John Oliver Made This Perfectly Bitter, Curse-Filled Farewell Ad for RadioShack

Brand should go out with a bang

The end of RadioShack is nigh. And in John Oliver's fantasy world, the 94-year-old brand wouldn't sputter out gracefully. No. It wouldn't even be passive-aggressive about its slow decline. It would be straight up aggressive-aggressive, blaming America for its failure.

Oliver calls out American media for the gleeful tone they've taken while discussing RadioShack's demise, noting that the brand should be hurt by the level of disrespect. 

He also made the parody ad below, which he freely offers the brand to use. It quickly shifts from sweet and sentimental to angry to full-on hurtful in mere moments, with the voiceover artist working in kind, sounding all the more sinister by the second.
