Oh Mr. Ballmer, you are always such a treat, you literally never cease to amaze and entertain us. If that was not what you had in mind, we apologize.

To celebrate the opening of the seventh Microsoft store, this one in Bellevue, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer showed up and yelled at, ahem, addressed the crowd before cutting the tape and announcing the store open.

A very large crowd was in attendance, and following various points of Ballmer’s short speech would cheer, with Windows Phone 7 and Kinect receiving the largest cheers. The new Microsoft store looks bright and fun, if you are nearby be sure and drop in. Thanks to TechFlash for taking the video.

Oh, and don’t forget that this was yet another MSFT even brought to you by your friendly local pop-diva.
