Intel Engineers Shot Out of Cannon, Recreate “Intel Inside” Chimes

intelcannonguyHere’s a nice distraction from Intel’s mounting legal woes: A video of five helmeted Intel (INTC) engineers in Finland being shot from a cannon Gonzo-the-great style at an arrangement of massive tubular bells in a bid to bodily recreate the “Intel Inside” chimes.

Crazy Finns…

UPDATE: According to the disappearing disclaimer secreted away at the bottom of this page, the video’s not only fake (and, in retrospect I suppose that is obvious), but part of an Intel® Sponsors of Tomorrow campaign.

Yes, I am ashamed.

“All copy and videos are part of a marketing campaign for Intel® Sponsors of Tomorrow™. No Intel employees were harmed in the making of this film. All characters featured in the videos were played by actors specially trained in silly costumes and Finnish accents. Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to fire anyone out of a cannon.”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
