Out-of-place DVD ads

Over the weekend, Deb and I purchased Stargate: Atlantis season 2 on DVD. I was surprised to find three ads for other DVDs on the first disc. Granted, advertising is nothing new, and I've seen ads on other purchased DVDs before, too. The interesting thing in this case is the content. What marketing "genius" at Columbia Tristar thought that fans of a science-fiction show would be interested in Dawson's Creek and Bewitched? I can't imagine.

PS - Perhaps they were picked at random.
PPS - Or perhaps they were released at the same time as these discs.

Don't pretend you didn't love the ad for Dawson's Creek. Don't pretend that you didn't go out later on and secretly buy it.

You can come and search my house if you believe I'm hiding Dawson's Creek somewhere. And then you can accuse me of hiding it off-site when you came to visit, like some military regime hiding weapons from UN inspectors.

I may also have to make sure you don't plant any evidence.
