Office 365 new TV ad comercial

Microsoft launched a TV ad comercial a bit weird about sharing information in the office with a Pen.
That should be done by Office 365. 

That a look on the video below

The ad shows office workers piloting a remote copter with a USB flash drive dangling on its bottom. Yes, this commercial has the conceit that using a remote helicopter to move a flash drive between cubicles is an efficient way to transfer sensitive content. It's fun, but definitely not the best option.

Find out how Office 365 can help your team sync secure files in the cloud to improve collaboration and increase productivity. Learn more at http://office.microsoft.com/enterprise.
