Iowa Man Turns Basement into a Video Rental Store


Starting tomorrow, here in L.A., movie theaters will be allowed to open up to half capacity, but some people don't even go to the movies anymore, because some people spent their lockdown turning their basements into a movie rental store. Instead of getting divorced, Brian Hogan and his wife Erin from Des Moines, Iowa joined us to explain themselves.

    At first...I was thinking "this is nuts!" Then, when Brian said that he had 300 copies of 'Forest Gump,' I thought...well, yeah, that makes sense... [you can tell that the guy has a sense of humor...and that the wife is a very patient, easygoing person]

    They made fun in a 'roast' kind of way which is cool. He clearly understood - before the show even took an interest - that it was a decidedly eccentric thing to do, and it's nice he has a great deadpan sense of humour about it. And the wife is just as cool.

    He’s not joking. I’m one of his best friends… I see your hairdresser - he is also a barber. He owns a wacky, popular barbershop in Des Moines. At some point within the past couple years he started inviting all of his customers to find and bring in copies of Forrest Gump Tapes as some sort of incentive program (what the prize is I have no idea) and they play Forrest Gump almost every day in the barbershop. It’s called Franklin Barber Shop. :)

Btw, I hope someone gives these two a show, they’re awesome and hilarious. Erin is freakin’ adorable, too btw.
