wtf is with… monster cable?

$89 for a 4′ HDMI cable that is worth $2? I bought two 10′ HDMI cables with the same specs for less than $10 including shipping. They’ve worked flawlessly. But hey, I have to give their marketing department credit for actually convincing people that they need to spend the extra $87 for the Monster Brand. I’m just surprised that there are enough people willing to drop a Benjamin for a single cable in the world to keep them going.  I would think that people who are that into a/v equipment would take two seconds to do a little research online and learn the truth.
