Microsoft Certification Makes Prison Sentence Irrelevant

microsoft_certification.jpg

We've all been interviewed by brainless buffoons. We've all had to divulge hidden secrets during interviews. We've never, though, watched such a great combination of the two in the name of promoting Microsoft's Office Certification program. This, courtesy of the agency with the wacky name: Wexley School for Girls.

I'm a little confused. Did Microsoft actually pay for this? Is this a spoof?

If it's not an actual Microsoft-paid-for ad then it's just another video clip poking fun at Microsoft.

I want the part of me that just died - alive again. Why prison time? why was it called a meeting?

I shared this with my HR Dept and they laughed and then forwarded it to the entire company (in complete violation of the e-mail policy).

I think getting hung up on the minutia of "Why prison time? why was it called a meeting?" is sad. Overcoming the stigma of prison because you have an MOS certification speaks volumes. And, in case you missed it, it's funny.

Spoof or not, I say good work!
