Stupid Ideas in consumer electronics

Who was the one who came up with the following ideas?:

Blinking VCR display if time is not set up?

Super loud audio noise level if TV does not detect a valid video input (solvable with a rudimentary AGC circuit)?

Huge amount of useless overlay information (like battery level, what the hell?) on video cameras? Example (Note: this example contains violence and scenes of fighting).
