Foy created his own commercial and put it online

If you are a fan of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 smartphone OS and have wondered why the Microsoft media campaigns weren't going all out to show the features of the phone, you aren't alone. Many people have felt that Microsoft could have done a better job marketing WP7 and that perhaps the lack of quality marketing is one of the reasons the phones haven't sold in significant numbers.

One Microsoft fan by the name of Brandon Foy took it upon himself to make a commercial to show off the features of Windows Phone 7. Needless to say, the commercial was very well received by fans of WP7. The commercial did so well that Microsoft promised to use the video Foy produced in some marketing campaigns if it hit 200,000 views on YouTube. 

That mark was never reached with the video at fewer than 110,000 viewers as of now.

However, the silver lining for Foy was that he grabbed enough attention for himself with the video that Microsoft hired him as a UX Designer. Foy is a graphic designer by trade. Foy tweeted the news writing, "Awesome day! Huge thanks to everyone who supported my #WP7 videos. Today was my first day as a UX Designer for #MSFT!=D."





"Spreading the rumors, it's very easy because the people who write about Apple want that story, and you can claim its credible because you spoke to someone at Apple." -- Investment guru Jim Cramer
