It may come as a surprise, but there’s still a few Blockbusters left in the world. One of them happens to be in south Texas, where Twitter user Javier Zuniga lives. He and his brother, who has autism, were loyal customers until it finally shut down on Sunday, an event which upset Zuniga’s brother.
So in what may be the greatest parenting decision this year, their parents decided to create a Blockbuster at home, stocked with their son’s favorite movies.

People found the whole thing pretty adorable.
This is amazing. I work at KDVR/KWGN in Denver. May our company Tribune Media have permission to use this photo on TV/online in perpetuity?
