendition without cringing.
