Sort of Like Netflix, But with VHS Tapes

Now here's a gloriously nutty idea! Some guy in the States has fully embraced the primitive charms of the VHS and is offering a somewhat legally questionable service where he'll send you a copy of any movie you want on VHS for FREE! And he'll include a drawing on the label too. The FAQ assures us it's not some "sick joke", though a sticky on the homepage says that he's recently been bombarded by requests and may not be able to meet demand. Ha! Though I'm not convinced this novelty will around for too long, I like the idea that nearly a whole generation of movies have not been released on VHS and that people out there would want to watch them on that format.
