Did you do it? Did you really waste 20 seconds of your life? In this day and age 20 seconds might as well be 30 minutes. What the hell, in the last 20 seconds, I’ve sent two text messages, got three emails, microwaved a burrito, and started this post.
Now the Feds want to waste 20 seconds of our time with these bullshit warnings! Unskippable, not able to fast forward and just have to sit there like a good little boy and look at that awesome angry bird mocking you.
Know whats cool about pirating videos? They don’t come with a warning. They don’t waste my time with trailers I can’t skip, warnings I can’t skip and commercials I can’t skip. Know what sucks about DVDs they waste my time with trailers I can’t skip, warnings I can’t skip and commercials I can’t skip. This is why I’m DVD collection hasn’t been updated in years. Thank you AppleTV, OnDemand, and Netflix. All this bullshit isn’t on streaming media either. Though I have a feeling if the Feds and movie studios get their choice it will some day be there as well.
Can we please stop with this silliness. This isn’t going to stop people from pirating movies. Just as gun laws only make it harder for law abiding citizens to get a gun and doesn’t stop the criminals from getting them, this is the same fuckin’ thing. All this does is piss off and annoy the people who actually paid for the damn DVD.
Not to mention this is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves. Trying to sell me something when I already bought something. This is why I RARELY go to the movies or buy DVDs anymore. You got me in the seat. Stop playing commercials at the movies! I already spend $50 on tickets and snacks. Stop trying to sell me more shit because I happened to get to the theater 20 mins early and have to watch more Pepsi commercial and your thinly valid “first look” bullshit. It’s nothing more than trying to sell me MORE!!! Same goes for trailers on DVDs I purchased. I don’t give a fuck. I want to watch my movie. When I drop in Indiana Jones from 1981 do I really need to sit through a trailer of “Coming SOON to a theater near you…….. Bill Murray and Harold Ramis in Stripes!” Trailers are great and I love em, don’t get me wrong. Fuck I’ve even posted a shit ton here over the years. But you can’t tell me that after seeing the one or two you’re excited for when you are at the theater that the 10 mins of commercials and 20 mins of trailers it does’t piss you off.
So fuck you FEDS and fuck you MPAA I’ll chose to pirate my DVDs or stream the movies and I’ll take my 700 DVD collection and burn it like a US pastor burns the Quran.
