I call BS

Have you seen that radioshack ad for the 20ish dood who has like 1000 RECORDS? His girlfriend is pissed that the place is a mess and is on her way to what assumes is a biz trip and tells him they'll talk when she comes back. While she's gone he apparently rips lots/ALL records to MP3 and when she returns there's just a MP3 player and docking stereo for it sitting there...

This is a BUNCH OF SHIT !!

1. Ever meet anyone under 35 with more than 10 records? Ok maybe there's 4 of them.

2. Ever meet anyone under 35 with a decent record player? Ok maybe 3 of those 4.

3. IF, and only if, there are those type of people out there, do you honestly think they have the time and inclination to rip all them records??

4. If there are more than 4 of those audiophiles out there that age, do you honestly think they slum for MP3 players at radioshack? PUHleeze

This ad is wrong on so many levels it's offensive.

Ok I'd nail Penelope but that's not the point....

You mean frisbes, don't you? Do you mean there is music on them thar giant black disks? Say it ain't so!

(I just had to explain what records were to my daughter. I even have some old ones. She asked if we should donate them to the museum so other people could see them too. In complete innocence and honesty. Going to go die now.)

Plus, if you're a vinyl fetishist, then you probably wouldn't be willing to settle for rips...what's the point?

That ad was probably created by some account exec in his 40's. When it got passed around to all the idiots, uh, err, decision-makers, the dude became rather young to "appeal to the kids today!"

And nobody stopped to this that it would have taken a week to rip all that stuff.

The only people I know with records are DJ's and they would never stoop so low as to rip them to an IPOD and get rid of the records...I agree with you Groove, but not on the Penelope part...I haven't seen the commercial so I'll reserve judgment on her until i do.
