The Twitter Account for "the Last Blockbuster" Is Comedy Gold


There was a time when Blockbuster Video was the name for in-home entertainment. Within the first month of a major movie's home video release, walls would be covered with VHS tapes and DVDs. Countless people would rush to video stores to avoid paying late fees. Young friends and siblings would pool together their change to rent a video game they would beast on for the entire weekend.

Then Netflix happened.

It's not like Blockbuster didn't have the opportunity to still be in the game: in one of the biggest mistakes in corporate history (next to Sears' decision to not partner with Amazon) the company decided against buying Netflix and having the streaming platform take control of the online portion of their movie subscriptions/rentals.

Now Netflix is not only a content streaming juggernaut, but they're a major TV/film production studio.
