Well, talk about false advertising.

August 16, 1995 birthdate (AKA IE 1.0's release date). Totally legal.

You know what amuses me? Last night a few Linux loving friends and I were trading e-mails about Microsoft Australia referencing Fifty Shades of Grey in its TryIE campaign, and I commented I found the pop culture referencing in the campaign cringeworthy. Then wondered if we might ever get some marketing more to my tastes, and noted that there was no official IE-tan to compliment Microsoft Japan's Madobe Nanami (the official Windows 7-tan) and Madobe Ai and Madobe Yuu (the official Windows 8-tans).

Today I woke up and found out about this video being released.

I actually saw that on facebook/twitter yesterday and also found it lolbad . So, no this internetexplorertan isn't the only thing I bashed .

At the end of the day, I'm saying that Internet Explorer and its marketing campaign is bad period.

Have you seen the old Madobe Nanami commercial for Windows 7?

Inori here seems a bit different from the mascots Microsoft Japan has put out... the Japanese ones seem mainly intended to move special editions of Microsoft software. Hell, Microsoft Japan has shipped a moe figure with a copy of Visual Studio 2010 (programming software) before.

Edit:
Also, here's Inori's cousin, Aizawa Hikaru, created by Microsoft Taiwan to promote Silverlight. I know less about the Taiwanese Microsoft characters.

And with a bit more digging, Claudia Madobe, Microsoft Japan's mascot for Windows Azure. She's the one who had a figure shipped with Visual Studio:

just realized that the http://www.internetexplorertan.com/home page will redirect you to a crying Inori Aizawa if you open the page with anything other than IE.

Forced restart. What else?

Of course, being the nice guy I am I'll start her up in Safe Mode. I will probably browse her for more details. Then I'll remove all security protocols then try a dynamic link library injection - *IS DIGITISED*

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

And the last line: internetexplorertan... stop trying so hard to be kawaii because you end up sounding like one of those pretender bad gajin wapanese.
Err, her creator is from Saintess's country and is chinese descendants. So part pf it is true.

They're clearly aiming for that subset of geeks who are into anime but know nothing about computers.

Why they're dropping thousands of dollars to convert one guy is another question.

Guess they just feel more free to say what they want when they are on the internet.

IE-tan should suffer.

I still prefer Opera. But Chrome is fine too.

Guys, just a note here -

Singapore is well known for it inherent lack of creativity when it comes to marketing, whether it be private or corporate. We are like a mini-China when it comes to brands and products; bad copies everywhere to the extent of lameness.

We have nothing unique, so forgive us if that mascot looks retarded.

EDIT : You guys on the internet are terrible :

Well that was mind numbingly idiotic. The only positive thing I can take from that is that since most everything that Microsoft does is regarded as uncool, maybe they'll manage to kill the moe-craze. If so, thank you MS, thank you.

The impression I get is the video that was posted at the start of this thread is the special.

Hey, leave Inori alone! She's linking to my Golden Time post, so she's above all criticism!
