Blockbuster Video Is Not Dead…And Its Twitter Is Kind Of Funny

What was once an iconic symbol of the '90s that quickly became a casualty of ever-advancing technology, Blockbuster Video stores are no more. We'll, almost no more…turns out that there's a few left, and one in particular is saying: "Not dead yet!"

Not only has this store survived the Netflix killing spree, but they've take to Twitter and may be one of the funniest accounts on the social media site.

The Last Blockbuster told the Daily Dot:

"This account is actually run by a few of us at the store. We're a small operation, so we take turns running social media, working the registers, and cleaning out the return drop box. A lot of people seem to think it's a trash receptacle even though we taped up a sign that says it's for movies and games only.

It feels special to be the last remaining store of a such a culturally important franchise. But sometimes it feels like we're the only ones who give a shit about watching films the way they were meant to be watched: on pieces of round plastic, slid into a machine that connects to your home television set."

The location of this store is vague, which might lead some to believe it doesn't actually exist…but let's be honest — even if it was around the corner from your house, you probably wouldn't go. So relax and enjoy the funny tweets…like some of them below.
