Iowa Man Turns Basement into a Video Rental Store
Starting tomorrow, here in L.A., movie theaters will be allowed to open up to half capacity, but some people don't even go to the movies anymore, because some people spent their lockdown turning their basements into a movie rental store. Instead of getting divorced, Brian Hogan and his wife Erin from Des Moines, Iowa joined us to explain themselves.

    At first...I was thinking "this is nuts!" Then, when Brian said that he had 300 copies of 'Forest Gump,' I thought...well, yeah, that makes sense... [you can tell that the guy has a sense of humor...and that the wife is a very patient, easygoing person]

    Along with being a great friend, barber, and borderline hoarder. He is also a great songwriter, Google his band; The Horseshoe Spatulas. Also, check out his wonderfully silly Acting work on ISnets! Search "Two Men and a Backpack short film" or "Trigger Words short film"

    The Forest Gump collection is very real. It’s stacked up in the corner of his barbershop. Franklin Barbershop in Des Moines is a great place to get your hair cut. I’m actually going in there today to work on my mullet.

      @Chad Lewis Everyone in Iowa has that movie. Lol I live in MN and my farm neighbor actually built a diamond in a small part of his field after the movie came out. Haha!

      They made fun in a 'roast' kind of way which is cool. He clearly understood - before the show even took an interest - that it was a decidedly eccentric thing to do, and it's nice he has a great deadpan sense of humour about it. And the wife is just as cool.

    I'm confused. She says it was "our" step daughter's bedroom. Whose child is this? If the step daughter is both of their's then who is real parent? Were they in a trouple? More concerned about the step daughter than them displaying videos in their basement. She's a person!

      His daughter. My stepdaughter. Nerves on my part, nothing more.

    • RowRedRound

      She went away to college. He referred to her as his daughter. She referred to her as our step daughter. Not difficult to grasp.

      He’s not joking. I’m one of his best friends… I see your hairdresser - he is also a barber. He owns a wacky, popular barbershop in Des Moines. At some point within the past couple years he started inviting all of his customers to find and bring in copies of Forrest Gump Tapes as some sort of incentive program (what the prize is I have no idea) and they play Forrest Gump almost every day in the barbershop. It’s called Franklin Barber Shop. :)

    When I first started watching this, I thought this guy was nuts. The more I watched it though, I love this. He’s creating his own video store museum of sorts. He really did a great job. Btw, I hope someone gives these two a show, they’re awesome and hilarious. Erin is freakin’ adorable, too btw.
