    Windows 1.0, Only $99!

    I found an old commercial for Windows 1.0 in which Steve Ballmer shows his freaking-out tendencies and comes off more than a little desperate (like a used car salesman that took $20 out of his own pocket to make a TV ad) to get people interested in Windows. I think it's pretty funny and contrasts well with the seemingly little effort they have to put into getting people to buy their products now .

    Link.

    I should note that there may be some explicit content on that site if you go looking for it...

    Yeah, I think it was supposed to be a parody of infomercial clichés...
    "but wait, there's more!"...

    Edit:
    This wasn't a TV commercial
    There are at least a dozen of these videos floating around, some starring Bill & Steve together. They were made for the amusement of the employees and played at the yearly company meetings.
