We’ve seen the Doritos iPad ad spoof, here’s a new spoof of the Apple iPad walkthrough video from Subaru that could be the next prototype for the Microsoft Windows Car.

Is this what happens when Microsoft employees try to make a car? Welcome to the so-so! The PC-beige Subaru Mediocrity sedan:

Review of the Microsoft Windows styled car?

“It’s not extraordinary.
It’s extra-ordinary.”

The mediocre car, in slightly different shade than the squirted brown Microsoft Zune, is perfect for the Fandroid and Microsheep.

    If it sounds and looks exactly like a Microsoft product, drives like a Microsoft product, and breaks down like a Microsoft product, then it probably is a Microsoft car!

    • On the real MS car:

      At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, “If GM had kept up with the technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.”

      In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating, “If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

      1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would slow down and become laggy after a few months of use.

      2. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull over to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue.

      For some reason you would simply accept this.

      4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

      5. Only one person at a time could use the car unless you bought “CarNT,” but then you would have to buy more seats.

      6. Macintosh would make a car that would be reliable, five times as fast, twice as easy to drive, and cheaper to own after maintenance costs — but some people would think it’s PR bullshat.

      7. The oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single “general protection fault” warning light.

      8. The airbag system would ask, “Are you sure?” before deploying.

      9. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the antenna.

      10. Car dealer would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally Road maps (now a subsidiary), even though they neither need nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the car’s performance to diminish by 50 percent or more. Moreover, GM would become a target for investigation by the Justice Department.

      11. Every time they introduced a new car, car buyers would have to learn to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

      12. You’d have to press the “start” button to turn the engine off.

      OP Editor note: we doubt GM issued such a press release. Also, some points are slightly modified.
