Humorous unboxing video pokes fun at Microsoft and the Surface

It’s never fun to take things too seriously, which is why we like this video of a purported Surface unboxing. Performed with a mock Russian accent, the video takes a jab at the “old” Microsoft (or rather what some people still perceive as being Redmond’s problem: clunky, non-working software and hardware).

We won’t say too much more on this because it speaks for itself. But we definitely got a chuckle out of it.

Humorous unboxing video pokes fun at Microsoft and the Surface


holy crap. Revolutionary, wow. It's thinner then the ad's show. And that box, I'm def gonna keep it. Friday/Thursday can't come quick enough. <3

man, they didn't even offer me the extra battery pack OR the sd card with the free pictures!
i feel ripped off!

That was pretty hilarious. Especially that part with the metrosexual interface. Can we all agree to adopt that as the new name?

+1 it was first thing I thought of when "metro" was announced. Calling something "metro" was already in common usage i.e. "That's so metro" to say that it's metrosexual.

Actually, I'm kind of offended.. Lol! I know it's just a joke, but the nerve of somebody making fun of such a great product.. No, no.. Screw that! Lol.

The russian text on the front in the smaller letters say "stupid americans will buy anything". I couldn't figure out what the words in the larger letter or on the back say. My russian is pretty rusty.

Looks like a "well made" Soviet automobile. When the cold war ended the Soviet cars created nightmares for Volkswagens capable of 160 mph. I remember suddenly running up a Russian Traubi going 55 mph and almost crapping my pants trying to avoid them.

This must be the Russian version of the Surface. LMAO @ Moscow!

This is actually a real unboxing of the Russian version.  Just don't tell them it is any different over here.

I think the Russians are the one's who should be embarrassed. What electronic device have they ever sold world wide?

KGB listening bugs and cold war nukes is about it =)

Y'all need to lighten up!  That video was worth several good chuckles.  Too over the top to take as real criticism of Microsoft.  Plus, I don't think they will get away with bundling a machine gun magazine in the US version ;-).

In the very first frame, there is a photo of two camels and something is written in an Indian language. Its written in Gujarati and the words written mean 'Camel Rape' :D

Yep, sums up rather nicely the Microsoft we've loved to hate in the past. :-D Looks like the perfect reminder of how great the future looks now!
