Microsoft wins the ugliest Christmas sweater title again, and it’s for sale

Microsoft Windows 2022 Ugly Sweater is the theme of Clippy, the paperclip-shaped office assistant. The outfit is in such questionable taste that it’s hard to find anything worse on the internet. That said, Microsoft is selling it for a good cause.

When we say that Microsoft is diversifying. It is now a telephone operator in France, the company launches in fashion. For five years, Microsoft has actually stuck to creating the ugliest sweatshirts possible for the holiday season. What started as a little joke on Twitter has become a well-established tradition. As you know, Microsoft wants to reduce players’ energy consumption, and what’s better than a good sweater to lower the heating bill? The Redmond company doesn’t just have the brains to come up with the most ridiculous-looking garment, it also has the guts to sell it.

Microsoft’s fun tradition of the ugly Christmas sweater was born in 2017. The company’s social media team then had created a fake Windows 95 jumper and shared the photo on Twitter. The success is immediate, the users of the platform ask Microsoft to market this article. Since then, the creatives in Redmond have come out a very very cheeky sweater every year and sell it for a good cause. This year, all proceeds will go to the College Success Foundation, a Washington-based NGO dedicated to helping students from underprivileged backgrounds.

Microsoft has released a Windows-themed Christmas sweater every year for the past five years

Microsoft’s Ugly Sweater 2022 features Clippy, the anthropomorphic paper clip that helped Microsoft Office users. If its usefulness cannot be disputed, it must be admitted that Clippy, even in the 90s, was not a success in terms of design. It almost rose from the ashes in Teams in 2019, but someone at Microsoft had the good taste to prevent this all too anachronistic return.

Ugly Christmas sweaters are an established American institution. If Microsoft isn’t the only company selling it, it’s the one publishing the most hideous. This may be due to the very nature of Microsoft Office, which is now called Office 365, the product it promotes. If this software package is extremely advanced and functional, it represents the most boring and austere in terms of user interface. If you want Microsoft’s Clippy shirt, go to the US Xbox store (they ship to France) and pay €73.95. By ordering it now, you should receive it before Christmas.
