Thanks to my prior co-worker / friend Luke Slendebroek for posting this: Video Rental Stores’ Bizarre Survival Strategy.

1. Apparently video rental stores are offering tanning beds as an incentive for drawing in more crowds.

2. They are seeking legal action against Redbox kiosks using things like “wheelchair accessibility” as the excuse.

3. Making short movies including: using military tanks to run over competitors’ property.

4. Buying wholesale videos and then re-selling them at lower prices, justifying the process by calling the videos “previously viewed.”

What else will they come up with? What do you think?
