John Oliver’s Radio Shack ad

Radio Shack, the company that many hobbyists used to rely on for so many years to satisfy their needs, has like many other brick-and-mortar chain stores, been going through hard times recently, especially as more and more devices become black boxes and provide fewer opportunities to take apart and tinker with. Last week they announced that they were filing for bankruptcy and selling many of their stores to Sprint.

On his show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver wonders why so many people on TV seem to be enjoying the spectacle of the venerable chain of stores going broke and many people losing their jobs and he suggests an ad that the company should air in response.
