Quixtar Ad Gets Torn a New One By Kids who Know Better


This Quixtar ad was so loaded with camp that it was only a matter of time before it got spoofed. Here's a parody calling Quixtar a pimp that whores dreams. It even includes a message for future generations: "Our god is money, and he treats us very well. You will join our land someday, and then you will understand the frozen smiles."

We're glad this frozen smile thing is a common problem. We actually thought people just didn't really like us, but this hope-filled manifesto reminds us that's not possible. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Kids that know better???
Obviously don't know enough.
there are goofs everywhere. Just because people drop out of college or don't make it doesn't mean it isn't any good or doesn't work. Although that s a poor choice because we are increasingly learning that college does not guarentee any kind of success in life. (education is still very valuable in my opinion) but being brainwashed in the corporate/government mindset has proven to not work... these kids should look at their parents! Working 50-80 hrs a week, usually BOTH parents working, kids in daycare, debt at all time highs... oh yeah, keep doing what everyone else does & make fun of anyone trying something different.

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid, sekent, you worthless tool of the MLM cult. Someday you will realize your "dream," you money-worshipping agent of darkness.

Fuck you and all MLMers.

I think what Anon Hater is saying, sekent, is that it's fine if you want to do something different. Lord knows, we need different. But don't expect us to not laugh in your face if you try to sell us on the idea of getting rich by selling the same idea to a pyramid of our friends and family.

I respect the send-me-a-dollar scam more than I do any MLM business.

Our economy is changing. And, it use to be that jobs are the ways of the future. I believe that it is no longer jobs and careers that are leading the future. I believe that the 21st century is a business and commerce century. From my personal experience, I have seem people being layoff, jobs going overseas, etc... The economy is changing. And, you have to find something that will allow you to meet with the requirement of the changing economy.
