NEW Left-Handed DVD!

April 01, 2010

For Immediate Release—The Darius Goes West Organization is very excited to announce its newest innovation—a complete redesign of the case surrounding the Darius Goes West DVD. The project is called “Darius Goes Southpaw.”

As you can see in the picture above, every part of the DVD packaging has been rotated 180 degrees. The overhaul is intended to make DGW DVDs more accessible to people around the Globe who favor the use of their left-hand.

“We’re really excited about this,” says says the engineer of the new case, Allison Firor. “There are nearly 50 million left-handed people in the United States alone. If only 5% of them purchased this new product then $2,500,000 would be raised for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research.”

A left-handed beta-tester of the product, Ric White (pictured above) had this to say: “A friend of mine sent me the DVD about a year ago. It was the old version. I planned to watch it, but it just kinda sat on my coffee table as the months dragged on. You see, I’m left-handed. Sure, I could open the way that the majority of people out there would open it {right to left), but I’d be much more likely to open it if the case opened left to right.

“We’re all about access,” says Darius Weems, the star of the award-winning documentary. “The more buildings people can get into, the better. The more DVDs people can get into, the better.” When asked why a supporter couldn’t simply turn the case over before attempting to open it, he simply replied “Nobody likes to read upside-down. Duh.”

The new product is expected to be released on Saturday, the same day as Apple’s iPad. “The release coinciding with the iPad was a strategic decision,” says Logan Smalley, the director Darius Goes West/Southpaw. “We’re not exactly sure what the purpose of the iPad is, but we respect the ergonomics of the device. We are sure that Darius Goes Southpaw will get some major press coverage, so we figured we give a similarly innovative product a lift. It’s all about sharing the love at DGW. We’re happy to help out the folks at Apple who care about accessibility as much as we do.”

“I’m just happy that President Obama will stop texting me all the time asking for a left-handed DVD,” said Darius. Obama is one of seven left-handers to reach the highest office in the land. Darius Goes Southpaw also marks and increased opportunity for George Bush Snr. and Bill Clinton to go West with Darius, the Crew, and all the awesome DGW supporters out there!
