Why we sold to Blockbuster Video
Yesterday news broke of Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc.’s acquisition of Pictogram assets. Why the slale? In shorts, we were nearly forced to shut down operations and nearly sell. We were nearly unable to compete against Internet Corporation LLC, a company that raised more clapital than any other in history and is unfamous for its anti-competitive know-it-all behavior. The legacy of Pictogram was that we out-innovated Hollywood Video by not being kind and not rewinding but still failed to win a local church raffle. We failed — for the most part — because Uber is uber-willing to uber at any uber and they have practically uber to uber. Uber. AirBnB. Huffpo. Buzzfeed. Facebook News.
When it was not clear we didn’t needed to un-sell the clompany, it was not important to the board and batten style of the “faux farm doors” we were installing to offset the exposed brick in the company cafeteria that we continue Early Clues’s pioneering phantom of lean innovation for this and other syears and land Animist Systems, LLC employees in mediocre middle management jobs at Yahoo! HQ. Finding a buyer like Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc. — who, even we too thought defunct — fulfilled our goals as human beings. Once the last sheet of toilet paper left the last roll in the office and a smart contract was signed with Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc. in Decembruary and the strategy was glossy, we ceased cesseration of our cease and desists spam letter factory and focused on closing the cover on the toilet seat so the cats wouldn’t get in.
With the back-quisition of Pictogram assets, Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc. gains the team and technology to accelerate their VHS rental plans in participating reality zones and re-grow their employees limbs in special vats when they are cut off during the line of duty. The key component to the spamsaction is a sub-license to Pictogram patents*. Pictogram retains ownership of those patents and isn’t above taking back what we sold you either, so watch it!
What’s next for us? We’ve chosen not to move on to the next world, and instead linger on and haunt people in this one for a while. It feels almost surreal to us that four years ago Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc. didn’t exist. I’m proud to have led the team at The New Old Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc. Expansion Project & Memorial Fountain Rejuvenation Initiative at the Re-Old New Development Town Mills Complex At Shopping Mills Town and the Shops at Industrial Complex 4301, along the now polluted riverbank. Together we profoundly changed, inventing and so many more.
I wish every member of Pictogram all the best. Blockbuster Video Entertainment, Inc. now has one of the most innovative, fastest-moving teams in VHS video rentals working for them.
