Here is a great example of why the Microsoft stores are ridiculous.
Not only did Microsoft practically clone Apple Stores down to the name tag lanyards, but check out the video below on how a group of employees attempt to be spontaneous and just start dancing.
I’m all for being spontaneous, but there is a line that should not be crossed. This is a retail store, a place where people come to get information, learn, and make purchases.

Even if an Apple Store wanted to do a little dance for 5 minutes, there just would not be the time or space to do so.
The entire display is rather embarassing. Frankly, it’s embarassing to even watch:
