Microsoft's Sorry Over Cock-Themed PR Disaster

By Sam Gibbs on at

Microsoft showed us all how not to motivate the developer troops at its Azure platform party in Norway last week. It busted out a Microsoft developer song that included baffling references to hard drugs and the male member.

The Scooter-style song and alluring dance troop were rolled out as part of Microsoft's Norway Developer's Conference PR blitz to get people on-board with the Azure platform. To make matters worse, their choice lyrics went up on the big screen too, with "Micro and soft don't apply to my penis" and "CSS is my LSD" topping the hideous affair.

Microsoft's head of corporate communications apologised for the stunt on Twitter, probably just after he'd fired the person responsible for dragging his and Microsoft's name through the mud -- what on Earth were they thinking? [Geekwire via TechRadar]
