When Clippy got the axe (Funny videos from Microsoft)
« on: August 22, 2011, 04:59:34 PM »
A look back, for those that missed it or want to see it again.

Quote
In 2001, a Microsoft advertising campaign for Office XP included the (now defunct) website officeclippy.com, which highlighted the disabling of Clippit in the software. It featured the animated adventures of Clippit (voiced by comedian Gilbert Gottfried, in an annoying voice) as he learned to cope with unemployment ("X...XP...As in, ex-paperclip?!") and parodied behaviors of the Office assistant.

Hehehehe~! :)

Clippy never set me off like it did to some people. Yeah, it was annoying, but it wasn't the worst thing.
