Microsoft Makes Fake Waterslide Viral Video

A "megawoosh" waterslide video has been making the rounds on the internet this week. While most have already come to the conclusion that it's a hoax, its gets even more interesting when we find that Microsoft appears to be behind the video.

The website for megawoosh.com now forwards to a German page (translated) for what appears to promote the "planning" aspects of Microsoft Office Project 2007.

Regardless of what significance this really plays in Microsoft's latest marketing tactics, it's still a pretty entertaining video. Check it out below.

  • The video looks surprisingly real, I was expecting some cheesy CGI effect.

    Yeah if it is real that would make me crap my pants flying that far.. Think if they miscalculated and he ran right into the pool.. Instead of in it..

    What tipped me off was how fast he sped up while going down the slide, thats waaaay to fast for a relatively low incline. Also, two buckets of water aren't going to cover that much slide.

    An awesome idea, but definately fake.

    also, notice how the pool itself doesn't even shake after he lands in it.
