  • Animation by ro-tv.com/ch/UCZj7QQVYbWAVeQdCLBXZiyw

    • Very intense animated emotions. It's take a but to get used to but I like it.

    • Do more of these

    • Bro ur gatekeeping literally everyone knows what blockbuster is

    • Not buying Netflix is just a big question on why they didnt get bought out and they could have changed things if they started the redbox

    • I miss video rental stores...

  • I worked for one of the last Blockbusters in Oregon for a few years until they closed down. It was a great place to work right up until Dish Network brought them out before closing and the whole focus went from trying to talk to people about movies to trying to sell them TV while they're there for something completely different. Sad times, but yeah a lack of foresight really killed them in the end. Also, thank you for pronouncing Oregon correctly.

  • Didnt they have Blockbuster On Demand kiosks outside of other retailers? I remember there was a war between them and Redbox which I always thought killed Blockbuster for good. There was just more Redboxes and now thats all we have for renting purposes anymore.

  • WHO WAS THIS VIDEO SPONSORED BY?!!!?!

  • 10:37 Oh you're not going to animate this part Mr Animator 🔥🐐🍩

  • 7:16 TMW just the tip is weird lookin

  • Thanks for putting us on the map fam™ -- Bend, OR

  • big rips to enron

  • Fuck Blockbuster!!! They would refuse to rent certain movies at all. I don't take lightly to censorship! Rumor had it that Blockbuster would edit some of the movies they had on their shelves. This simply was not true. However, they would receive special cuts of movies from the studios . . . basically, pre-edited versions for all of the "family-friendly" stores, and to make that bullshit even worse, nowhere was there any kind of notification that their version of the movie had been altered from the original theatrical release! I firmly believe one should spend their money in local businesses whenever possible. Spending your money locally, rather than handing it over to some big corporation, will insure that more of your money stays within your community. Keeping more of your money within your community benefits not only yourself, but everyone else in the community. Even though you may no longer have that money, having spent it locally means somebody else in your community has more money now to spend. Eventually, this money will come back to you. One can think of it as a method to avoid creating a trade deficit, and all of the problems associated with it. When it comes to renting physical copies of movies, I always preferred the local businesses . . . no matter which city I was residing in at that moment. Many of the businesses had free popcorn to snack upon while perusing their selection. Most of these businesses also had unique decors or even themes which were much more stimulating and comforting than the plain, dull industrial look of Blockbuster! I recall one store which had refrigerators from the 1950s which were utilized to display some of the movies. All of these local, indie businesses had a much better (not always larger) selection than Blockbuster, some of them even specialized in specific genres of film. Fuck Blockbuster, they got exactly what they deserved!!!

  • Enron did some illegal shit

  • They partnered with Enron heh my accounting class gave me a heads up with were this is going

  • Only thing is, physical game’s install faster somehow.

  • Charlie: has random dream about blockbuster Also Charlie: *need to tell the world why they failed and I need to do it now*

  • Lets play a game! What did your local Blockbuster corpse get turned into? Mine's a mattress store.

  • brine

  • fun video

  • I miss renting games

  • Were you the one who animated this

  • Netflix happened it doesn't take a genius to figure that out. What a stupid video

  • I participated in both blockbuster AND netflix

  • Blockbuster should've done this: rent a movie on the DVD subscription and if you return the DVD to a local blockbuster you can rent two movies free. So that way you get more customers in your stores and on your subscription. Plus double the late fee income :)

  • fuckin family video sells cbd products

  • I remember renting n64 games from blockbuster. Fuck

  • best part of this video 14:47

  • This will be GameStop I’m 5-10 years. 😞

  • I’m at the ripe old age of 36 and can remember when Blockbuster exploded into the Midwest, in particular Metro Detroit because everything was all Mom and Pop places (which were just as good). I remember feeling like Blockbuster was the Kmart of movies, so much bigger with so many copies of the new movies you wanted and Family Video still exists by me and even sell CBD oil which is pretty odd but if that’s what it take’s for them to stay in business then have at it. Go and support your video stores if u have any!! They’re like noble Monks preserving a interactive time capsule and they need your $$$!!!

  • what's with grade a animations

  • The live action sences are like a damn 4 Kids dub.Its obviously edited

  • Brick and mortar is better if you don't know what want to get or you want it now, for that reason I hope they stick around.

  • Still got my laminated blockbuster card

  • "They partnered with Enron." Ooof.

  • 3:06 Thats my exact birthday, what the hell?

  • Ew, an animated youtube vid

  • CHARLIE, you can't blame Blockbuster for their deal with *ENRON* failing. The people at Enron went to jail for the rest of their lives for what they did with the Enron business. No one could have made that partnership work. This was written like you don't know about the Enron scandal, I highly recommend you look that up. I guarantee you that was the real major tipping point for blockbuster failing, it was Enron's fault.

  • It brings a tear to my eye to think of blocks buster

  • You'd think they would just add movie delivery and pickup from those stores as a buffer between rental and streaming...they'd be able to bring you a movie and get it back without you having to wait for it to arrive in the mail.

  • Family Video

  • I want to hear Charlie tell more failing company/business stories o.o

  • There's a Family Video near my house that's only still in existence because they started selling CBD oil.

  • I remember their was a blockbuster Redbox machine in the 99cent store was really awkward

  • Cool use of animation!

  • I still have my blockbuster "ticket" (had your account number on it)

  • Family Video gang where you at

  • I remember going to Blockbuster with the flu as a kid and I puked and shit my pants right before exiting the store. Can't do that on Netflix.

  • I remember when Netflix delivered. And then Prime delivered also.

  • I remember being a kid and being excited when a Netflix movie came in the mail, my dad would order them all the time. He would also rent from family video and get me sailo moon vhs tapes ❤️ we have a shit ton of burnt cds from all the movies he rented lol

  • john wick is at it again with them video essays

  • i loved blockbuster :(

  • There's a fortnite Blockbuster mythe

  • Do something similar for toys r us

  • Unfortunately blockbuster in the very distant future does not make money the future of blockbuster is destroyed

  • i remember a blockbuster in my town up into the early 2010s, then it got Thanos snapped one day and I have no idea what happened.

  • To this day I like to lie to zoomers about video rental stores I even made up a story about turf wars between video rental stores Never forget the Hollywood video vs block buster battle

  • Cut the hair pls man

  • well as sad as this is, on the bright side now i don't have to return my 3D edition of Sharkboy and Lavagirl

  • Is penguinz0 now a story time animator 🧐🤔

  • New plan on September 21st everyone has to raid the last Blockbuster

    • September 20th: Raid Area 51 September 21st: Raid Blockbuster September 22nd: Raid RO-tv HQ to put Pewdiepie in RO-tv rewind and make it not suck September 23rd: Raid Vegas for its Gambling Profits

  • LOL

  • I live near the last blockbuster

  • Ah yes...Blockbuster. Kids today will never understand how it was like to go out into the harsh cruel world on a Friday night to pick up a copy of a movie and a pizza and then drive back home. These days now its all made so simple with the click of a button or two and bam...there is your movie. : /

  • Cr1tikal: has a dream Also cr1tikal: vido

  • My old local Blockbuster was turned into a fucking Denny’s lmao

  • Oregon is truly mythical

  • As someone who just turned nineteen, were there no librarys to rent stuff at when Blockbuster was still in the large?

  • Thanks, Kanye. Very cool.

  • Did you guys know BLOCKBUSTER DIDNT DIE BECAUSE OF NOT UNDERSTANDING THE MARKET THEY DIED BECAUSE THEY UNDERESTIMATED THE SPEED AT WHICH IT WAS CHANGING

  • I remember renting games from blockbuster when I was young as shit. The days

  • Netflix is going to shit now isn't it?

  • I'm wondering if the one in Bend is gonna live on. Like, people will make trips there just to see it, but who knows how long the novelty would last. Eventually the three dudes who work there are gonna run outta money if people stop going there, else they make it a tourist trap with blockbuster branding and dvds + games you can buy.

  • DO RADIO SHAACCKKKK

  • Fond memories of blockbusters growing up, the last time I ever went was when I collected my pre-order of GTA V 😥

  • love u blockbuster always and forever

  • Audio is out of sync

  • Lmao nice try Charlie, we all know yo u have a shrine dedicated to Blockbuster in your closet.

  • It’s high key Enrons fault, fucking lies on their finances

  • Netflix is kind of dying now too

  • What a well done video. I still drive by where my Blockbuster used to be and it really makes me sad. It was an event to go get a movie and snacks. 😒

  • Google maps says there are two operational Blockbusters, both in Oregon. One in Bend and one in Salem. The last two of their species.

  • their are actually 2 left the other is in australia
