Video: Microsoft’s latest ‘I’m a PC’ ad

Here it is:

(Update, 9:38 p.m.: Several people had a problem viewing the video, which was in Silverlight, Microsoft’s Web video format, which requires a download to view. I’ve replaced it with a version from YouTube. Thanks, Dave.)

(Update, Friday, 1:35 p.m.: I’ve restored the Silverlight version, below. I swapped it out with the YouTube version after people complained that they couldn’t view the commercial earlier, and didn’t want to download the Silverlight plug-in. Others have noted that you need a Flash plug-in to view video on YouTube. True, but most people already have it. My aim was to make it as easy as possible to view and comment on the ad. I should add that the Silverlight version is running much more smoothly right now.)
