Can you guess 2008’s fastest-selling DVD?

Hint: It was the 2007 movie Alvin and the Chipmunks, which sold 2.6 million copies yesterday in its DVD debut (Variety). FOX also is promoting the DVD with a live touring stage show in shopping malls. And no, David Cross is not on that tour. Last night, in fact, Cross performed at Ochi’s Lounge, the basement lounge of Comix comedy club in Manhattan for Andres du Bouchet’s new monthly show. In case you or Patton Oswalt or anyone else were curious. But back to Alvin, Simon and Theodore…wow! Then again, I had no idea that movie managed to tally more than $216 million at the box office!
