Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Affected chains are to be monitored for appearances of SCP-XXXX. Cooperating stores will allow foundation employees access before opening hours. In addition, store employees will provide advance notice of changes to individual store hours. Noncompliant stores will be accquired through government authority or force. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be removed from their shelves without direct skin contact.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon affecting multiple chain stores, where anomalous VHS tapes designated SCP-XXXX-1 appear overnight. Attempts to discern a pattern by which SCP-XXXX chooses its stores have met with some success.

SCP-XXXX-1 will not materialize on shelves which:

  • Are being observed at the time SCP-XXXX-1 would appear
  • Are completely stocked so that there is no way SCP-XXXX-1 would fit without removing other products
  • Are located in the █████ branch of ████████ Video. (See Addendum)
