I SABOTAGED THE NARNIA DISPLAY
« on: April 07, 2006, 09:50:58 pm »
Okay, well it was really more like I "added" to it but I definitely gave it a different face.  A small bit of revolution, but a little bit of subversion can go a loooong way.  Besides, when the store leaves the Brokeback stand-up in the back room, what other options are there?  ???

PS --if you're seeing this without pics then i screwed up and standby...

The Rules of BBM Club: (a.k.a. Project NDS - Narnia Display Sabotage)

#1 - The first rule of BBM Club is, you do not talk about BBM Club.

#2 - The second rule of BBM Club is, you DO NOT talk about BBM Club.

#3 - If someone says stop, throw a BBM DVD at them, knock over the Narnia display and run.

#4 - Two guys/girls to a display.

#5 - One display at a time.

#6 - No shirts, no shoes. (LOL, I thought I'd keep that original Fight Club rule in 'cause I like it  ;D)

#7 - Narnia Display Sabotages will go on as long as they have to.

#8 - If this is your first night at BBM Club, you have to sabotage a display.


PS - Damn you, Chanterais, you posted while I was typing.  ;D Great minds think alike  ;)

Mandy, has to be a multi-prong attack.  Find a suburban enclave (preferably near an institution of worship) and hit Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Circuit City, Target and the rest.  Better yet, hide some of the Narnia stock in well-disguised parts of the store (like in washer/dryer basin displays or behind Wal-Mart's expensive towel line) so sales will fall as flat as those awful CGI effects in the final reel.  Doubt Aslan can "rise" once again from the inside of a locked portable freezer.  :'(

Argh!  rt you are creating some AWESOME threads lately my friend.  I just about died laughing while I was reading this one.  I am so going to start a branch of BBM Club in Toronto.  Watch out Wal-Mart, Best Buy, HMV, Future Shop, etc....

Nicole,

Something has come over me in the last few days -- I dunno -- I'm feeling a little less literate and a little bit unleashed.  I started a thread about LOVE and it turned into something about raunchy sex.  Who am I to complain? 

Time to have fun again! We're in a new home and all this grieving over the lost Oscar is DONE.  The film is now here, on DVD, in our hands, and we're taking back its rightful spot at the top!!!!

Great job!

And while I take no joy in defending Best Buy, I do have to say the store I visited the other day did have a huge BBM display right at the very front of the store.   But I pledge to follow your lead in any other stores I find where that's not the case. :)

So, I did my part today.  I was out walking around the city with some friends and we went to HMV (I bought Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins for those interested, lol).  Anyhow, there was a large shelf divided down the middle with one half devoted to Narnia and the other to BBM.  Well, when I was done, there were no visible Narnia's!  I moved about 20 dvds over to cover them all.  I took a picture with my friends camera phone, so hopefully she can email it to me and I'll post it.  She thought I was insane btw.  She kept saying that I had gone over to the "bad place", lol.

At Borders there was a section of new releases. The top shelf had three stacks of BBM next to three stacks of Narnia. I covered all the Narnia, then went on to the regular DVD shelves. The Crash DVDs were near BBM (alphabetical order) so I went ahead and covered those too. No camera phone, couldn't take a picture. Haha, it would have never occured to me to do that if it weren't for this thread.

Wow rtprod this seriously sounds like something I would do! I actually remember having a conversation with someone on the old board about dressing up as a ninja and putting stickers on all the BBM DVDs that said "The true best picture of 2005". Then the person got scared and never spoke to me again....I wonder if that person is on here?
A couple of days ago when I went into Silverscreen I accidently knocked over some Crash DVDs and then ran out of the shop.
But anyway I think me and Kelda should do this when it comes out in the UK. You up for a challenge K?

Let the Crappy DVD covering comence!

Yes I am a major Rilo Kiley fan.  And I completely agree with you - the JL solo cd is great (I really love her cover of Handle Me With Care w/ Ben Gibbard an Conor Oberst!) but RK is superior.  I love, love, love her voice.  Have you heard "Teenage Love Song" by RK?  It's one of my favourites and hardly anyone I know has heard it!

We have a chain of grocery stores out here in California called Vons and they are huge major stores...they carry everything.  Well right up front where you check out it his shelve of new release DVD's and Narnia, Chicken Little and Crash were all right up FRONT and BBM, Capote and GN&GL was behind them so my son Dave & I, bold as brass, >:D stood there for 5 minutes rearrranging the display so BBM, Capote and GN&GL were up front and everything else was pushed back.  My younger son kept look out for the manager.  One woman stopped and said "that looks better already"  We cracked up!  Sorry no fancy photo feature on my phones..but thought you might like to know we struck our blow as well.

LOL you are hilarious Vic! I love your crazy antics! :D :-*

Alright K it is on! You take the north and I will take the south! We need to imploy people to take the East and the West! LOL No I was just thinking I would go round to all the stores in my area and do some serious coverage. Hey maybe I will go to Milton Keynes and cover all of the shops there aswel!.....Oh the posibilities! ;D

I am with you about the ninja suits though, black isn't really my colour. Now sky-blue ninja suits I could get on with!

Yes I am a major Rilo Kiley fan.  And I completely agree with you - the JL solo cd is great (I really love her cover of Handle Me With Care w/ Ben Gibbard an Conor Oberst!) but RK is superior.  I love, love, love her voice.  Have you heard "Teenage Love Song" by RK?  It's one of my favourites and hardly anyone I know has heard it!

yes!  i have their first album with teenage love song on it.  my favorite jenny solo track is born secular.  the melodies are so sad!  she has such a unique voice. 

and get back on topic a bit, they had bbm at dominicks (which is what safeway is called in the midwest) but no narnia displays to sabotage so i just put the few copies they had in front of some others  :(  and i finally got my dvd in the mail yesterday!

Oh, good plan Reanna. That will be MUCH more effective than just covering up some DVDs on the shelf!  ;D

I went back to Borders today to see if my damage was still done. The Narnia DVDs were showing again, so I covered them back up. Two of the three Crash stacks was still covered by BBM (!) so I covered the third back up. Then I noticed that one of the stacks I had previously covered had two BBMs in front, and I had only put one in front. So I went ahead and put two BBMs in front of each Crash. Haha, I guess they didn't sell too many Crash DVDs this weekend!  :laugh:

I thought this was strange: I got my DVD from Target and all they had was the cover with the silver border. The DVDs they had at Borders didn't have it. Did anyone ever find out why we have different DVD covers?

note to self: talk to James in Wales and get him to cover there and contact family in london to do the covering down there! :laugh:

Went into Circuit City today and it was everything Brokeback.. Huge poster in front of the store.  Big display in front and by the DVD's.. It did my heart good.
I love that they didn't cower down like Walmart.

that's hilarious! I've been doing the same thing everytime I go into a Target. I go check out the dvd display to see how our BBM is doing. Depending on which store I go into, it's either doing very well or no business at all. So I do what any BBM fanatic would do. I take a couple of BBM dvds and spread them all over the store. LOL. I even put some near the cashier line so people are forced to look at it while waiting. I actually had some teenage girls pick one up and buy it! lol. Her friend tried to tell her to wait and just rent it, but she bought it.  I also did this at Border's. lol. I left one on a table near the line and this woman kept looking at it. It was as if she was afraid to pick it up and read it or something. She kept looking at it, then turning away....then looking at it...then away. It was actually kind of funny. It was some "high class entertainment" as Ennis would say. LOL

They had a big display at the Barnes and Noble section for the DVD,  and in the checkout, they had the CD for sale, so they seem like progressive company.

I wonder what section of the video store this is going to be put in when it's out of the "New Release" section.  ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE WESTERN genre?   ;D

Well you can guess what kind of display they have at the Tower Records in the Castro district in San Francisco!  A whole end unit with everything Brokeback.  DVD, soundtrack, books, magazines with any of the BBM gang on the cover, everything! ;D

Hey Becky - James here reporting for duty!
I'll take Wales and the Midlands if you're doing all of the south, lol!
Sorry I haven't been in contact for ages or posting for AGESSS, but since I got home I tend to avoid my parent's dial-up internet connection as it mostly frustrates me. Its annoying that I'm missing out on all the Bettermost fun though - can't wait til I'm back in Notts with lovely broadband!

Uhhh.... Ray and me can handle Australia easy enough...  Its a big ass country n'all but since we're both in Brisbane, its time to call in a few favours..  I got contacts in Melbourne and Canberra.  Ray is gonna have to come through with the goods on contacts in Sydney - that'll be a major coup for Operation BetterMost.  Either way, Brisbane will be "cleaned" thoroughly upon the release date WHICH WE STILL DON'T HAVE YET.
