Fun spoof vid from Microsoft execs

A spoof video from some high-level Microsoft execs, reportedly from MGX FY 12 – this year’s iteration of the annual conference for Microsoft employees – has been making the online rounds.

This video, apparently an alternate version of the one shown as MGX FY12, features Kurt DelBene, President of Office; Andrew Lees, President of Windows Phone; Qi Lu, President of Online Services; and Chris Capossela – Senior Vice President of Consumer Channels and Central Marketing.

Watch them dish “Desperate Housewives,” holler “no iPhone!” and bask in the joy of “passing Google.”

The MGX FY 12 is also the conference from which this Microsoft “GMail Man” video, spoofing Google and touting Office 365, apparently emerged:
