I’m gonna make a bold prediction right here, right now.
And you can say you heard it here first when it comes true.
There will be a video store renaissance at some point in the next ten years and places like Blockbuster (but maybe not actually Blockbuster) will see a major resurgence.
Because what’s more fun than roaming through a video store looking for a great flick to watch with family and friends?
Streaming just ain’t cutting it, people!
But until that happens, at least we can enjoy this funny Twitter account that envisions what’s going on inside the last Blockbuster Video store on Earth. Let’s check it out.
1. Those late fees won’t be erased.
Don’t even think about it…
The coronavirus is no excuse for missing a return date. Have your kids run it over or something.

2. We need to do a wellness check.
A little help over here?
Can someone walk by the store and let us know if it's still there?

3. It’s totally worth it!
Boom! Four posters sold!
Just sold 4 posters in the last hour. It's moments like this that make all the prank calls, the drunk customers, the impending layoffs, the sexual graffiti, the bathroom piss puddles, the return slot liquids, and the arson attempts worth it.

4. That’s one way to look at it.
You gotta see the bright side of things.
We may not be financially rich, but we're rich in available parking spaces.

5. You guys are livin’ the high life!
When did you get so fancy?!?!
It's so nice out we cracked open the Quickdrop return slot to let in some fresh air. It feels like were in a convertible.

6. Colleen is at it again.
You might want to demote her…just an idea…
We just caught Colleen making a serious financial decision for the store based on a magic 8 ball so that's not good.

7. Putting Mr. Pilsen on blast!
Wow…this might get ugly.
Customer Spotlight: Kurt Pilsen!
Late Fees: $128.31
Address: 4505 N Elmbrook Ave.
Children: Tanner, Ashlan and Shad

8. Ma’am…you have to leave now.
This isn’t the airport!
There’s a woman in here charging her phone on the floor by the gumball machine like this is a fucking airport terminal.

9. Just their luck…
What else could possibly go wrong?
Of course a worldwide pandemic hits right when we're going through a two decade financial free fall.

10. Sure, I’ll give it a shot.
Things might get a little bit weird in here…
If we poured some CBD on the popcorn is that something you'd be interested in?

11. Not gonna work anymore.
Oh boy, here come the waterworks…
Due to the financial crisis, crying will no longer guarantee you a refund. We will reassess when things approve.
— The Last Blockbuster (@loneblockbuster) July 3, 2020
12. Gone but not forgotten.
We will miss you…
We dedicate this tweet to all of our candy and salty snacks that have expired during these difficult times.
