Number one with an ass-knife
As of today, Severance is the number one top selling DVD in the country. Yes, it went straight in as a new entry at number one, top of the charts, the official DVD charts.
Thank you so much to everyone who bought it, borrowed it, watched it, liked it, talked about it, mentioned it, linked to it, thought about it, walked near it, sniffed it, touched it, or otherwise had any kind of influence on it at all - you all made it hit the top spot. You rock!
It's fab to be number one, I can't quite believe it. It even hit number 3 in the play.com sales chart, and got as high as 7 at Amazon, which is amazing considering that that includes all their sales and pre-orders. It is SO weird seeing it in shops and windows. I saw it in WHSmith's today, and felt slightly detached from myself for a moment, and thought everyone would suddenly stop and stare at me (they didn't, thankfully). It's the strangest feeling. Once again, thank you all for the support, and for getting the movie out there. It's so cool to get feedback and nice messages from so many people, I'm really proud that you all liked the movie enough to let me know. All this, just because I felt like killing some yuppies one day...
