Microsoft Regrets Sexting Ad
"Microsoft takes the issue of sexting very seriously and it was never our intent to promote it in any way," a Microsoft spokesperson told Consumer Reports.
According to Microsoft, the ad, in which a young man snaps a picture of his bare chest and sends it to a friend, "did not come across in the spirit with which it was intended. Upon further review, we have acknowledged that and since removed the clip."
The video is still available on Microsoft's Kin site, but the alleged sext appears to have been edited out.
Of course, the original ad can still be seen below via YouTube in all its lurid glory. [Ed. note: Brace yourself!]
