Clearly, what Gothamist wants is a TV with DVD player that is shaped like a panda. And obviously the DVD player would have to be disguised as a stalk of bamboo. No word on when these TVs (there's also a penguin version) will be available, but let's just say that Gothamist will pre-buying them wherever and whenever they pop up. Our offices may walk the fine line between plain and dangerously panda-filled, but it's the risk we take. [Via reader Greg Z and Gizmodo]
