Microsoft Trying To Talk To Millennials Is A Glorious Trainwreck

Posted: Updated:

Microsoft considers itself a next-level company that knows how to reach millennials.

But an email it sent to potential interns is, quite frankly, a fantastic mess.

The memo was sent to prospects from the San Francisco Bay area, asking them to come meet with company big-wigs for Internapalooza — an massive networking event between the next generation and companies like Snapchat and Uber.

The email invited the youngins to come "get lit on a Monday night" with "hella noms, lots of dranks" and "Yammer beer pong tables."

... *Pause for effect*

Twitter, naturally, took the material and ran with it.

A Microsoft spokesperson later told Gizmodo that "the email was poorly worded and not in keeping with our values as a company. We are looking into how this occurred and will take appropriate steps to address it."

And with that, a moment for Microsoft in recognition of a valiant effort.
