Microsoft knows the “keys” to getting an Apple-sized line at its store opening
And they’re BLACK! See what I did there? No? Well, watch this hilarious video of Microsoft’s latest store opening at University Village, Seattle.
Yes, unlike every single Apple Store grand opening – where folks will often camp out overnight simply to be one of the first to cross the glass threshold of the new store and lay out their cold hard cash – it appears not ONE of the thousand or so people lined up at Microsoft’s grand opening had any plans to buy ANYTHING. In fact, most (including the Mayor) appear to be Apple users. So, what brought in the crowds? Free Black Keys tickets.
Well, it probably looked impressive in a still photo. Good thing The Stranger was there with a video camera to call bullshit.
