Remember my PS3 unboxing video? The WSJ wrote an article about unboxing videos and featured my video (with a color photo in the newspaper). Unfortunately, you need to be a paid subscriber to read it online, but you can watch this video report for free and see the scans below.

Shame you didn't get the "pencil-drawn face" image that so many WSJ articles contain.

Congrats!

Cheapy, why can't you be on the front page on a periodical I read, like Juggs, Guns and Ammo, or Scientific American?

J/K. Congrats!

It might be less than legal, but how about some screenies, or even an archived version of the page?

My office hangs the front page of the WSJ in the men's restroom because they think it makes us look "sofisticated." So be proud in knowing that people will be staring at you while urinating all day! Congrats! ;)

I don't think that's all they're gonna be doing while staring at CheapyD in a bathroom. ;)

Now G4 will be calling back anytime about "uh, that Man in Japan reality show you mentioned", but this time you'll be the one passing. Let them drown in The Jamie Kennedy Xperiment reruns and adverts featuring doughy pasty-faces pretending that they can even program their TiVo, let alone a game.

At least the tagline doesn't say something like:

Serial killer David Abrams (seen here in a Youtube video) has been on the run from authorities since his 14th victim was discovered last summer.

Awesome! Now a nationwide audience can watch how unexcited you are opening a $600 game system!

J/K, Gratz Cheapy! Here's to being one step closer to Internet riches.

BTW, how come you didn't do an unboxing video of your Wii purchase? Maybe you can get on the Today show next...

Probably because he was one of the first people to have a PS3 in his home. Where as, thousands of people in the US already had a Wii.

Anyway, Congratulations Cheapy!

Someone needs to buy like 800 of these papers and sell them on CAG.

Fun little article. I'm actually kinda disappointed i saw it here first. It would have been much more entertaining to receive my WSJ next week and stumble upon it :)

This is good news and all, but it just adds more credence to to the idea of changing the site name. This just screams for a free website plug, but can you ever see them saying "Ass" on Good Morning America? They certainly seem to have a problem with it over at Bloomberg...

It really does seem like our name is holding us back, at least on the free publicity side of things. I think we should have an official site-wide meeting (read: contest) in order to determine a new name for CAG.

Of course, if they do end up saying "ass" on GMA...
