New Microsoft video claims the world is "ready" for Windows 8

The keynote event for the Windows 8 press launch in New York City earlier today began with a rather interesting video clip. Now, Microsoft has released that video as yet another new promotional tool for Windows 8.

The 97 second clip shows a spinning globe of the world that is placed in several locations around the world; it also shows a number of recent Microsoft events from overseas. They include the recent world record setting Windows AppFest and the Windows 8 pre-launch event in China that was just held earlier this week.

Obviously, the theme is that it won't be just the US or Europe that will feel the impact of the launch of Windows 8 but that this is truly a global event. It's currently unknown if this clip will become a part of Microsoft's official TV commercial campaign for Windows 8.

As we reported earlier this week, Microsoft is expanding its number of Windows 8 TV ads and creating a several of them for different territories and languages. They included a parkour ad for Asian countries and an "after party clean up" clip for Latin American customers; q new US ad features an indie rock band playing on the road.
