[vox] Very old news, but funny


Date: Thu, 19 Jun 1997 13:36:37 -0700 (PDT)
From: Stephen Speicher
Subject: Malepropylene Microdictus 

Whoever is the genius in the advertisement deptartment at Microsoft, they
have done it this time. Anybody seen the IE ads on TV lately? The one with
a very effective choral music playing in the background?  Well, the
background music is the Confutatis Maledictis from Mozart's Requiem (Mass
for the dead).  And the words of the final blast of music which
accompanies "Where do you want to go today?" are saying "confutatis
maledictis, flammis acribus addictis..." which means "the damned and
accused are convicted to flames of hell"
Is this the right message for an ad?

Perhaps the advertising droids were feeling a bit abused that day....
