The iPod Observer reports: "Microsoft spokesman Tom Pilla on Tuesday confirmed with iPod Observer that his company initiated the creation of the iPod packaging parody video."
I mentioned this video last month. If you haven't seen it yet (or if you just want a fresh laugh), you can watch it now on Google Video. (The YouTube version has been removed.)
If this is true, let it never be said that the Micro-softies have no sense of humor.
(Thanks for the tip, Jones.)
