Actually, it's not just DVDs. I can't tell you how many times I have bought a drink because it was served with a light up ice cube or bought a plate of ribs because it was served on a trashcan lid.
But back to DVDs, I listened to the Movie Brain Rot podcast (and I know, I plugged it the other day too... but i'ts a good show.)
The most recent episode was all about clever posters and catchy DVD box art.
In response, I made a video to send to Jim Desantis, and thought I would share it here:
Here are some others I own that DIDN'T make the video:
The "Big Lebowski" bowling ball:
The "Total Recall" Mars shaped tin:
The "Basic Instinct" faux ice case with ice pick (pen).
NOTE: I just realized the last 3 gimmick packages were ALL of films made by director Paul Verhoeven! Coincidence? Most likely!
Here is the "Wicker Man" wooden box:
And finally the first season of "Coach" in a DVD set that's pretending to be a notebook... that's pretending to be a football:
I actually own that coach set, but I listed it with the others I don't own... because I am ashamed I bought it. Oddly enough, I am not ashamed I bought "Showgirls".
