    this ad has probably been floating for awhile but I just came across it and was curious what people thought about it, i.e. the meaning behind the giant, rabbit, tiny person, and what occurs.

    Man that the heck is that supposed to signify?

    I liked the video as it's own entity, but seriously, what does that have to do with zune?! :confused:

    The wierdo man is that fat crazy one from Microsoft, whatshisface?

    And the rabbit is their 'creation'.

    And they're grooming it, trying to temp the customer into their sick little word of old sweaty men, and stroking bunny rabbits! (or to buy a Zune, maybe)

    Who knows with Microsofts twisted logic!

    That ad freaked me out. Maybe that's the point? All I know is, there are a 1000 ways to read in to it, and most of them aren't good...

    MS haven't realised that the guys doing the ads in the PR agency they've hired are high.

    its quite odd I must admit. My first instinct I thought it showed a play on MS and Apple where the rabbit was the consumers but I couldn't figure who was Apple and who was MS. I could have argued it either way. anyway the lyrics to the song make it even weirder:

    They made a statue of us
    And it put it on a mountain top
    Now tourists come and stare at us
    Blow bubbles with their gum
    Take photographs for fun, for fun

    They'll name a city after us
    And later say it's all our fault
    Then they'll give us a talking to
    Then they'll give us a talking to
    Because they've got years of experience
    We're living in a den of thieves
    Rummaging for answers in the pages
    We're living in a den of thieves
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious

    We wear our scarves just like a noose
    But not 'cause we want eternal sleep
    And though our parts are slightly used
    New ones are slave labor you can keep

    We're living in a den of thieves
    Rummaging for answers in the pages
    We're living in a den of thieves
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious

    They made a statue of us
    They made a statue of us
    The tourists come and stare at us
    The sculptor's mama sends regards
    They made a statue of us
    They made a statue of us
    Our noses have begun to rust
    We're living in a den of thieves
    Rummaging for answers in the pages
    Were living in a den of thieves

    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
    And it's contagious
