Thumbs down Blu-Ray Disc Association sinks to new low with childish YouTube attack ads!

Just when you though you've seen it all, it has been confirmed that the Blu-Ray Disc Association has launched (un)professional viral attack ads against HD DVD on YouTube:

Desperation has set in, perhaps, with no answer to the $199 HD-A3?

They looked pretty professionally done.. and how are they viral? I mean it's not like they tried to make it look like they were just bluray enthusiasts making videos and gosh, look at the grassroots effort by our fans or something.

They're obviously made professionally, have the animated bluray logo.. they're advertisements for the format.

Boohoo.

Well, it's [BD] an inferior format in just about every aspect, so if they actually told the truth in their commercials the thing wouldn't sell.

Doesn't really surprise me. BD certainly won't sell due to the quality/value of the product, might as well try to brain wash morons who aren't literate enough to read reviews.

Makes sense... I mean... DVDs aren't selling anymore and HD-DVD has clearly become the new format of choice.

Any one who didn't find those ads funny is a fan boy. The ads are funny as hell.

(I only have an HD DVD player for the record)

I favor neither format, and I think these commercials are dumb.

These remind me of those cable vs satellite commercials where cable tries to poke fun of satellite even though satellite has been taking their customers left and right over the last few years.

BTW what happened to VHS in that second one? They skipped it.
