Top Spot of the Week: Microsoft Zune's "The Ballad of Tina Pink"
A young woman is transported into her Zune handheld unit where she experiences a surreal adventure, replete with pink bunnies on a music video shoot, and an underwater encounter with pink jellyfish. The metaphorical worlds she visits represent her pictures, music, movies and other aspects of her life.
