Google is tapping into these anxiety-provoking moments in its new Chromebook ad, which was on Monday.
In the ad, Google shows a serious of nightmarish clips highlighting the glitches you've likely experienced, from being met with the blue screen of death to your computer quitting "unexpectedly."
The footage is timed to dramatic music that hilariously captures the chaos and distress of these situations (and the tumultuous emotions you likely feel when things like this happen).
In the middle of the video, the music is abruptly interrupted by an annoying voice repeatedly saying, "A serious error has occurred" as an internet security dialogue box appears on the screen and won't go away, even after hitting "close" multiple times.
At the end of the video, Google boasts about some of Chromebook's features, such as virus protection, automatic updates and battery life.
It's your play, Apple and Microsoft.
