Welcome to Steve’s Kinkoes introduces the eponymous fictional copy shop in the short film, Steve's Kinkoes. The video is inspired by the visual attitude and insincerity of the corporate '80s and '90s. It is paradoxically pleasant but disturbing. Dilapidated and fraught with glitches, it reflects its own absurd promises. The video plays as the protagonist enters the store to make copies of his missing cat poster, fearing repercussion from his abusive girlfriend. He is then presented with an enticing offer for those who fear the unknown: a source for escapism where customers can make copies 24/7—forever.
