New Office 365 TV commercial seems to be against workplace remote copter fun
Microsoft is turning its attention to Office 365 in a new TV commercial that centers on a workspace that has a rather interesting way of sharing secure files.
The ad shows office workers piloting a remote copter with a USB flash drive dangling on its bottom. Yes, this commercial has the conceit that using a remote helicopter to move a flash drive between cubicles is an efficient way to transfer sensitive content. It's fun, but definitely not the best option.
The co-workers continue this rather odd behavior until their boss comes in and says they should use Office 365 to transfer secure files via the cloud. Well, of course they should do that, but taking away their helicopter has to hurt a little bit.
What did you think of this rather silly TV ad for Office 365? Did it make you want to sign up?

I used to say that about music and movie subscriptions. Now I'm a subscriber to Netflix and XBox Music and never "buy" or own music, movies or TV shows.
