ANCHORAGE (KTUU) – Following an offer the store couldn’t refuse, a truckload of bizarre Russell Crowe memorabilia has landed in its new Anchorage home – the Debarr Road Blockbuster. Customers will soon be able to come and marvel at real pieces of cinematic history.
Store manager Kevin Daymude said the staff of the Blockbuster video store, which claimed the goods, is now working to unpack and properly display the odd items sent by John Oliver and HBO.
The items, notably including a jockstrap worn by Russell Crowe, were promised in a segment on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” hosted by Oliver. In that segment, Oliver cited KTUU’s reporting on the closure of multiple Alaska Blockbuster locations, leaving just one store open in Anchorage on Debarr Road.
