Gym Class: Microsoft Steals Idea for Commercial


[Media: Video]

I originally wasn't going to post about Microsoft's Bang Bang commercial, which is banned for reasons I don't understand, but then it got interesting when it was pointed out that Microsoft ripped off a college short film called Gym Class.

Gym Class is about a bunch of students being bored in gym class. One girl pretends to shoot herself in the head and suddenly she dies and everyone wonders what happens. For a clip about fake guns, it's quite violent.

So watch the original, and then check out Microsoft's version. Which one do you think is better?
