What just happened? Microsoft is attempting to make the most of the holidays, and is having a bit of fun doing so. The Redmond tech giant recently published a "commercial" for Microsoft Holiday Hits, a compilation of 60 festive holiday tunes remade by Microsoft and based on its various product lines.

It’s the sort of gag typical of sketch comedy shows like Saturday Night Live, but from Microsoft.

The collection features hits such as Deck the Halls with 90s Clip Art, Frosty the Windowsman, Bing-le Bells and Please Mute Ye Merry Gentlemen.

Bingle Bells, Bingle Bells

Bing goes all the way

Oh what fun it is to surf

the World Wide Web today, hey

Sure, it’s totally unnecessary (again, this isn’t a real product), but given how hectic of a year it has been, it’s fun to see that Microsoft still has a sense of humor through it all.
