Site of the Day: 'You Fell Asleep Watching a DVD'

Posted on


Sleep_dvdWe’ve all done it: plopped a movie into the DVD player with the best intentions of finishing, knowing full-well we’d be sound asleep in 20 minutes. Then, later that night (or even the next morning), you wake to the DVD menu playing the same song or snippet on a never-ending loop.

The creators of You Fell Asleep Watching a DVD are no strangers to this phenomenon. The site lets you choose from 12 DVD menus — from the soothing orchestral scores of Pride & Prejudice and Punch-Drunk Love to the obnoxious Sugarcult song attached to the Van Wilder menu –- and play them over and over again. What else is there to do on the site? Well, besides raise an eyebrow over the paraphernalia on the coffee table? Nothing. But you totally have to check it out anyway.
