VHS for SAlE

Oh, Rimpy, how do you find so many improperly used lowercase L's?  Rimpy explains for this classic SAlE sample:

There was supposed to be an A at the beginning of the first line, but it must have fallen off. The other side of the sign said basically the same thing, plus the name of the business (ALL THE BEST VIDEO), with all uppercase Ls in their proper form. I guess this depleted their store of uppercase Ls, and they had to resort to the old uppercase I for L trick for the other side.
