Microsoft's Clippy returns to kill Siri and hack the world

New, 13 comments

Hi! It looks like you’re creating a music video. Would you like some assistance today?

If you activate the maze screensaver, you never know what you might find. Buried deep at the end is Clippy, the Microsoft Office assistant of the '90s, and he’s not happy. He’s stuck on a boring planet with the old Start button, Netscape Navigator, and AOL. A new personal digital assistant, SHANiA (Siri), is all the rage now, but he’s not going to let her take over the world. Clippy is on a mission, an adventure that takes him through the pipes screensaver, Solitaire, horrific internet cat memes, and a whole lot of nostalgia.

Clippy is ready to take on Siri with the help of the poop emoji and a whole lot of cursors. The trippy music video is the work of British duo Delta Heavy, and it’s set to the regular EDM beats that the pair use on equally crazy videos. Sit back and watch this Clippy acid trip in all its wacky glory.
