Beware of the man who lives in your photocopier. Wait, what?

Today’s ‘Weekend WTF’ video is brought to you by Microsoft.

The software giant has always fought a vicious battle against piracy, with everything from its Office suite to Windows operating system ending up on the Internet. So what do they do? They release the world’s most bizarre video to tell people not to buy counterfeit software.

I don’t know if it’s the creepy closeup of an eye or the guy in black spandex trying to steal a credit card, but all I know is if I found a guy creeping in my photocopier, I’d jump up on the thing and give him a few things to take a photo of.
