Here are the instructions to assemble the disposable cardboard display stand for the Mr. & Mrs. Smith DVD our store is selling. A few weeks ago the word came down from corporate that the usual rolling racks that we have always used to sell product were going away for good. If a vendor wants to sell cookies or DVD’s then they must supply a display stand for it.
The old racks were esthetically displeasing, but the cardboard stands sag after a day or two. The DVD’s hold up well enough but a stand of aresol air fresheners can’t handle the weight.
On the subjects of racks, wanna bet it’s only because of the anticipated box office draw of the one carried by Angelina Jolie that Mr. & Mrs. Smith got made? Wow, was that a dull film. It definately won the Meh of the Week award. I can imagine the pitch meeting for it:
“Okay, it’s like Fun With Dick and Jane meets the War of the Roses.”
“Uh…Angelina Jolie wears a latex hooker outfit and tight sweaters. And Brad Pitt looks scruffy and unwashed, too.”
If only the plot was not as rickety as a cardboard stand it would have been a better movie.
