I hate to subject you to this. But there comes a time in which a train wreck is impossible to not stare at. And I have a locomotive collision for you.

It’s no secret that I find Windows Phone and iOS to be, far and away, the best mobile platforms. Even though I hold that view, I have some damn dignity about myself, at least enough that I’m not going to rhapsodize my love of the two smartphone lines in song.

You see where this is going. A collection of women, the self-described ‘Windows Phone fangirls’ have put together a ‘rap’ ‘video’ about Windows Phone. It is every bit as horrifying as you might anticipate. Our friends over at WinRumors called it “hilarious…embarassing…[and] funny.” We agree with part of that. Start the clock, now that the video is picking up traction, it is only a matter of time until it is taken down.

Also, to whoever wrote the lyrics, please stop.

As our title says, we hope that this is either self-effacing parody, or some odd shot at astroturfing. Sound off in the comments, what do you think?
