Man builds video store in basement
See the original posting on Boing Boing
This man replicated a 1990s video rental store in their basement, right down to giant bags of Sour Patch candy, foamboard drop ceiling and a bulky CRT television set. And, of course, thousands upon thousands of VHS cases–all real, with tapes. It looks so exactly like a real 1990s video rental store that you could shoot an indie movie set in a 1990s video rental store in it. The only “missed” detail is one you wouldn’t want to replicate anyway: half the store being dozens if not hundreds of copies of the latest blockbuster.
I just want to just take a second to thank everyone here for all of your extremely kind comments. It really makes my day each and every time I see someone new comment on how this video took them back to their childhood and reminded them of the fond memories of the 80s and 90s.
This project was something that evolved very gradually over time by just accumulating tapes over the years one at a time. When I made this tour video, I had no idea that so many people would find it cool or interesting. Its mind blowing to me how many views this video of my basement has and continues to get.
Thank you for checking out the video and supporting Nostalgia Video! Im truly grateful!
