It what might be called one of the most ridiculous ads ever, Microsoft advertises the Surface Pro tablet with beatboxing in a corporate environment. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself:

What they're obviously trying to get at is that it is a cool device that can be used in the workplace. I'm just not sure that this advertisement gets that message across as clearly as they could have.

The ad is also very similar to the first Surface ad that depicted the Surface RT and how easy it was to attach a keyboard. That advertisement hasn't worked very well--seemingly, anyway--so it's not clear why they'd attempt the same type of ad again.

Enough of my thoughts on the ad. What do you think of it? Have a strange urge to go out and buy one now? Let us know in the comments!
