Bill Gates Public Relations Brilliance at It's Best: From Gina Rubel

Okay, so this morning, my husband e-mailed me a link to Bill Gates Last Day CES Clip. It's a seven minute video spoof (toast or roast -- as you will) of Bill Gate's supposed last day at Microsoft which was aired earlier this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The video is public relations brilliance at it's best. . . and what money can buy! I can only imagine how much this video must have cost. It's star studded with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Brian Williams, Matthew McConaughey, George Clooney, Bono of U-2, Steven Spielberg and Jay-Z! Wow. Now that's power to say the least.

Here's what some others are saying about the video:
