Grandmother vs. Microsoft: Watch This Poor Woman Try, Unsuccessfully, To Stop A Noisy Product Launch Party
An elderly woman simply wanted the performers at Thursday’s Microsoft Surface launch party in Beijing to stop being so loud. Apparently the noise was keeping her grandkids awake, according to Sina, and since this party was on a schoolday, they needed their sleep. Stop being so loud, she said. When no one would listen, she took things into her own hands.
MIC Gadget has a lot more pictures and videos of the event, but the above is the true gem. The grandmother wanders onto stage with her husband. They put their hands out, waving at the crowd, as if corporations were the type to have, you know, a heart. As if stage dancers might, in a pang of conscience, say, Hey — why are we doing this, being so rowdy?
Her efforts were rewarded with her getting the shepherd’s crook by way of security guards. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
