If you’re a fan of our podcast LRM Ranks It (available wherever you get podcasts from and the links at the bottom of this article) then you’ll know I am a huge fan of Kevin Smith and his View Askewniverse. I have been watching his films since 1999 when I first saw Dogma and I am a huge fan of his talking shows and Q & A shows.
No one is a bigger fan of Kevin Smith than himself though. The self-proclaimed oralist is known for speaking on his movies for hours on end. Well, yesterday he had a prime reason to talk about his creations as it was the 25th anniversary of Clerks being released in NYC and LA.
25 yrs ago today, CLERKS debuted at the @AngelikaNewYork in NYC & the @laemmle Sunset 5 in L.A. So to celebrate a quarter of a century in movies, the #RebootRoadshow Tour starts tonight in N.J.! I think it’s now safe to say I *am* supposed to be here today. #JayAndSilentBobReboot pic.twitter.com/VeGo98gLJ9

The picture appears to be an order form from RST Video, the same store Smith worked at to help him fund and film Clerks. Smith originally applied to work at the video store, but often found himself next door behind the counter of the Quick Stop. His experiences and dreams collided together in 1995 and gave us the characters of Dante, Randal, and Jay and Silent Bob. Our lives, and his, have never been the same.
Smith is currently on a road trip to bring his latest film, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, to fans directly. Smith has mentioned he is working on Clerks 3 and possibly Mallrats 2 after the successful production of his current film.
