Finally, a company has the guts to bring together America’s too favorite pastimes. Eating fast food and enjoying a sedentary lifestyle. In a test at about 100 Denver outlets, McDonald’s will feature DVD rental vending machines.

Restaurant-goers will be able to choose from a list of top releases and can return the movies to any participating McDonald’s. The service is being powered by a company called DVDPlay and movies will rent for a buck a night. If a rental is out more than 25 nights, you own it.

A few of the expected hits:

A Filet-O-Fish Called Wanda

John Turturro in Mac

The French Fry Connection

The English Heart Patient

The Deep Fry

The Apple Pie Gang

Mulholland Drive-Thru

Body Doubling

Concentration is important!
