If you think that Blockbuster stores are dead after Netflix killed it with mail-order service, think again! "The Last Blockbuster" is alive and is making the whole Internet laugh with their funny tweets.

"The Blockbuster twitter account is actually run by a few of us at the store. We’re a small operation, so we take turns running social media, working the registers, and cleaning out the return drop box. A lot of people seem to think it’s a trash receptacle even though we taped up a sign that says it’s for movies and games only," "The Last Blockbuster" revealed in an interview to The Daily Dot.

"It feels special to be the last remaining store of a such a culturally important franchise. But sometimes it feels like we’re the only ones who give a shit about watching films the way they were meant to be watched: on pieces of round plastic, slid into a machine that connects to your home television set."

According to one of their tweets, "The Last Blockbuster" is located "in the Oak Park Shopping Center between Ace Hardware and the former O'Kelly Dojo." The hugely popular funny Twitter account already has more than 169K followers, but it's not entirely clear whether they exist or it is just a parody account.

Please come back! The Mattress Firm that is now in y'all's place has to have something illegal going on. There's no way mattresses get bought enough that they can have three stores on the same street (not even a state road).

Man how I miss this! Being able to actually peruse for a movie, and asking for recommendations or thoughts on a particular film. We had one right next door to my job and their wacky Wednesday special, 3 for $5 couldn't be beat.

So the original "Beauty and the Beast" is under "N" for "nineteen eighty one" and the horrible remark is under "T" for "twenty seventeen". Gotcha.
