IOWA CITY, Iowa — Following the announcement earlier this week that former DVD and game rental giant Blockbuster would be closing all of its remaining stores, Peter Anderson, 29, confirmed Friday that he occasionally still uses his Blockbuster Gold Membership Card in his wallet as a backup toothpick.
“I had to rent over 1,000 movies to get the gold card,” Anderson said proudly. “But to be honest, I haven’t used it in years. I kinda forget Blockbuster was still a thing until I had this pulled pork sandwich yesterday and no floss.”
Anderson continued: “I should probably just buy some floss. This thing is useless.”
Sources later confirmed that Anderson used the Gold Membership Card to clean dirt from under his fingernails before placing it back into his wallet.
