"That sounds pretty de‑luxe."

From the Late Nite JengaJam interview:

MIKE: DVDs do still advertise "interactive menus," though, which should be illegal.
MATT: Of course it's interactive! "Interactive menu", all that means is that you have to press up or down and hit enter.

Interactive menus are a primary feature of DVDs, allowing the viewer to select specific scenes, bonus features, or adjust settings. Although initially a large factor in the adoption of DVD as a standard over VHS, menus became so commonplace that mainstream video releases quickly stopped specifying their inclusion. However, for many years lower-quality DVDs would continue to list "interactive menus" among their bonus features to pad out an unimpressive list of featurettes. This practice is parodied in several Homestar Runner toons and DVDs that champion the inclusion of interactive menus in a tongue-in-cheek manner.
