Top Spot of the Week: Frys.com's "Pod"
A gamer is seated on the couch, transfixed on a video game. He tells his roommate, who's just come home from work, that a package came for him. The roomie doesn't look too pleased that the box--a delivery order from Frys.com (the online site of regional retailer Fry's Electronics)--has been opened, but a smile comes to his face when he looks at the contents. He then exits out of sight into the adjoining room. Suddenly all the power goes out and a bright light flashes. The roommate disappears. Turns out the component from Frys.com was the missing piece to a time travel machine. An end tag identifies the sponsor, Frys.com, accompanied by the slogan, "Welcome home, tech heads."
