A video going viral on YouTube describes Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's firing of an employee for not exclaiming Bing! enthusiastically.

The man in the video claims to have been at a Microsoft meeting relating to Bing. Ballmer was excitedly and repeatedly exclaiming Bing! during the meeting. Pointing to different staffers he demanded they exclaim Bing! as well. When the man in the video didn't exude enough enthusiasm, he was fired on the spot!

Its unclear if this video is real; however, it is definitely humorous.

amusing, but clearly not real, even the idea of that scenario is ridiculous (unfortunatly ^^)

Funny, but sadly not true. This guy could have a field day in court if Balmer genuinely had fired him for that reason.
