Ballmer goes nuts for iPod satire animation

Stephen Nipper, of Necessity's Progeny patent blog fame, points out this flash animation with an iPod ad look. That really is Steve Ballmer sounding like Howard Dean at an Apple company conference. Scary stuff.

This flash animation is a satire, since it uses the iPod ad look to make fun of a person who was not involved with the creation of the iPod or the ads. If the animation targeted the Apple CEO or the iPod itself or something related to the iPod it may have been a parody.

Finally, I'd just like to say: Mr. Ballmer, chill out man, for one you're going to give yourself a coronary and two, no company is that exciting (ok, maybe one that you're making millions from is pretty exciting, but still, calm down before you hurt yourself).

Thanks for the tip Stephen Nipper.

That really is Steve Ballmer at some MSFT event, making Howard Dean look like he's been sedated: http://www.ntk.net/media/dancemonkeyboy.mpg

Yeah, I was going to say, I don't think that was at the Apple company conference :)
