Home Business IT Business Telecommunications Raunchy dance at Microsoft Azure presentation

When it comes to presenting significant updates to any platform, Microsoft is streets ahead of the rest. That much can be said without any hesitation.

And how can one be dead sure of that? Try to top this one.

Last week, at its Norwegian Developers Conference, a techno-dance preceded the announced of significant updates to the Windows Azure Cloud technology.

The dance included several drug references and one classic line that must have taken a lot of time to write: "The words Micro and Soft don't apply to my penis."

But then, acutely aware of the fact that there could be accusations of sexism with these lyrics, the words "Or vagina" were added below on a monitor that displayed the lyrics as they were sung.

An official comment on two videos of the dance on YouTube read: "This week’s Norwegian Developer’s (sic) Conference included a skit that involved inappropriate and offensive elements and vulgar language. We apologize (sic) to our customers and our partners and are actively looking into the matter."
