Microsoft created an internal music video, performed by the so-called Vista Street Band, to promote its sales efforts for Vista and SP1. The video, intended to be humorous, has found its way onto YouTube.

TMO confirmed with a Microsoft spokesperson that the ad was created for internal use. "This video was produced internally as part of our sales engagement efforts to excite the Windows Vista Sales Team on the SP1 product milestone," according to the spokesperson. "It was meant to be funny for an internal audience and not intended for external distribution."
