Is There Anyone Stupid Enough To Believe That This HDMI Cable Has Anti-Virus Protection?

This “Xbox 360 Elite HDMI cable” should be just like any other HDMI cable in the planet, right? Wrong! According to the box, it’s a “100 per cent Mylar” double shield 1.3c grade cable with anti-virus protection to reduce virus noises and to obtain perfect image transmission”. Yes, really.

Now, forget about the fact that this company should get sued into hell for fantasy claims that make no sense whatsoever. That’s obvious. What I really — REALLY — want to know is if there is any people in the world so stupidly stupid as to believe that a virus may attack your video cables and cause noise.

These crooks probably went to the Monster Cable marketing school. [Thanks Jorge!]
