Watch MSI's Viral X-Slim Butt Clenching Video

Could computer companies be turning to viral internet videos for their marketing efforts? After all, some videos can spread like wildfire – though having them created by a corporation kind of takes away from the fun.

The latest effort comes from MSI, which, in a possibly brilliant but somewhat tasteless move, has created a video showing off how its thin and light X-Slim notebook can be caught between a pair of clenched butt cheeks. Check out the video below:

The video, besides promoting the thin profile of the X-Slim, could be a promotion for MSI's own video contest to win a trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

Earlier this month, Microsoft made its own viral video showing an impressive water slide stunt in promotion of Office Project 2007.

    what else can he stick in there...

    i don't think it's THE laptop that is being thrown because they would have damaged hundreds while trying to get it right every time.
