      1. Samson5erb Rocks

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

      2. PetRock151

        Do more of these

      3. Guarr

        Bro ur gatekeeping literally everyone knows what blockbuster is

      4. kobra6660

        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

      5. HentaiHistorian

        I miss video rental stores...

    2. Peter

      I fuckin miss blockbuster man

    3. Dr.Pristine

      I didn’t know there were any blockbusters left

    4. Riley Rips

      Before Netflix and chill it was Blockbuster and cock-thruster

    5. Mac Matheson

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

    6. Glowing Ashes

      Charlie this gave me a great idea: Blockbuster 2.

    7. Brandon Black

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


      I love shooting smack behind Blockbuster!


      Blockbuster failed?! 😳

    10. Zack Lunas

      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?

    11. MVK

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

    12. KaiVasNormandy

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

    13. Cheesecake Gamer

      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.

    14. Matt 24

      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.

    15. Mickey Swanson

      I like the animations penguinz0

    16. LapaTrust

      Hey guys FYI GameStop is next

    17. John Bowrey

      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.

    18. Michael McCarthy

      Sad uwu

    19. ihatemylifelolz

      this...was a really good video

    20. Ricardo Pitti

      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.

    21. Andrew Frye

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

    22. Make1David

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

    23. TheTw4life

      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.

    24. TYL3RZ999

      News flash, Redbox killed Blockbuster not Netflix

    25. Michelle R

      i loved the animation collab

    26. the juiced goose man

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

    27. Svinja

      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

    28. ᅲᅧᅮᅮᅣ쳐ᅵᄆBunnicula

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

    29. Sharkotic

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

    30. Nerk Durgen

      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.

    31. matato

      I didn’t need this information, but thanks anyways

    32. RixOnYoutube

      Blockbuster should expand in africa or somewhere

    33. David Roth

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

    34. ShinyRayquaza9

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

    35. Sonnivate

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

    36. Serpents Tongue

      i had the same dream like two months ago

    37. Landen Mejia

      Haha nice

    38. Clifford Chaos

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

    39. BlueSubaru

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

    40. Critias

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

    41. Intelligence Paradigm

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

    42. sonic3ze

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

    43. Parminder Singh

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

    44. Kirsty Bolomey-Humbley

      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).

    45. Trollin4n00bz

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

    46. Paul L

      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.

    47. gh0stykins

      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. 😞😌

    48. RadicalRhombus

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

    49. cheesepuff

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

    50. CD Poulos

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

    51. Orange Joe

      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.

    52. awsomesaucekirby

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

    53. Rene López

      Netflix is trash

    54. Konnar Watson

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

      1. Maul

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

    55. Druscilla Morlan

      U should do this animation more often

    56. ( ͡°ᴥ ͡° ʋ) Marian.

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

    57. Mitsu00

      At least Oregon got recognized for something

    58. Elijah

      It didn't fail. Blockbuster was extremely successful.

      1. SecretlySatan

        But it could have ruled the world by now.

    59. The Janitor

      6:02 Oh my God, it's Paul Finch..

    60. Unknown Psyco

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

    61. John Fite

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

    62. MrSweetiebear95

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

    63. Bl00dyCh33rry

      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.

    64. HERP derp

      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.

    65. FuckFuckmcgee69 Fuckfuckmcgee96

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

      1. Ryuugu Komachi

        you talking about faze banks ? he is

    66. WellBeSerious12

      Blockbuster?! More like WALLERbuster!

    67. Excali BirB

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

    68. Edward Yanes

      The only thing keeping that last blockbuster afloat is the hipsters who watch vhs in portland

    69. Oluwatobi fadeyi

      Check out a podcast called Business Wars. They had a whole 6 episode series about Blockbuster vs. Netflix.

    70. Official Oldssoal

      I remember going to blockbuster when I was young. I still have sum blockbuster movies
