A CHINESE LADY has been rather unceremoniously removed from the stage at a Microsoft event because she, fairly or otherwise, wanted to call an end to the proceedings.
The stage invader appeared at the Surface tablet launch in China and from the looks of things, was either trying to draw attention to herself, stop some girls from dancing, or just stop another technology launch from happening. Our money, small though it is, is on a combination of all three.
The video shows the lady on stage doing some arm waving. Some more arm waving, not hers, takes place, and she is joined on stage by some burly security men.
They bundle her off stage and the event is allowed to carry on as normal. Well as normally as any technology event can where an old lady has taken to the stage, waved her arms around, been grabbed and removed from the premises.
According to the text under the Youtube video the lady was upset about the noise caused by the event, and there is a suggestion that it might have kept her grandchildren from going to sleep.
Whether those grandchildren are called Larry and Sergey we don't know. We suspect that the next time the family is disturbed by Chinese pop music, backing dancers and a Microsoft tablet launch, they'll just shut their windows and turn up the lullabies. µ
