Microsoft Songsmith

This goes back a while, but I want to make sure it spreads as far and wide as possible. This is, I kid you not, an actual advertisement for an actual Microsoft product-- evidently an attempt to one-up Apple's Garage Band. Believe me, you owe it to yourself to watch this video.

There also appears to be a deleted scene that's been made into a separate video, wherein the barritsa from the longer ad sings about her dream of stardom, and how Songsmith can help her achieve it.

Naturally, some folks out there have put Songsmith to work using a capella tracks from the hits: I recommend We Will Rock You, White Wedding, Tom Sawyer, and The Ace of Spades.
