Man builds video rental store in his basement

If you are as old as me, you have to remember going to the video rental store with friends to pick out a movie to watch. We would spend pat of our evening walking around the store, looking at all the boxes to try and find a movies everybody could agree upon. The stores were usually set up with different sections (Comedy, Drama, Horror, ..) to help, but it was always a chore to find that one movie that nobody had seen before, and all wanted to see. Sometimes we ended up choosing 2 or 3 different movies, since the popular ones already rented. Some times it could take hours and it would be 9:00 PM or 10:00 PM by the time we got home and started watching the movie

Thought of this as I watched a segment on Jimmy Kimmel. (Skip to the 7:00 minute mark)

This guy must of loved the whole video store experience because he decided to build his own video store in his basement during the covid-19 Pandemic. He did a great job, and it looks like he has a better selection the our local store ever had.

Like when he said he has over 50 copies of Forrest Gump. Also liked that he set up a section just for Jimmy Kimmel.

Good for him as It always amazes me of the creative things people can do when they have a passion for something.
