World-Weary Man Bitterly Rents Mercury Rising
October 7, 1998 |
BELLINGHAM, WA–Forced to choose a Saturday-evening
entertainment option, exhausted consumer Glenn Waters bitterly rented
the 1998 film Mercury Rising. "I suppose this will do," said the
spiritually drained Waters, selecting the Bruce Willis action thriller
from the "New Releases" section of a Bellingham-area Blockbuster Video.
"The cars will explode, the bombs will be narrowly defused, and I will
be entertained. I have little choice in the matter." In the past, Waters
has bitterly chosen such entertainment options as Dr. Dolittle, The Rock, Veronica's Closet and Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing."
