Throwback Ad Thursday: InuYasha Movie 2
This advertisement promised customers that with the $24.98 purchase price of InuYasha: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass DVD, they'd get an exclusive trading card. But, on the bottom of the ad, in 'squint-real-hard-and-you'll see it text,' it reads: "While supplies last. Limited to first 50,000 copies." So, if you were one of those lucky 50,000, you likely received an InuYasha trading card. I did when I picked my copy up at Best Buy back in the day, but the card certainly wasn't anything special. However, for the third InuYasha movie Best Buy had a great exclusive going on, where early copies came with a free CD soundtrack from the film. I picked a copy up the Tuesday it hit shelves and still have the CD, which was included inside the DVD case, packaged in its own cardboard sleeve.
