People who got the freebie might have been surprised to find out it was simply a copy of this commercial.

Just in case your first copy breaks, it's good to have an emergency backup for your weekly Sinbad parties.

That's pretty much what your video store used to pay for tapes.

That's a great deal if it comes with 8 litres of Vodka... just enough to make Sinbad funny.

Back then VHS tapes were over 0, nowadays you can get new releases for and people are so entitled they pirate movies because skipping the previews is too much inconvenience for them.

The DVD's you buy let you skip the previews?

Depends of the dvd, some let you do it, others wont.

Just because Sinbad is now still doesn't mean it's worth it.

In college I worked at a video store during the last days of VHS, and I can tell you that even as of 2003-4, some VHS copies still cost around 0 to 0 each. Especially if the tapes were out of print. See, video stores are required to buy tapes with special licensing or some such on them, containing certain previews. They aren't the same tapes you get at Wal-Mart. This was theoretically why stores had to pay so damn much for each tape.

It was always a thrill for me when someone lost a tape and they came to the store, expecting to pay around to replace it, and I'd have to tell them they owe 0 for the lost copy of Curly Sue. Then I'd laugh and laugh and laugh.

I believe new release DVD are cheaper for video stores, but still pretty bad. You might still pay - per disc, depending on the movie and the distributor.

Yes but those prices come with a rental license, right? This looks like it was being sold direct to customers, and I'm pretty sure this was well after commercial VHS tapes dropped to or whatever.

If only 15 people are going to buy it you might as well get what you can.

Is it possible that this ad was actually targeting rental stores? Why else would they be shilling two copies of the same tape?
