Gizmodo Mocks Best Buy, Gets Same Treatment

Filed as News on July 12, 2009 5:44 pm

Ah, the wonderful world of online publishing! Tech blog Gizmodo ran a post detailing the seven types of Best Buy employees, complete with caricatures and everything. Pretty funny, right? Well, Barry Judge and his fellow Best Buy peeps thought to respond in kind which is fair, despite them only finding one type of Gizmodo bloggers. Which sparked targeted blogger Adam Frucci to respond in a post of his own.

I enjoy the humorous pop at any establishment every now and then, but I must say I enjoy it even more when the establishment joins the fray this way. It’s all good natured and all, at least on the surface. And maybe it’ll keep someone from taking something like this across the line in the future, who knows?

    As much as I can see some humor in the response, it’s actually rather pathetic really. As some one who has had the misfortune twice of visiting a BestBuy store in the United States I know Gizmodo was pretty close to the mark. Barry Judge should spend less time trying to be witty and more time improving their loathsome customer service.
