A history of bad MSFT advertising, dating back to Steve Ballmer doing…some…thing… about Windows. Is he trying to act cheesy on purpose or is he just cheesy and that's simply what happens?

When you consider the cheeeeeeeezetacularness of the recent Windows 7 Launch Parties videos and the cheezaliciousness of the promos for the unquestionably bitchin' Natal controller, you have to wonder why a company as smart as MSFT offloads their marketing to people who must have been recently hit in the heads with hammers.
