Season 2 of Rental Return – Tales From the Video Store continues with “Pushing Play!” In Episode 1, we introduced our Video Heroes including their first experiences with renting VHS tapes and what their local video stores were like. Now in Episode 2, you’ll get a deeper knowledge of why our Heroes wanted to work at a video rental store. You’ll get to hear how they got the job which for Bryan was a lucky second call after his initial voicemail was deleted. You’ll hear what their training process was like which Brandon says included a Blockbuster training video hosted by actress Andrea Barber who played Kimmy Gibbler on Full House. And then finally, hear what kind of co-workers they had to interact with which in Axel’s case included an impressive crew who had encyclopedic knowledge of specific genres.
Our “Video Heroes” for Season 2 include Mark DeWitt (@Mark_DeWitt), Brian B. (@InnerDemonsGR), Joe Corey (@YourCanadianGF), Matthew Corey (@rollerdogNC), Bob O’Rourke (@constrictionpix), William Lanham (@deadly_dinosaur), Colin Fitzpatrick, Alan Smith, W. Axel Foley aka Billy Foley, and Brandon Meyers.
