Failed Business Names

Unbelievable Business-Name Fails — Real and Fake

You're not the only one reeling over the news that Blockbuster will be shutting down all its stores. But instead of mourning, we must think of all the good times (shout-out to those nights spent browsing VHS rentals with a pack of Twizzlers in hand) and, of course, find the humor in it all. Thanks to the Comedy Central show Midnight, the Twitterverse has been coming up with other businesses that will never succeed, Blockbuster-style. The names are fake, of course, but lo and behold: we also found some real-life photo examples that are just as cringe-worthy. See 'em to believe 'em.
