"That sounds pretty de-luxe."

Many Homestar Runner toons and DVDs make fun of cut-rate DVDs by glorifying interactive menus. While most DVDs offer additional features like director commentaries and "making of" featurettes, cheap DVDs and DVDs of movies that didn't make enough money to make such featurettes have to get by with advertising interactive menus as a bonus feature. In the JengaJam Interview, Mike and Matt have remarked that it should be illegal.
