A woman with the username @Thevideobunker posted a video on social media site TikTok. In the video, the woman displayed her video rental store in the basement created by her husband during the lockdown. The entrance to the rental store had an “Open” sign in the window which was covered in a bright neon pink light, while the wall around the window was made of brick.
Inside the store there were passages of shelves filled with different films. And the posters and memorabilia on the wall made the whole shop even more special. There were yellow signs on the floor with gender names that helped orient customers. There was even a reception for making payments and getting snacks.
The main area of the rental store had plenty of racks with DVDs, Blu-ray discs, and lots of the occasional movie tapes that the wife’s husband had bought at random.
There was also a “viewing room” somewhere in the store that had TV screens, two comfortable recliners, walls of VHS tapes, and a few old-fashioned game consoles.
The woman confessed that in her early forties last year, the family had to shut down their local video. On top of that, her husband had plenty of time on his hands due to the pandemic and the eternal lockdown. He felt he needed a project he could finish at home to keep himself busy. He also had plans in mind. So he decided to build his video rental store rather than refurnish kitchen cabinets and other cupboards.
The video went viral and gained nearly 4 million views. People poured their love into the video because they really liked the concept of the store. One user said it was the coolest thing he has ever seen in his life. A second person said it was literally his dream and he wanted to do the exact same thing. Another comment read “Oh, nostalgia!” Someone humorously asked if there were other employees in the store.
