About 6 months to a year ago, I stumbled across this interesting little find at an estate sale. What appeared to be a media kit for the opening of Universal Studios in Orlando. I bought it for 8 bucks (a steal, I think) and promptly forgot about it. Today, after finding it in a closet, I thought I’d share my first reaction of opening it up. Here’s the film.

    • Oh cool! It’s nice to know what was actually in there. In terms of selling it, I just sold mine on eBay for $60. So you might do well, especially if you still have the video.
