Google Wants You To Stage "Interventions" For Your Uncool Friends Using Hotmail Or AOL

Google posted a funny new video advertisement, asking Gmail fans to poach all their friends from other email services.

It’s as easy as visiting, logging in, and picking out your friends who don’t yet use Gmail. Google will then send your friends a stylish invite to join its insanely popular email service.

The video itself presents Dr. Richard Muscat, an “Intervention Specialist,” who gives a brief classroom presentation on switching to Gmail. He analogizes your Hotmail-using friends to an outmoded and obsolete floppy disk. Ouch.
