Blockbuster in store trailer videos

Post by Dudley » Fri Mar 06, 2020 9:55 am

I used to work for Blockbuster in the mid-2000s, we had an instore "TV" channel called BBTV showing trailers and adverts for Blockbuster related items.  Obviously back then this wasn't broadcast, it was DVDs sent to store monthly.

Sorting out a storage unit this week I came across one of those DVDs, from February 2005.  So I've uploaded all 5 weeks trailer reels as well as the supporting material such as the "Store is closing" video and an internal loss prevention advice reel.  I can't find any of these on YouTube so it's an interesting archive.

These are neat, definitely used to hear these whilst I was in BB. My bro and I used to joke that they explained so much of the story that it was now unnecessary to watch the film, The Core springs to mind as one of these.

LOL, great to watch. Just seeing the trailer for Dodgeball makes me want to watch it again!

Thanks, although this is quite the kind of thing I usually post!

This isn't quite the kind of thing that really isn't preserved though, couldn't find any of these on YouTube, much less the "private" bits the public were never supposed to see.
