I Need a Moment to Gush

Enjoy the (oddly suave) Movie Thief. I know I do.

Movies need to make their money, and I can respect it. I think the notoriety and support a pirate gets from pirating will always be too good to ignore. I believe when they make DVDs fairer to the consumer more people will consume.

When I purchase a DvD I do so because I want to watch that movie, not advertisements. and don't even get me started on non-skippable adds. When the person who purchases the product has to sit through 5+ adds and 2 FBI warnings while the pirated movie watcher only has to endure the FBI warning (they like keeping them in the movies now, apparently, probably for the irony.) before watching their movie then there is something wrong with the process.

It's one of the things that really upset me about my Avatar: The Last Airbender DVD set. (It was just so poorly put together with about 4-5 adds before you even got to the episode.) At least it was commercials for other Nickelodean products and not rented space from other sources.

That's the difference, it's significant.

No pirating movies is not cool. But its no different than pirating video games or music. As long as there is a desire it is going to happen. Ridiculous punishments do little to dissuade pirates and only vilify the company to the consumer.

But these commercials are cute.

I saw this at 5 AM, shortly before I went out to exercise, when I'm rather sleepy-headed. Until I came back here now, I half-thought that I had dreamt it. O_o Dancing camera man, indeed. He's actually rather cute.

That thing is a MMPR villain waiting to happen, or did it already? Hmmm......
