“… sell something dumb like a T-shirt, for around $40.00, and throw in the DVD for free.”
Nice try, but any lawyer worth their lunch money would pick that apart in no time flat because to get the DVD, you had to buy the shirt ergo you still drew a percentage of the sale off the DVD. That’s how merchants get away with that ‘buy one get one free’ thing. If it was ‘free’ you wouldn’t have to ‘buy one’ first! The price of the ‘free’ one is calculated into the price of the one you bought.
Your first suggestion is the best. There’s way too much cheap royalty-free music out there to choose from unless you’re willing to pony up a hefty permission fee and royalties to use popular songs.
