Microsoft's Notorious 'Letters From Dead People' Lobbyist Makes a Fool Out of Himself on YouTube

Summary: 'Zuck attack' hits the tubes, this time showing his alter-ego as an actor, not just an actor who pretends to be a front man for small businesses whilst actually serving and leading Microsoft's front groups (ATL and ACT)

LOBBYING is a curious occupation. In politics, many former officials turn into lobbyists, who then use the connections they acquired whilst in public office. In some cases, politicians are brought from the entertainment industry, people who act well. Think along the lines of Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is selling out to Microsoft.

One failed actor that we wrote about many times is Jonathan Zuck from ACT. He has failed to impress or to masquerade because almost everyone in European politics -- at least those whom we speak to -- seem to have heard about his agenda and past blunders, such as engaging in a fake letters campaign defending Microsoft ('on behalf' of deceased individuals).

“We were very much amused to find this old video where Zuck is seen talking about strippers and stuff.”OK, so as an actor he hardly ever succeeded (he did try), but at least he is realising his ambitions by harming society and ruining social solidarity, not just in his home country but also in Brussels. Zuck is lobbying for OOXML, software patents, and just about anything else that's in Microsoft's interests. It's not a speculation as we have gathered facts over the years.

We were very much amused to find this old video where Zuck is seen talking about strippers and stuff. One thought comes to mind: "what on Earth was he thinking when he made this?"

Well, maybe he is trying a career change, going back to being an actor rather than act (pretend) as a lobbyist for small businesses while Microsoft is sending him cheques (so that he carries on playing a role for Microsoft). Let us know what you think about this video, which only received about 300 views in 2 years.
