Microsoft has announced the winner of its Bing jingle contest – a short song entitled ‘Bing goes the internet’ by Jonathan Mann.

The competition saw a number of entries posted to Bing’s YouTube page, which is somewhat ironic since Google owns YouTube, and the winner was decided by the number of page views and good ratings that it garnered.

Mr. Mann, who claims to write a song a day, filmed his winning entry using a homemade green screen and an ad hoc lighting array and his work was described by Microsoft’s Bing team as “both catchy and funny.”

Nonetheless, the video has received a mixed reception from listeners, many of whom describe it as ‘annoying.’
