    I know people have been doing that for years.. this is the first time I've heard of a lawsuit because of that (common) prank.


    I personally would have intercut scenes from Nekromantik...But thats just me.

    I have considered starting an anti-blockbuster movement, based in sabotage, for years. It would be funny if you got 1000 people to do this and Blockbuster got sued everytime!

    I used to subscribe to "Video Review" magazine back around 1987 and there was a little story in there about someone recording homemade porn at the end of new releases at one video store- movie tapes would have about 5 minutes or so of blank tape without even a signal at the very end, and yes I'm such a geek I always watched all the black at the end of a tape and even checked all the way to the end.
    Anyways, the participants' faces were never shown, but they could recognize a local hotel where it was shot. No customers ever watched far enough to see it, but the store's owner found them when inspecting them at his store.
    Serves him right for not supporting laserdisc rentals! [​IMG]
