Click it and I Note it: Microsoft's latest video ad for the Surface Pro 3 is excessively peculiar


Yesterday, we presented you a pick of some downright funny and entertaining smartphone commercials. Two Microsoft-made commercials found its way to the curated pick, but if we were to write today, Redmond would have been represented by the total of three video ads. Why? Well, it seems that Microsoft is very keen on bizarre and odd commercials, as its latest one for both the Surface Pro 3 and the OneNote app is downright peculiar and somewhat controversial.

See, it's actually a parody of one of 2011's number one singles, LMFAO's catchy “Sexy and I Know It”. Microsoft's take on the matter, however, is dubbed “Click it and I Note It”, as it's mostly centered upon the functionalities of the Surface Pro 3 and its Surface Pen. Then again, we found ourselves deeply immersed into the lyrics of the parody and we futilely tried to listen to it without laughing time after time.

Yes, it's funny and catchy, but will it make Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 look more rad? That's highly doubtful, but thankfully, the tablet is already selling faster than its predecessors. Be sure to check out the “Click it and I Note It” parody below and tell us what's your opinion about it!

That is the most awkward and uncool commercial I've ever seen.

It's not a commercial... It was made by the engineering team for fun.

LOL....Too many Macbooks at 0:46 ! Pretty cringe worthy ad tho.... Remember: Macbooks can run Windows but Windows can't run Mac OS

I'm not sure, that the most desired function, is ability to use Surface Pro as a piece of paper. It's a bit too expensive for piece of paper...

Ha, ha, funny! For me the click and note part however is not the selling point of Surf3. It's thse GAAAAAAMES!!! Now if you'll excuse me dear kinds, I'm going back to my Starcraft 2 on Surf3.

Exactly why I want a Surface Pro 3 is because it can run legacy programs. I can use it for coding too... damn when will I get one...

It's like they fire and hire new people to make their commercials every week.

IT IS NOT A COMMERCIAL. It is an internal video made by the engineering team for fun. CTFO.
