Microsoft Sent Out A Sketchy E-mail About ‘Baes’ Playing Beer Pong

In a world dominated by the ‘coolness’ of Snapchat, Facebook and Google, Microsoft has become the ugly older sister in the corner that no one wants to chill with, unless you play Xbox all day. So, being the resourceful thing Microsoft is — it decided the easiest way for people to pay more attention to Microsoft would be to get “bae” interns super “lit” on, “lots of dranks” at a post Internapolooza party in San Francisco, on Monday July 11.

Like, hells yeah, right!? Not so much.

The Internet spoiled Microsoft’s date with destiny when people started circulating the crudely worded email. Twitter user, Patrick Burtchaell, posted a screenshot of the email he claims was sent to his roommate.

Intenapolooza, according to its website, is the largest gathering of interns in the world, where everyone can connect and learn from professionals.

So, what’s wrong with stating just stating the facts?

For example a message that simply said, “You’re invited to Microsoft’s Post-Internapolooza After Party! Hope you can make it!” would have been so legit. With that said, Microsoft’s introductory salutation was, “Hey Bae Intern <3,” and concluded with the phrase, “HELL YES TO GETTING LIT ON A MONDAY NIGHT.”

Really, all caps? Talk about desperate. At least the event is co-sponsored by Snapchat, Google and Facebook, because I don’t think Microsoft has pure intentions.

What the hell is a Yammer beer pong table, anyway? Roomba beer pong is where it’s at.

Sorry Microsoft, I’m really busy that week.
