The Web is percolating today over a new online video ad for a product called Microsoft Songsmith.
I repeat, this is real. The ad originates from a product page hosted at Microsoft.com, so unless it's some kind of elaborate hack or bizarre (masochistic?) hoax campaign by Microsoft itself, that's about as much proof as it takes.
You can actually download a free trial of Songsmith from Microsoft's page. That would be the ultimate proof, I guess.
