Microsoft: How guest instore appearances can go horribly wrong…

Machine Gun Kelly’s (MGK) mix tapes have been burning up the underground for a while now. So you can imagine Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) salivated at the chance to win “street-cred” and joined hip-hop magazine The Source to hold a special event at the Atlanta, Georgia Microsoft Store as their past events featuring artists like Flo Rida (who performed at the Microsoft Store in Orlando) had gone well.

MGK felt compelled to take his performance up a notch by jumping onto tables in the store, stomping around and destroying a number of laptops.  The distraught Microsoft Store employees tried to plead with their guest to stop and cut his mic. But that appears to have only egged on and provoked MGK further as shocked/amused onlookers watched and recorded the incident.

In the aftermath Microsoft distanced itself from the incident, saying it didn’t hire MGK.  But it did invite him inside.  Microsoft was hoping for attention, clearly, by the guest event, but that hope was soon extinguished when a cocky MGK ditched the script.
