(Fark)   I'm thinking of leaving sticky notes for people in returned Redbox movies. What would you write on them?   ( divider line

Draw a comic, but one panel at a time. Soon, people will rent every movie in that redbox to see how the comic ends and redbox will see a huge growth in video rentals and will figure out it was you and will give you a cut of the money.

"Dear Red, If you're reading this, you've gotten out. And if you've come this far, maybe you're willing to come a little further. You remember the name of the town, don't you? I could use a good man to help me get my project on wheels. I'll keep an eye out for you and the chessboard ready. Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping that this letter finds you, and finds you well. Your friend, Andy Dufresne"

A DVD for Redbox pretty much always stays in the same geographical area, right? I mean, you're not going to rent one and then take it across state lines, right?

I think the awesomest thing you could do is put the first clue to a treasure hunt inside a kid's movie. Make it in an easy-to-break code. Then, you can scatter a trail of clues around the neighborhood of the Redbox, so that someone can continue following the clues until eventually they find the treasure. Maybe build in a ghost story about how the clues are coming from a dead kid or something like that.

The treasure should be something awesome that kids will love - like $20 in quarters or a BB gun.

My brothers and I would have gone apeshiate for something like that when we were kids.

I am looking forward to the Fark thread about how an uptight suburban mom was so outraged at the ribald sticky note on the Veggie Tales DVD that she got Redbox to track down who had last rented it, resulting in a misdemeanor charge of public lewdness or making a terroristic threat.
