The real product is the t-shirt, and the target audience is geeks not clueless J6P's.

Does anyone know if this thing works with DVD-Rs? If so, I might be tempted to get one.

The problem is with double-sided DVDs.

While you are rewinding one side, the other side is now fast-forwarding.

There is no right answer.

This is a gag right? Are people really THAT stupid?

DVDs DON'T NEED TO BE REWOUND, JUST ANOTHER SIGN OF HOW BAD THE WORLD IS GOING UNDER BUSH!

Wow, that was off-topic.

Funny stuff, though. At least it looks cool as it's rewinding.

Heck, if they were $10 each I'd buy 3 or for as X-mas gifts. This is funny, but not $30 funny.
