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.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
