Anyone see this horror show? re: Qualcomm Keynote
I didn't watch it live, thank god, but I heard it was so bad that it was worth looking into.
Turns out it's worse than anything I could've imagined. Really. Bad acting, bad singing, cut off audio feeds, Steve Balmer, the prostitution of Big Bird and Desmond Tutu... This is Mel Brooks grade stuff, but it was meant to be serious. edit: the video is at the bottom of the page.

That is WELL beyond "wtf".

You know it's bad when the first cheer from the audience is for Steve Balmer running onto the stage.

My favorite tweet was by Topolski himself: »reality is just jumping the shark right now« :lol:

It's so bad you can't turn it off. In advertising terms, I guess it's a success?

"Imagine funny cat videos meets Gangnam Style... BOOM! Can you dig it?"

Yep. That about sums up this keynote.

That is like a train wreck hitting another train wreck.

Who is their target market? Retards?

It's like one of those B movies that is so bad that it's become a cult classic and is actually enjoyable to watch again.
Ω Jan 10, 2013 01:58 AM
Maybe they should get Alex Jones to do the next presentation to give it more "edge".
OreoCookie Jan 10, 2013 03:47 AM
Will they let him take the stage before or after Desmond Tutu?
Ω Jan 10, 2013 04:50 AM
Slightly before. Just enough to taste blood and then like a velorapter......

Think of the ratings.
