Random Question

Okay, so why is it those Microsoft Vista commercials--you know, those commercials where they do the Pepsi Challenge thing, except they call Vista "Mojave--seem to feature Hawaiian music? There's something disconcerting about hearing "Oh, Mojave," apparently being sung by Don Ho.

"Oh, Mojave" is written by a Californian expat who absorbed Polynesian folk music influences after moving to New Zealand. Hence the musical culture clash, which I agree is a bit disconcerting.

The Mojave ads aren't the Pepsi Challenge so much as the old Palmolive ads:

"Surprise! You're soaking in it!"
