The Padres have disguised their new giant HD scoreboard to look like their old busted low-def scoreboard that was in use from 2004-2014. It's genius!

But the gag looks even better from this angle:

See how the buildings in the background almost match up as if the background is transparent? I had a similar suggestion for them last month as evidenced below. So in a way this was all my idea. Look maybe it's not my credit to take, but I'll just hold on to it for now.
@PetcoPark You should take a picture of the scenery behind the board so when it's shown on the screen it looks like it's transparent.— Gaslamp Ball (@gaslampball) March 13, 2015
Here's video of the big reveal. You can tell by the crowd reaction that it looked amazing in person.
