Default XFX Lost a Limited Edition ATI 5970 Graphics Card...Oh Wait, I Just Got Suckered By Marketing

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1271963508.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>I just received the above message via email, and I've never quite seen anything like this before - XFX must feel pretty strongly about losing this card to email every customer they have in their database (I haven't bought an XFX card in a couple of years). The last line of the message made me chuckle; what inconvenience is it to me that XFX lost a graphics card?</p><p>Oh wait...just before I was about to his submit on this post, I clicked on the message, and was taken <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dWziA_u5OU" target="_blank">to this YouTube video</a>. Apparently this is all part of a "Gamertainment Campaign" just like that last tiny line of text says. Nicely done XFX, you tricked me - now where's the unsubscribe button...</p>

Did you also notice that the person responsible will be persecuted by law and not prosecuted?
I thought that was illegal!
