Found: A collection of wacky Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer videos

By on October 8, 2013, 9:30 AM

Outgoing Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is well-known for his on-stage antics during keynotes and product launches but did you know he once starred alongside co-founder Bill Gates in an Austin Powers-themed short? Or that the duo once filmed a spoof of the Night at the Roxbury? Maybe you missed the Budweiser-inspired Wazzup play day video they filmed for the PDC 2001 keynote?

As the gang at The Verge points out, the two have been featured in a number of short videos filmed for Microsoft over the years. My favorite is probably the aforementioned play day video followed closely by the Roxbury bit. How about you – what’s your favorite Bill and Steve moment?

Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

These are old videos, from a different Microsoft era, but I must say, what I see here is a couple of billionaires don't caring and having tons of fun.

It's what I would do if I was a billionaire.

But my apartment seems more hi tech than their offices, and I don't even have a tablet.

What about during the time the video was made? What did your apartment look like back then?

Maybe they are classy enough not to rub their vast wealth in everyone's face
