He does appear to be the George Costanza of CEO's.

Today's M e m o r a n d u m

To: All Employees
From: Jim Keyes

Date: April 6, 2011


Subject: Outcome of Auction

Today we have achieved a very important milestone in the ongoing transformation of Blockbuster. Early this morning, we successfully completed the 363 auction, and I’m pleased to announce that Dish Network has emerged as the winning bidder for our Company.

The next step in this process is a hearing scheduled no later than April 11th, at which we will ask the court to approve the sale. The closing date for the sale is currently anticipated to be April 21st, but work on a transition plan will begin immediately.

Upon closing, a new chapter of Blockbuster will begin to unfold for each and every one of us. The purchase of Blockbuster by Dish Network is a strategic move that the management teams for both Blockbuster and Dish Network believe will help Blockbuster truly become a leading provider of media entertainment.

More details on the sale will be available within the next couple of days as Dish Network has the opportunity to begin working with, and understanding, each of our channels and support teams.

This is truly an exciting day for Blockbuster. The work and dedication that each and every one of you put forth during our journey in recapitalizing the company was critical in ensuring that we were able to make this sale happen. I look forward to sharing more details on Blockbuster’s new future with you in the coming days.

Thank you,

Jim

Wait, a few weeks ago him or Roger said we were already the leading provider of media entertainment. What happened?

I guess thats what he means by "truly" this time. It's almost an admission of blowing smoke up our asses.

I'm still sending the pickles.

Better yet. I expect him to call a press conference outside of BBV headquarters. He will stand behind a podium, say, "we blew it." He will then sprout wings and fly up to the giant pickle mothership that will wisk him away.
