There’s ads in the elevator in my building that always try to make jokes about the fact that you are in an elevator, as if you are gunna be like WHOA HOW DID THAT AD KNOW I WAS IN AN ELEVATOR!??!?
That’s the whole premise of every single elevator ad - it has to refer to an elevator. They get so hung up on referring to you being in an elevator that they forget to actually make sense or be funny.
The one I just read said “Unlike this elevator, Microsoft Cloud has no maximum load.”
Cos it has no maximum load, but the elevator has a maximum load.
And you are in an elevator.
Ohhhhh, at first I was like “What? I don’t get it…” but then I remembered I was in an elevator and literally couldn’t stop laughing and shitting myself simultaneously.
Dah, I just get so angry that someone actually got paid to come up with that… Paid by Microsoft, no less! I mean, it’s not even a joke. It’s not even a thing!
I don’t know when it happened, but every ad seems to require a pun or some kind of word play or at the very least something resembling humor. What happened to the good old days of just pointing out how good your product is?
It would make more sense if it just said “Microsoft Cloud has no maximum load. That’s pretty amazing, right? You should buy it for your company.”
First off, it starts to vibrate for no reason, except maybe to let you know that it has acknowledged the pressing of the power button. There is no other hint to this, as nothing appears to happen at all for the first 5 or 10 seconds.
The screen goes white for a few seconds, then the splash screen comes up saying HTC. Then this ridiculously loud jingle plays, and there is no way to make it not play. It’s louder than my phones ringtone on full, easily audible from anywhere in my office.
Then right under the HTC logo some text starts to appear – but because the phone is so freaking slow and horrible it appears all erratic and jolty, and takes like 12 seconds for the two most ironic words in the world to appear: Quietly Brilliant.
