My friends and I (who are Mac fanatics) have a friend called Luke who is an absolute Microsoft fanatic and whom we often spend an evening down the pub winding him up about the whole Microsoft/Apple thing. Its always great fun, as he seldom wins, yet always refuses to accept that Apple rock.
Anyway, my friends are very musical, and a while back Luke asked if they could write him a little ditty - a theme tune as it were. So we sat down last week and wrote a song for our friend Luke and his love of Microsoft, and we're really chuffed with it - we even have a music video!
Anyway, thought you guys might like it - as it has an Apple versus Microsoft theme to it, and is pretty darn good if I don't say so myself!
You can download it, and read the story behind it at our websites as follows:

Please enjoy - and be sure to pass it on to your friends!!!

PS Comments would be very welcome :D

Maybe its just my sound setup but the sound on the flash video is so muffled that I can't hear a thing! :confused:
Hmm I am confused by this one - try the wmv, or listen to the mp3 - the mp3 is both longer and better quality!

Well done... my only comment is this: You posted the video in Windows Media Format? :eek:
It's available in wmv format because Microsoft Luke himself loves the video and song so much that he converted it for his microsoft friends - and I haven't had time yet to convert to quicktime.....it is in flash format though!!!

i liked it, but please edit the flash movie, the sound quality is horrible and you can hardly understand the words

Great job!

Sorry - I literally taught myself a bit of flash just to make the movie - I have never used flash before!!!
Hopefully you downloaded the mp3, as the sound quality is much much better!

I figured that was the case... still kind of ironic. ;)

*thanks Heaven that this thread isn't about another product like Microsoft Bob or a new replacement for the evil paperclip....*
Lol, I'd forgotten about Microsoft Bob! Be rest assured though that Luke is actually a real person and not actually a Microsoft product!!!
