Microsoft’s Matrix Spoof (from Bill Gates Keynote at Comdex 2003)

At Comdex 2003, during Bill Gates keynote address included a parody film of The Matrix starring Steve Ballmer as “Steve-o” and Bill Gates as a Morpheus-like character. I think this is one of the most creative things Microsoft has done in years and its too bad they did not release it to the public (I suppose they are afraid of problems with Warner Bros?).

Unfortunately, I have not seen this film. If you more video footage of it, please contact me at cbm[at]sfu.ca).

Incomplete video clip of the spoof

The first two minutes of the parody: matrix_spoof.wmv. The original creator of this film is Corey Gouker. I found it here.
