A Microsoft employee was forced to download Google Chrome in the middle of his presentation, and it's the most cringe-worthy thing you'll see all day

Microsoft doesn't have the best luck when it comes to tech demos.

Forget the time Microsoft's first Surface tablet bricked on stage — this video, taken in September at Microsoft's annual Ignite conference for developers and IT professionals, is easily one of the more embarrassing moments for the storied tech giant.

The video shows company employee Michael Leary demonstrating how customers can migrate their data and work to Azure, Microsoft's cloud-computing service. But in the middle of his presentation, Leary runs into a problem with Microsoft's home-made Edge browser and is forced to download Chrome, the browser from Google, Microsoft's archrival, to continue.

The moment happens 37 minutes and 25 seconds in:

This video was uploaded on September 29, but only recently started gaining traction thanks to the popular "cringe" subreddit, or forum, on Reddit.

Once Leary realizes he can't continue the presentation on the Edge browser, he tells the audience, "While we're talking here, I'm going to go install Chrome." He then starts nervously laughing, which leads to murmurs and then eventually some clapping from the crowd.

It's an incredible moment.
