Despite its prohibitive price (74 euros), the sweater is already sold out.
True traditions in the US – albeit in decline – the season of “ugly sweaters” is fast approaching. For the year-end celebration, it’s up to whoever will wear the most kitschy, cheesy sweater… in a word: ugly.”
And Microsoft has decided to offer its vision of the ugly sweater with a version in the company’s colors. On a blue and green background we find the famous Clippy, the paperclip assistant that was part of Microsoft Office from 1977 to 2003.
And the clothes were literally ripped off despite a salty price (73.95 euros): it is simply sold out in all sizes. Microsoft, however, specifies that the sale will go to support the College Success Foundation, which helps low-income students access and succeed in college.
A way to make a nice gesture and remember with nostalgia the existence of the paper clip, which was supposed to answer all the questions of Office users.
A return of Clippy?
He could also make a comeback. At least that was Microsoft’s promise in a Twitter post last year. If it reached 20,000 likes, Clippy would make a comeback.
The post currently has 166,000 likes, but no sign of Clippy apart from the ugly sweater.
