Well, welcome to your very own DVD of me, DVB, and Mind Control. If you werent expecting me and thought you were buying Reginald Perrin, then press eject now before you begin vomiting. Otherwise, please, please ensure that you are sitting in an extreme level of comfort, preferably in pre-worn slippers and, I trust, with your extended family around you. If you have seen the film Signs and would like to wear the pointy tin foil hats now would be a good time to put them on you cant be too careful. Well, pphhh, goodness me, er, its been a meteoric rise over these last years. The money and sex are exhausting and I have you the viewer to thank. Thanks. Weve put together some of the pieces from the specials and series in glistening digital format, each pixel hand picked and gently polished and brought to you in wide-sound, surround-screen enjoyment. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as Ill enjoy the royalties from this, which is enormously. If you dont like it and HMV wont take it back because youve got sticky all over it then the disc makes an excellent beer coaster or wheels for a space truck or can be immense fun just putting it on your finger and [waggling it], like that. But I hope you do like it. When I first started developing these techniques I had no idea that they were going to prove at all popular and for all my nancing about and staring Im actually really excited to have a DVD out and cant wait to go and find it in Discount Books & Puzzles next to the Dizzie Gillespie CD box sets and disappointing erotica. I hope you like it and if you do, please go and buy another one.

Marlon Brando
