But in this video, they chose to do a parody of a 1980s TV show that most folks probably don't remember, or if they do, the parody was old about 15 years ago. Witness the "Googlighting" video (hint for the 20-somethings: They're mocking 'Moonlighting', which starred Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd, and ran from 1985-1989).
How do I know that this is dated? I asked a 20-something co-worker if he had ever seen the TV show that Bruce Willis had done and he said, "Bruce Willis did a TV show?"
I won't even mention the irony of Microsoft posting this on the Google-owned YouTube. Or tell my co-worker that Bruce Willis also had hair.
