Gates reprises ‘Last Day’ video

Microsoft is getting more mileage from the star-studded spoof video of Bill Gates’ “Last Day” at work, which debuted to big laughs at his Consumer Electronics Show keynote and has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on the Internet.

Gates paused his keynote at Microsoft’s SharePoint conference in Seattle this morning to show it again, with new footage and a cameo from billionaire buddy Warren Buffett, who gave Gates some work space in a Dairy Queen (I think it was a DQ) to hold a meeting on global health. (How tempting it must have been to set that scene in a Hooters.)

The global-health message was more prominent in “Bill’s Last Day Redux.” In an early scene of Gates working out with Matthew McConaughey, for example, the buff movie star is holding a heavy punching bag and urges Gates on with shouts of, “I am tuberculosis!” Gates finishes off with a head butt.

Still scored hearty laughs.
