They took out the kid's chest, but they left in all the under-agers with red plastic beer cups. Apparently underage drinking isn't as dangerous as taking sexy pictures?

Yeah this commercial does seem awful liberal. It advertises that you get the Microsoft Kin and then go out and do whatever the heck you want just don't get caught. Defying a good upbringing at its best.

In microsoft's defense this could be in europe where the drinking age is 14 or younger in most countries... the song is incredibly odd and the clothing is lacking in fashion.

I remember in history that America used to be known for being thick-skinned and hard working. Now we're a bunch of thin-skinned lazy people who go cry to lawmakers everytime we're offended. Only in a America!

And at making phones apparently. Did anyone else notice the sheer ugliness of all of those phones???

they dont make the commercial advertising companies do and those phones are intended for younger people not geeks like most of us but what i think is that if those phones had a bigger app store catolog i would bet they would do very well.

It is not the first time that Microsoft tries to deliver a humorous commercial like Apple or Google but fails miserably.
