This is a pretty solid VCR collection. Oh who am I kidding. That is a VERY solid VCR collection.
And THAT is why single women want to meet European men.
Seriously! How else will I watch my copy of “The Peanut Butter Solution?”
Watch out for The Fright!
“Hey, there sexy woman. You are wanting to come back to my place and I am showing you the VCRs? Seriously, is not strange euphemism — I have big collection. Come, I show you them.”
I am going to be very surprised if there are any comments that pertain to what happens in the last 4 minutes of this video.
Is it that he starts to play different movies on each of the VCRs and the sound syncs up so that the result is a perfect performance of Beethoven’s 9th?
I had to stop it when I realized that the theme from Police Academy had started playing in the background.
I’m not even going to try and understand why I immediately recognized the theme from Police Academy. That scared me more than the weird collector guy.
Oh shit, that reminds me! I have to return some videotapes. #waytooeasy

I would just like to share that when I was a kid I broke my parent’s VCR by stuffing a tortilla inside of it. Now that I think about it, a tortilla looks a lot like a DVD, so maybe I was just really prescient.
His mom has a similar video, but all of her VCRs are blinking “12:00… 12:00… 12:00… 12:00″…
MOMS, YOU GUYS!
A VCR story for you. I was having dinner with my parents last night, and I asked my mom if they had been watching Boardwalk Empire. She said that they hadn’t and then she preceded to ask me if I would tape it on my VCR which I don’t own. Also, you should know that she has DVR, but she doesn’t know how to used it.
My VCR story:
My grandparents randomly decided to put a jacuzzi in the backyard (OK, sure). They also randomly proclaimed Daily Jacuzzi Time to be 7:00 – 7:30 PST. Unfortunately this is also the same time that Wheel of Fortune airs, which (obviously) can’t be missed. Fortunately, grandpa had a plan, and it involved the VCR. Pop in a tape, and record Wheel during DJT. It’s that easy! Then get out and watch it at 7:30, ’cause who watches Jeopardy! anyway, right?
When I asked them the obvious question of why not just schedule DJT for 7:30 when Jeopardy! was on and avoid having to set the VCR, they just stared at me like I was crazy. I guess I didn’t get the memo re: the official proclamation of DJT. (I also found out after his death that grandpa was a little more than into the whiskey/vicodin in those days, unbeknownst to naive teenage me – this explains a lot of things, actually.)
Listening to this was like talking to my boyfriends 2 year old niece.
“What do you want? You want to play the recorder? You want your car? Yes. That is a vcr. That is a nice vcr you have. What? I can’t understand you. What?” and after a couple minutes I bring this video over to the video’s mother to see if she can decipher what the hell he’s talking about.
This dude must have a RIDIC collection of Buffy tapes….
and next week on Hoarders…
Is this one of those mock trailers like they had in Grindhouse? Because I’m definitely getting a Happy Jack Part 2 vibe here.
He wants to collect more, but the space in his house is Betamax-ed out.
I’ll show myself out.
you nailed that joke with lazer-disc precision.
i’ll also be be leaving.
*inserts sega-saturn joke*
*lets the door hit himself on the ass on the way out*
Hi-Definitely won’t downvote you, Sir.
I can’t wait to see his next collection video of the women he keeps chained to radiators in his basement.
As with Hot Cats before this, I feel I must point out that my wife is from Finland. I feel some marital obligation to find links that will reaffirm Finland as not being a complete laughingstock. This may take a while.
No, wait, that just makes things worse.
Finland?! Does she have a brother?
Here, this is sort of cool, right?
It will take forever, I can tell you that as a fact. (I’m from Finland, yikes.)
That is a pretty solid haircut. Oh who am I kidding. That is a VERY solid haircut.
Yes, that it is my VCR collection. What have you?
Basically, I have one VHS tape (a copy of Ghostbusters I taped off of HBO in 1987) mounted on top of my TV. If I want to watch my movie, I take one of my VCRs off the shelf and put it on top of the tape.
Maybe it is YOUR world that is upside down.

To be fair, Panasonic IS best mechanics.
He needs to hook up with this guy Bruce from my neighborhood:
The 7:34 mark is the highlight. “Super Asshole Benson” I think that’s what he’s trying to say.
“That is my best video Super HVC, SHVC” is what he’s saing. Whatever that means.
For a VCR Collector, he doesn’t seem to know his collection very well.
