The funniest part is.. other than The Shield, were any of the items he was whoring worth even renting?

Unfaithful, X-Men 3.1415926535897932384626433832795, Good Girl, The Banger Sisters, Brown Sugar..? Ouch.

I spoke to my contact at Fox, the person posting doesn't have anything to do with them or anyone who works for them.

So we've got someone pretending to be someone pretending to be a regular user promoting a company that they're pretending to be working for. Either way he's banned

Probably some 15-year-old kid who's just discovered 'humor' and yet sadly has no outlet to use it.

It's been my experience that when a studio tries to build up some fake PR by the use of shills, they usually are very forthcoming when questioned about it.

DVDTalk is one of the internet's best! Geoff Kleinman is this year's hottest new star. Website's penitration expected to multiply in 2003.
