Whine, bi*ch and moan...
Maybe the reasoning behind this dance thing is to break up their day a little so they're not as on edge from staring at computers the whole day. I've been an IT professional for 16 years and even I know not to take my job to seriously. Computers aren't THAT important! Learn to enjoy life and dance a little, even if you geeks are to socially inept and insecure to dance with that "hottie" you see at the club. LIGHTEN UP!

How em-bare-assing. I don't understand why a large successful corporation like MS would stoop to something so stupid. Then there are the employees... MS must have given them a big bonus to make public spectacles of themselves. This proves one thing...many are prostitutes to money and will sacrifice their dignity for an extra buck.

MS should go back to conventional advertising, and abandon this cutesy-artsy-fartsy crap.

Not so bad as I expected and quite a few of them really seemed to be having fun. Having said that, it was still embarrassing.
The girl with the green shirt and the big, uh, "apples" is kinda cute though! :p

Considering how hard it is to find a decent job in the Scottsdale area these days, you'd do a lot to keep a job that will probably be ran at a loss if needed...

I still think they should have drug checks all around for this.

To quote Men Without Hats "We can dance if we want to". I understand Yoders point but their is a BIG difference between willingly dancing to break up a long day of work because you're given the oppertunity and forcing employees to dance wether they like it or not, and y the way some of the ones on the end looked they were forced.

I'd rather shop in a dancing Microsoft store than an emo-clad apple store any day! However I won't... because I don't like overpaying so I buy online

Yeah, because my super interesting job that allows me to work pantless from my couch is a complete nightmare.
