+ - Microsoft Orders Takedown of Office Training Film

Submitted by akahige
akahige (622549) writes "Microsoft has ordered YouTube to remove a pair of faux training videos produced by, and starring, Ricky Gervais, the creator and star of The Office. Appearing at the British offices of Microsoft as Office boss, David Brent (now acting as a consultant), Gervais offers such pearls as "I don't think Bill Gates made his fortune by spending time in meetings with idiots. I bet no one watching this has ever spoken to him. It would be easier to talk to Osama bin Laden." and "Don't stick up for him just because he's the boss." According to the article: "Gervais and Stephen Merchant... agreed to make the films in 2003... on the condition that they were never made public. ... The idea was to show 'how not to do it'." Google Video has them here and here, and you can download them by plugging the links in here."
