    Wal-Mart has a new commercial to tout there awesome selection of DVD's. It's typical Wal-Mart style with a pimply stock boy spoutin' the lingo all about their "rad" features and "cool" picture quality.
    Well, one of the titles they highlight by showing it on the monitors in the background is none other than Forrest Gump, but it's pan and scan! The commercial makes no mention of VHS; it's all about DVD, baby.
    Whatever happened to truth in advertising?

    The truth comes shining in through in that ad: Wal-Mart's undying dedication to pan & scan!
