Blockbuster video, you fucks!
January 30, 2005
Ok, I'm sure most of you have seen the new
commercials. Blockbuster is advertising "No more late
fees!" like it's the second coming of Christ or
something. They're pumping this shit up and getting
people all excited like "yeah, we can keep the movie and
not have to pay a late fee, Blockbuster rules!"
And then there's the truth....
My sister was late returning a video to Blockbuster last
week and she was lucky enough to find out just how
their nice new "No late fees" policy works. Oh, they're
totally right, there really aren't any more late fees...
Now, if you're late, they just charge you the full rental
You fucking cheap-ass lying sons of bitches! Hey, it's
not that I mind this policy; actually I think it's a damn
good idea. You get charged to re-rent it and can keep
the movie for an extra X number of days. It's a
good policy, in my opinion. So, what's the problem then
if I like it? The problem is that these fucks are lauding
their great new policy as if it's something it's not.
They're lying to the sheepish little masses who're just
gonna believe all the bullshit they spew just because
they fucking CAN!
Their whole ad campaign is just a great big fucking
half-truth. You can't call it an outright lie, cuz they
ARE telling the truth that there's no more late fees, but
it isn't the WHOLE truth that consumers deserve! No,
the new policy isn't the problem, it's the misleading and
dishonest advertising that pisses me the fuck off!
I'm thinking it's time to go rent a few movies with cash
and instruct my bank to block all charges from
Blockbuster... I'll just keep those movies and never go
to Blockbuster again - the FUCKS! Hey, if they can lie
to me, I can fucking steal from them. Fuck those
bastards, there's a bunch of movies I want and I'm
about to get 'em for like $4 each - Mwahahahaha!
I encourage everyone else to follow my lead. Fuck them
over and maybe they'll get the message: It is not
acceptable to mislead your customers!
