VIDEO: Watch Steve Ballmer blub his way through Microsoft farewell

It’s been the talk of the tech world over recent days, and now footage has surfaced of Steve Ballmer’s farewell speech to staff at Microsoft’s company convention (opens in new tab) last week.

Ballmer has been famed for his hyperactive, bombastic performances at events over the years and his showing at the Key Arena in Seattle was very much true to form.

Watch the video above for tears, bellows, high fives and a Dirty Dancing-inspired climax. It needs to be seen.
