After offering a preview of its upcoming productivity software two months ago, Microsoft is selling its new Office for S$139 a year to home users here to install on up to five PCs, Macs or tablets.

The accompanying video featuring an “intervention specialist” is cute, funny and completely in Google’s cheeky style.
