Shocking Videos is a bootlegger; Something Weird Video is not.

Shocking Videos sells "The Turkish Wizard of Oz" which is a dupe of a
dupe of _Aysecik ve Sihirli Cüceler Rüalar Ülkesinde_ acquired from
Uludag Video in Brooklyn, so it's a bootleg of a bootleg with the first
bootlegger's watermark (in addition to the obvious loss of a reel of
footage).

"The progress of a love-story is tedious to all those who are not
concerned, and I leave such themes to the hack novel-writers, and the
young boarding-school misses for whom they write."--William Makepeace
Thackeray, _Barry Lyndon_.
