Simply 17 very funny tweets from the brilliant Last Blockbuster parody account

Blockbuster video stores were the gateway drug to Netflix, which was also a physical rental service at one time, unlike the streaming service we know now.

Despite relaunching online to compete with the rapidly expanding Netflix, Blockbuster’s business model couldn’t keep up and the company went bust in 2010 – although one store remains open in Oregon, run by a franchisee.

However, not being within commuting distance of Oregon, we’re more concerned with a completely different “last blockbuster”, only this one is on Twitter, and it’s very funny.

Here’s a selection of our favourite tweets from the – *whispers* – parody account, but we highly recommend you check them out for yourself too.
