Watch: Microsoft’s real life Live Tile, a rock band and a collapsing wall

Check this out. As part of the promotion for its Windows 8 launch, Microsoft plonked a ‘live’ Live Tile on a street in Oslo (Norway), those curious enough to step on it got a personal invite to a raucous rock concert via a collapsing wall.

Regardless of whether the whole thing is a set-up — anyone getting a surprise would surely move off of the tile — the sheer exuberance of the stunt, run by McCann Oslo, is golden.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.
