|Windows: Life Without Walls[^] was, once upon a time, a marketing campaign of MicroShaft.
When I heard of this via a radio spot, I *immediately* conceived a parody commercial based upon this very marketing campaign statement, that being "Windows: Life Without Walls".
Here is that commercial, text-only version (yeah, ya gotta use yer imagination...):
[Camera view: From 1000 feet, zooming in on a non-descript computer operating system company's office (non-descript logo on building's side) in a town not unlike that of, say, Redmond, Washington, USA]
A computer operating system employee (COSE) is getting off work, walking out to & getting into his eco-friendly car & driving off toward the nearby evergreen pine tree-laden mountains.
[Camera view: Somewhere in the nearby evergreen forest]
COSE drives into a "clearing" amongst the evergreens, gets out and meets with a home developer who then holds up plans for a home, pointing here & there. They both nod in concurrence.
[Camera view: from a simple distance showing most, and sometimes all, of house in various construction stages; hammering and other construction sounds in the background]
COSE & developer 20 ~ 30 feet from house, off in the nearby-distance here & there watching progress, nodding in approval.
[Camera view: The nearby evergreen forest where the home is being developed]
COSE, in eco-friendly car, drives into once "clearing" where now a new, bright & shiny 2-story house exists.
He gets out, the developer hands him the keys, they shake hands, and developer drives off.
[Camera view: Just outside front door, facing front door]
COSE enters home.
[Camera view: Now inside, from larger Great Room area, facing COSE]
COSE walks into the center of the Great Room, viewing the outside "nature" through the various large windows, some nearly the height of the 2 story home.
[Camera View: From COSE's point-of-view, showing grandiose outside views through 2-story windows.]
[Camera view: back inside on COSE, 10 feet away and 10 feet high]
Camera begins to pull back and up, going "through" larger 2-story windows to the outside, up to about 200 feet high; COSE can't be readily seen; hold camera for 3 ~ 5 seconds to allow the sounds of nature to set in.
All the walls suddenly disappear, leaving just the windows suspended in mid-air, with clear view of COSE standing in the middle of them all.
[Camera view: about 15 feet away from and 10 feet above COSE, with several of the larger 2-story windows in the background]
COSE has exceedingly startled look on his face as to where and why in the hell all the walls just up and disappeared.
[Hold camera for 2 ~ 4 seconds while...]
COSE looks around in stuttered & confused amazement.
[A sudden mildly rushing whoosh of wind is heard, then massive breaking of glass all around as windows fall to the ground quasi-violently shattering all over the place.]
COSE puts hands/arms over head to "protect" himself, ducking down to the ground (he's far enough away he's not hurt).
After a few seconds, COSE begins to look out from under his arms, slowly standing up, hands/arms coming to in front of him (hands facing outward a little as if to be readily available once again to protect himself) all the while still in utter confused astonishment. House keys can be seen dangling in one hand.
[Camera slowly pulls back and up to about 100 feet high, showing full area of the home's foundation, and then some, with scattered broken glass everywhere.]
COSE is standing in the middle of the chaos that just occurred, looking around.
[Fade in larger-print statement.]
A Life of Windows Without Walls.
Fade to white.
Fade in non-descript competitor operating system company logo.
