Raunchy dance routine a PR nightmare for Microsoft

Apparently a Raunchy video dance routine has turned into a PR nightmare for Microsoft:

A techno-dance routine that preceded Microsoft’s Windows Azure presentation at the Norwegian Developers Conference this week featured a group of women jumping around on stage to a song that included several drug references and this line: “The words MICRO and SOFT don’t apply to my penis.”

Is anyone out there more confused that there’s any sort of dance routine involved in announcing anything to do with a cloud computing offering? What’s next, the next version of Exchange server getting a funky laser light show? Office point releases having mock funerals held to herald the death of the previous point releases?

This on the heals of the a funky hip hop dance routine for a crowd of gamers who I’m willing to bet, never dance… I’m really wondering what madman has got his hand on the “dance” lever at Microsoft PR headquarters.
