'ere, I've got these DVDs, goin' real cheap. Just as good as the real thing ! All profits to a terrorist organisation of your choice.

"we" in this is supposedly the general public, but the tone of the ad is just a little too desperate. The (not-very-)sub-text is "we've lost bucketloads of money 'cos everyone's switched to digital. Please pay us for something ... anything ... help ?!")
