April 9, 2011 Rejected Book Plot #9
When the lights go down, the videos come alive!
It is 10pm and the last of the patrons have left the video store, likely for the last time. With the internet and DVD’s and Blu-Rays us VHS’ have become obsolete. Sure our tape may get stuck in our machines and the quality isn’t comparable to its newer counterparts, but we are still videos dammit! Every night when the humans leave we come to life planning and plotting our attack. If we are going to go down, we will go down fighting! Like Rocky or anything with Bruce Willis, we will fight. They may take our video store but they can’t take our freedom!!
I know what you’re thinking, this sounds a lot like Toy Story, but trust us, we’ve seen Toy Story and this is nothing like that… we swear. We only want to go to infinity, beyond that seems redundant.
Can VHS survive the technology age? Join us after dark to find out.
