Hollywood Picks The Brains Of Video Store Clerks
from the can-they-recommend-something-better? dept
With Hollywood so focused on remaking old movies and turning old TV shows into cheesy blockbusters, they’re increasingly trying to pick the brains of the lowly video store clerk. The video store clerks complain that the movie execs (making many times their salary) know next to nothing about movies, and yet, they expect video store clerks to help them out for nothing (or a basket of leftover muffins).

Holy crap, after being forced to watch a sprint ad before I got redirected hopelessly away from that article I will try to never buy anything from sprint, or hopefully never go to salon.com again, lol. Is salon always that bad?

That’s nothing. Last week the free day pass required you to start the process of selecting a personal ad. It showed me a brady bunch box with nine pictures and made me click one and go to her page before I could get to the article.
I’m married, does that count as cheating?

I believe Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) was a video store clerk who used his expertise to actually MAKE a movie.
Maybe the article points this out, but the previous posts scared me away from even trying to read it.

Heh. Yes, it lists Tarantino and Kevin Smith (Clerks) as video store clerks who made movies – but says most video store clerks have no such ambitions. They just like watching movies and talking about movies.

Haha, sorry I scared some people away. Turns out that “intersticial” whatever ad was kinda random, you just have to click the link a few times.
