Microsoft Pulls Series of 7 New iPhone Mocking Video Ads

Microsoft's Windows Phone team has posted 7 new online video ads on its YouTube page that mocks Apple. In fact, these look only Apple mocking videos instead of company's advertisements. “A fly on the wall in Cupertino?” is the main title of the series. First video has this name. Other 6 also have it as main title with subtitles like "A fly on the wall in Cupertino: Colours". The phone for everyone, polycarbonate, innovative materials, fingerprint reader and 8-megapixel camera are the subtitles of other 5 videos.  

But Microsoft has now taken down these videos by making these private. Public access of these videos is blocked. Tech giant has also issued this statement, “The video was intended to be a light-hearted poke at our friends from Cupertino. But it was off the mark, and we’ve decided to pull it down.”

These are poorly made videos in which Apple CEO Tim Cook's fictional character does not match in any way. In fact it looks more alike late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. First Video of 2 minutes duration shows fictional meetings of Tim with SVP of Design Jony Ive and another female worker. These meetings are supposed to be taken place at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Employees make fun of Apple's CEO decisions for new iPhone line-up platic body, color choices, gold option and more.  

CNet has posted the following mirror copy of video for those who missed it.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
