The Last Surviving Blockbuster Store Is On Twitter And It’s Hysterical

Blockbuster on Twitter

Today’s youth doesn’t know how good they have got it.. Back in the day, if we wanted to watch a movie, we’d have to get in our car and drive to a Blockbuster Video, walk through the aisles looking for something decent to watch, and then pay $4.99 to rent it. And if we didn’t return it in time, we’d get hit with LATE FEES!

Blockbuster was an absolute giant that had over 9000 stores at it’s peak. But they failed to get with the times (“What’s the Internet?”), and a little startup called Netflix came around and put the company out of business.

Now most of us believed that the last Blockbuster stores closed back in 2014. But a Twitter account claiming to be the last surviving Blockbuster store just recently surfaced, and they’ve posting some hilarious tweets that have us in tears..

Guess they’re still bitter over the fact that Blockbuster’s big boss turned down an offer to acquire Netflix and have them handle Blockbuster’s online efforts. Whoops!
 

Yeah, Redbox swooping in with $0.99 rentals was another nail in the coffin for the overpriced Blockbuster.
 

Yikes, things are sounding pretty desperate over there. Crazy, considering the company made $800 million in late fees in 2000!
 

Here’s hoping!
