Where do you want to go today?
Straight to hell, apparently.
The other day I saw another Microsoft commercial on TV: sublime choral
music drifts through the background as the unseen user surfs through the
Internet and various Microsoft content using Internet Explorer. The
commercial closes with the Microsoft slogan "Where do you want to go
today?" and a final, furious blast of music. It's a very cool effect.
But if you dig a little deeper...
As it turns out, the background music is the Dies Irae of Mozart's
Requiem Mass. And the words of the final blast of music which
accompanies "Where do you want to go today?" are actually "confutatis
maledictis, flammis acribus addictis..." In English: "When the damned
are confounded, and consigned to sharp flames..."; which describes
exactly where I want to go today.
Unfortunately, while Explorer will take you to hell for free, the
upgrade to purgatory is pretty steep.
