Matrix fans wait all night for the red HD pill
Photos of high-def madness in London.
LONDON--Last week, wethat HMV Oxford Street was the place to go this morning if you were a Matrix fan and wanted to pick up a free HD DVD player (the ) with your purchase of the box set.
We were expecting this to be a popular promotion, but we were blown away by exactly how many people were prepared to queue all night in a filthy alley just off Oxford Street in order to snag a free player.
The queue was full at 5 a.m., and then it was just a matter of the fans standing around for another 3 hours before they were able to part with their 60 pounds and walk away with a big, high-definition grin on their faces. ( for more.)
