A series of ultra-quirky Windows 8 commercials that have never seen the light of day popped up on YouTube this week, and we guarantee you’ll be left wondering what in the world just unfolded before your eyes.
The videos were created to promote Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system, which launched in October 2012 worldwide. The multi-video ad campaign called “Training Camp” features a watermelon slashing to promote its touch-sensitive capabilities and a showdown of two men playing the piano while engaged in a heated game of ping pong (to emphasize its “work and play” philosophy).
Although this sounds all fine and dandy, the execution is just bizarre. But at the same time, there is something charming and delightful about these gems too. Give them a watch to see for yourself.
There’s no indication they were ever released to the public before now. According to The Verge, the videos surfaced on Microsoft’s general YouTube channel as an error.
