It's not viral, it's from The Onion. But yeah, how they were able to film it is beyond me.

Maybe someone took a page from Britney, Paris, and Lohan and thought even bad advertising is good.

The Onion is a satirical/spoof/fake news site - pretty much everything is made up there.

Probably filmed in a franchise store. I can't see corporate approving this otherwise. Nonetheless, good stuff

I can't see why not. If you read my previous post you'll understand why I think it's excellent advertising for Blockbuster!

Did BB change the POS finally? It's been a few years now for me, but I didn't recognize the screen at all when they showed the few frames you could see it. There was even a red message window or something that popped up for a second it looked like.

Or is this evidence that not all is as it seems?

Same POS as there has been since the early 90s... no changes, but they are updateing the systems with new flat screens and computers. Blockbuster will be profitable when we no longer have DOS and have an integrated system that will benefit customers. I would love to stop getting looks when people ask me a question and I have to say "We can't look that up, we are running DOS"
