Oy!  I'm sure you're probably right Joel.  Sounds like we'll end up bombarded with QR and NFC codes in all forms of video advertising.  Embed a 10% off coupon in a national television ad?  No problem.  Free trial signups?  Easy.  Heck, you could probably use these for a geocaching style game by embedding clues to the next code location.

On the plus side, I imagine these codes will make it much easier to rickroll folks too!
