One week later, people are still ragging on Amazon for lame Prime Day deals

Published Jul 21st, 2015 7:15PM EDT

As we’ve said in the past, the plethora of lame Amazon Prime Day deals was the worst First World Crisis to hit North America since Apple gave everyone a free U2 album. This traumatic experience was so disappointing that people are still ragging on Amazon for letting them down nearly a full week later.

FLASHBACK: Prime Day backlash: The Internet rages after Amazon tries to unload a bunch of junk

YouTube user ThinkHeroPro on Monday posted a satirical video that announced an “Amazon Prime Day 2” that was supposed to make up for last week’s weak deals with better ones. As you can guess, however, the deals offered by “Prime Day 2” were even worse. The highlights:

  • A 24-inch long handled shoe horn, on sale for $13.99 (original price $14.99)
  • A 10-pack of discontinued 3.5-inch floppy disks, on sale for $9.49 (original price $9.59)
  • An airplane belt seat extender, on sale for $16.48 (original price $16.98)
  • A Samsung 105-inch 4K 3D TV, on sale for $119,998.99 (original price $119,999.99)

You get the idea.

The video has received nearly 200,000 views as of this writing and has also become a big hit on Reddit. None of this Internet rage stopped Amazon from posting record sales on Prime Day, we should note.

Nonetheless, the whole video is very funny and can be found below.
