Ryan Beitz has set himself what has to be one of the most impossibly pointless goals ever conceived.
It's not uncommon to hear of people who collect memorabilia, DVDs, action figures and other such things, but 26-year-old Ryan Beitz has turned the conventional idea of collecting on its head by setting out to collect every single copy of the VHS tape release of the 1994 Keanu Reeves film 'Speed'.
This is actually brilliant if he ever plans on starting a (strange and playful) business or writing a book or anything. He's already in the news and will gather a large following attracted to his quirky goal.
