Hey, Microsoft can make a good advertisement (link roundup)

Well, at least an advertisement that's fun to watch. As I understand it, this "megawhoosh" viral spot featuring a wild ride on a water slide is supposed to promote Microsoft Office at a related site. It's all explained here. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Download a paper toy and win a skateboard.

2. Stuffed platypus.

3. Participate in the Scribblenauts art theme and you may win a Threadless credit.
