Microsoft launches Songsmith, its GarageBand killer, with lame ad

If you have five minutes to kill (and we mean really, really kill) and you have an interest in glow-in-the-dark towels (don't ask), we invite you to preview this new ad from Microsoft Research for Songsmith. Songsmith is Microsoft's answer to the Mac's GarageBand app -- which allows you to create your own music easily on your PC. Let's hope that the Songsmith app is a whole lot less lame than this never ending ad for it.
