  • Animation by cs-tv.org/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 never had a Blockbuster nearby, I always lived near Hollywood Video stores. Only time I went to a Blockbuster was one two towns away because I REALLY wanted a certain movie HV didn't have. I don't even remember what the movie was. Kinda weird really...Lived in two states way across from each other. Both places no Blockbuster, just Hollywood. They also went down in 2010, that was just the death year of video rental I suppose.

  • holy fuck leafy hit puberty

  • Yep, badgering my dad for a coffee crisp, wanting to rent a game but dad refusing because he didn't understand the system.

  • I worked at Blockbuster in 1999 and it was AIDS. I'm glad they're dead.

  • Woah woah critikal blackbustercritic already went through this topic remember?

  • I still owe Blockbuster my copy of Micheal Jackson The Experience for Wii

  • Actually Enron had a big scandal and the company shut down. So that’s it didn’t work the first time

  • Just like that. Charlies channel becomes an animation.

  • They should keep the last one open as a museum where you walk in and you can see it's full history from the start, all the way to it's downfall

  • Shit critical you made me cry at the near end...

  • Redbox is the new blockbuster. I enjoy redbox

  • I saw that there was 999 dislikes and I couldn't give up my chance to be 1k exactly. I like the video and helped my sister when I was a kid at a movie gallery

  • I knew someone who worked at Blockbuster corporate in the early 2000's... they quit shortly after because blockbuster would never implement new ideas. They died because they failed to listen to those who knew better.

  • I fuckin miss blockbuster man

  • I didn’t know there were any blockbusters left

  • Before Netflix and chill it was Blockbuster and cock-thruster

  • I hope Blockbuster makes a colossal comeback all because of their last remaining store in Oregan.

  • Charlie this gave me a great idea: Blockbuster 2.

  • I wont let our last Blockbuster die, Bend was hometown. Might have to move back! lol

  • I love shooting smack behind Blockbuster!

  • Blockbuster failed?! 😳

  • I went to Target the other day and I saw there's a Blockbuster tabletop game that was made fairly recently. Maybe they're not dead after all?

  • I have managed to enslave one cockroach. I named him jeremy. Should have not entered my room.

  • nothing will ever feel the same as going to blockbuster to try out a new game or movie

  • I could just keep watching this video over and over for some reason. I think it's the animation, his narration, and the way how he executes the vid in general.

  • It still doesn't make sense that the one in Alaska, a place with little to no internet, wouldn't be the last one standing.

  • I like the animations penguinz0

  • Hey guys FYI GameStop is next

  • Blockbuster let me experience Mass Effect, Oblivion, Assassins Creed and Borderlands back when I couldn't just ask for a new fucking game every couple weeks. I will forever be thankful for Blockbusters influence on my life.

  • Sad uwu

  • this...was a really good video

  • The enron fiber optics gig would have been insanely ahead of its time. Too ahead, possibly too expensive for the time. Don't think it would have been too good because of the cost and ppl resisting such a jarring change. Its a huge leap from store rental to streaming, in 99 no less.

  • When you try to act older than you are... Motherfuck! You don't know what blockbuster is! shut the fuck up.

  • Lil Caesars took over my local Blockbuster. Fuck Lil Caesars!

  • So many feels with this video. Blockbuster was my first job. And besides only making 5.15 an hour, it was by far my favorite job of all time. Rest easy my friend, you will always be in our hearts and our memories.

  • News flash, Redbox killed Blockbuster not Netflix

  • i loved the animation collab

  • I wouldn't mind if this became more of your channel

  • I live 30 minutes outside of bend T I M E T O G E T M E A G A M E A N D M O V I E

  • 1:41 GEEZ that's uh, that's some imagery for me...

  • Charlie grows an inch of hair every time he says "turbo" holy cow his hair is long

  • Blockbuster? nah family home video my guy. Pretty much Blockbuster but all the DVDs are scratched and all the employees were shit, and the video games weree 10 generations late.

  • I didn’t need this information, but thanks anyways

  • Blockbuster should expand in africa or somewhere

  • I think the problem is in the late 90s the infrastructure wasn’t there for what Enron wanted, fiber is expensive to run...

  • I thought it was redbox that killed them I remember getting cardboard ads for dvds at a closing blockbuster when I was little ;-;

  • Just want you to know, I really fucking enjoyed this video.

  • i had the same dream like two months ago

  • Haha nice

  • Blockbuster was the king. How about Hollywood video though, another lost relic.

  • Its easier and faster to pirate a movie/game then go out of your house and rent one thats a factor too

  • Netflix didn’t kill Blockbuster. The late fees bullshit did the trick

  • I think maybe Charlie doesn't know what happened to Enron hahaha

  • In all Seriousness, i would love more of these, semi serious interesting discussion type things. Keep it up man, and great video. :)

  • You should talk about the failure of toys r us, it both made me happy and broke my heart.

  • Considering the current oversaturation of streaming services, platform exclusive content, and the rise in piracy because of that, do you think we could benefit from a revival of the video rental system? The closest thing that really exists is dvd collections in libraries, which are free, but often incomplete (series wise).

  • "They just dipped the tip of their dick in the water" Uh Cr1t, there are better ways to check your bath water, mate.

  • Step 1. Go to Google Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdailypro Step 3. Enjoy! Blockbuster When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending. Be careful of love. It'll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong. Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new. Our lives were now worlds apart, separated by time, circumstance, and the unbridgeable chasm of money.

  • R.I.P. Blockbuster. It was because of you that my mom went and rented me Metal Gear Solid for the playstation. Since that time MGS has become my favorite franchise. Thank you, Blockbuster. 😞😌

  • blockbuster was a huge part of my childhood, the smell alone is pretty rad

  • 7:12 "they partnered with Enron" OH! NO WONDER! XD

  • wow companyman is PG13 now, hmm wasn't expecting that

  • Bro I really dont want gamestop to go because I've had so many nice conversations at gamestop and I love physical games because I want to actually hold the games I buy.

  • "Slowly getting thanos snapped away" Then it's not a snap

  • Netflix is trash

  • That blockbuster is actually permanently closed according to google maps in Oregon

    • It doesn't say that. It's open right now. It says "Hours: Closes soon: 9PM ⋅ Opens 10:30AM Wed"

  • U should do this animation more often

  • I remember riding my 10 speed down to the Blockbuster to rent Alien 3. I was 13 years old.

  • At least Oregon got recognized for something

  • It didn't fail. Blockbuster was extremely successful.

    • But it could have ruled the world by now.

  • 6:02 Oh my God, it's Paul Finch..

  • When people give this video a dislike its cause they lost their jobs when blockbuster went bankrupt. Kind of sad

  • This was an awesome video, Charlie. Please post more like these.

  • If only CBD was around then. It's the only thing Family Video sells now.

  • I unfortunately wasn't able to witness the downfall of Blockbuster cuz I was in Germany during that time (mum got stationed at an air base). The only thing we could rely on for movie rentals was Netflix, so, yeah. Hit me hard going back to the U.S. and finding out Blockbuster was dead thanks in part to Netflix lol.

  • When was the last time anyone has even SEEN a BlockBuster? The absolute last time I saw one was all the way back in 2004. Speaking of companies that were popular in the '90s and early 2000s, you ought to cover Sears, Toys R Us, Hollywood Home Video, and Circuit City next.

  • You’re bald under that hat, aren’t you?

  • Blockbuster?! More like WALLERbuster!

  • *Company* *man* *wants* *to* *know* *your* *location*
