Petco Park has disguised new HD scoreboard as old scoreboard

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.

Here's video of the big reveal.  You can tell by the crowd reaction that it looked amazing in person.
