The D-TV Circus.

As all of you already know, on June 12th, stations all over the country will switch from analog to digital. This of course means that if you have an analog tv set, you won't be able to watch TV unless you get a digital converter box. All over the net, there have been PSA's to inform people about the transition. These videos have been made to show the simplicity of switching from analog to digital. Like this one:

I did also come across a parody of one of these videos from the Spike Feresten Show on FOX.

While it's humorous and seems to mock the old lady in the video, you could argue the video is an advocate for the elderly, who may not be familiar with technology the way a lot of younger people are. It's worth thinking about as something that plays such a huge role in our lives goes through a drastic transformation.
