And the Fort Worth-based electronics company opted to launch the re-launch with a Web site featuring some dude in San Francisco yukking it via a video feed with some other dude in New York. And they're both accosting passers-by (and, maybe, plants?) who, no doubt, are on their way to a Best Buy whilst wondering what in the what is going on. A catastrophuck from which you won't be able to avert your eyes and ears -- your poor, poor ears. This will not end well.
