    Reservoir Dogs: SE DVD - Cheap Marketing Gimmick

    Recently, JT was asking about the cheap marketing gimmick, of re-issuing MIB with a small featurette about MIIB and a trailer. Well, sit back and take a gander at this. They are releasing 5 different covers for Resevoir Dogs on DVD August 27th.

    The DVD will be packaged in five different flavors, each themed around one of Reservoir Dogs' five main characters: Mr. Pink, Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr. Blonde and Mr. Brown. The latter will be available in a more limited capacity than the others.

    I don't have a really good picture of the Mr. Brown (Quentin Tarintino) but here is one of the of the other 4 cases. This is a really lame way to sell more copies. Especially since it's just a slip case around the regular DVD case.

    Mr. Orange for me. It's only a "cheap promotional gimmick to sell more copies" if someone is dumb enough to buy multiple copies of the same DVD when the content on the discs is identical. And anyone dumb enough to do that deserves to get $100+ lifted from them.

    I guess the next day we'll see Mr Brown versions on eBay for $$$$

    I'm just happy they're coming out with the SE DVD. Do you really think anyone will buy all 5 covers?

    According to the posts over at HTF, a few people are planning to buy all 5. That's what the company is hoping for, people that are collectors, that have to have 1 of everything.

    Well, they are pretty foolish! Why not just print off the other covers if they mean that much? There's scans of DVD covers on the web . . . . swipe one and put in in an empty case.

    Do you think they might want to give us the extra discs ? ? ?

    I hate to say it JarJar, and normally I really hate these things. But I'm a HUGE Reservoir Dogs fan and I'll probably buy the Mr. Brown (Tarantino) and the Mr. White (Keitel) covers. I happen to really fancy those two characters.

    I went with the Brown cover and I'm glad I did, because the actual DVD cover has the other four covers on the front split into fourths. So if I ever pine for what the other covers looked like, I can simply look at the DVD cover....

    ROLLO!
