The author writes:

LaserDisc was introduced in 1978 and was basically the predecessor to DVD. Despite superior audiovisual quality to its competitors, it was largely a failure (outside of Southeast Asia). When I heard its alternate/original name, Disco-Vision, this popped into my head immediately.

Original strips: 2003-06-21 (main strip), 2003-06-17 and 2003-06-20 (additional elements). LaserDisc image from Wikipedia.
