Jumanji VHS Videocassette

This is a bootlegged VHS copy of the movie Jumanji, released in 1996 by Columbia-Tristar Home Video. Jumanji, based on the book of the same title, was an extremely popular film earning over $250 million dollars in the domestic box office. The ability to easily copy VHS tapes led to a proliferation of counterfeit videocassettes in the marketplace, and the wide-spread consumer adoption of VHS technology made this a lucrative trade for criminal enterprises.
