[OT, definitely not a C# post!.]
Update: You can see the
This is not a blog post about windows phone 7 , but it somehow started from the windows 7 phone commercial that was just release today. It will probably be known as the “really” commercial. BTW, this commercial is really good, go ahead and see it. But again , that’s not what this blog post is about. that commercial kept running in my head, something looked very familiar. I thought maybe the idea for the commercial was
stolen err , inspired from some other commercial , but i couldn’t find any. after I gave it a rest , i suddenly remembered that it could have been the theme song to a scene from the “Social network” movie, the scene which i actually liked the most.
Since i couldn’t find that scene on YouTube.com to confirm my suspicion , I went ahead and searched for some information about the “Social Network” soundtrack. I found an interesting piece of evidence over here
BTW, this guy thinks that the rowing scene was genius as well …;-)
I went ahead and looked for the “In the Hall of the Mountain King Op. 23” and I got it!.
I was right, the soundtrack for the windows phone 7 “Really” commercial was the same one as for the rowing scene in the “social network” movie. which makes one wonder , was this on purpose ? It’s a bit of ironic sense windows phone 7 commercial narrates doing only the things you should be doing with _a_ phone but winks (maybe not on purpose) to facebook and the social network (which we all agree is the ultimate procrastinating black hole ) by using the same soundtrack.
Here is also a snippet about this piece from Wikipedia..
I wonder who are the king and who are his trolls..
Anyway,nice commercial ,nice movie scene.
Here is the commercial and some more “In the hall..” samples
