Rental Return S2 EP4: Video Land Maniacs

Season 2 of Rental Return – Tales From the Video Store continues with “Video Land Maniacs.” This episode is all about the craziest customer interactions our Video Heroes had to deal with as well as regular customers that were quirky or they tried to avoid. Billy tells about the time Quentin Tarantino and Sophia Coppola visited the store. Alan and Joe talk about some customers they suspected were dubbing rental tapes. You’ll also hear some of the most ridiculous things that customers would do or complain about like paying late fees. William remembers a customer who just wanted to find a copy of Bossin’ Up starring Snoop Dogg. Finally, each of our heroes recollect particular days at the store that are just ingrained in their memories. Bob and Brandon remember how 9/11 impacted their jobs.

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.
