Alright folks, this is it. There’s only ONE Blockbuster Video left on the entire fucking planet, and it’s in Bend, Oregon.

Here’s what the store has to deal with in the process of surviving…

  1. A Gen X general manager who is basically irreplaceable because of all her arcane organizational memory.
  2. Floppy disks that reboot a computer system that hasn’t been updated in years.
  3. A broken dot-matrix printer, so membership cards have to be filled out by hand.
  4. And all the store’s business transactions are backed up on a reel-to-reel tape.

But it doesn’t matter what kind of arcane shit they have to go through, because this location is a legit cultural phenomenon. Tourists used to stop to take selfies and snatch up shirts, cups, magnets, bumper stickers and hats with the words, “The Last Blockbuster in America” on them. Pretty soon, that’ll be changed to “The Last Blockbuster on the Planet.”

And now Twitter barges in, as you knew it would.

Because this last location (we think… it’s not entirely clear) runs a hilarious account:

And the hilarity continues:

They’ve even got some great deals:

And yes, you need to still be kind and rewind:

Some days are better than others:

And the perks aren’t what they used to be:

But they’re still very inclusive. Even if you are bald.

Recently, they even played an April Fool’s joke:

Okay, I’m sold. I need to plan a trip to this Blockbuster immediately. My life won’t be complete without this visit to my childhood vision of heaven.

Who’s with me?!
