Microsoft Unveils the Bing Jingle

Here it is, the winner of Microsoft's 'Bingle' contest.

A few of weeks back, a couple of the Bing interns posted a video on YouTube launching a Bing jingle contest. With a grand prize of $500, they were looking for a catchy song to go along with Microsoft's latest 'decision making' engine, Bing. The the winning jingle has been announced and good grief is probably the only way to describe it.

When we wrote about the contest there were only two entries. The winner, and the one we ended up embedding in the story. When you see the video, you might understand why we chose the guy yelling, "I like to Bing it, Bing it!" when given the choice. That said, the winner was chosen by the number of views and the quality of ratings on YouTube so maybe I'm alone in thinking it's just awful. Check it out below.

Bing goes the Internet

Also if anyone is planning on joining the Bing facebook group, we'd like to point out that it seems one of the interns has linked to his or her desktop instead of Facebook on the page with the contest announcement. You can become a fan here if you're interested.

    actually, however atrocious the song is, 'bing goes the internet' is a pretty clever slogan... and its just been handed to MS for free... I think a lot of marketing types may soon be out of a job

    No guys... this DOES sound like something Microsoft would put in a commercial..

    I am sitting here watching that stupid video going "this is soo ridiculous, no one could possibly think this was a good idea!!" and then when I heard the chorus again I realized that it is so stupid that it's something Microsoft's ad team would do.

    So it actually makes sense...

    Unbearably wretched. Only Microsoft would think that this crap was acceptable for a marketing campaign. Even the most palsied of startups wouldn't dream of spending money on something this dreadful.
