How do I turn the website's video background off?

In a little bit of a video game easter egg, you can see (and hear) video from various arcade games of yesteryear.  

Upon visiting every page of our website, you will see a TV-shaped icon that appears midscreen, then slides away after 10 seconds.  You can return it to the screen simply by moving your mouse away from the center column.  It will appear on the side of the window that your mouse is on, and always nearby the mouse cursor.

If you click on the TV icon, videos of arcade classics will randomly play in the background and sound is muted. Clicking on the speaker icon allows you to hear the audio as well.

When sound and video are active, the icon looks like this:

To turn video and audio off, simply click on the TV icon that displays "ON".  The display will then look like this:

This setting will retain as your navigate through the site, as it is saved to a browser cookie.  Clearing the site cookies will reset to default presentation (video and audio off).
