Disgruntled shoppers took to Twitter to lodge complaints under the hashtag #primedayfail while staring down sales of granny pants, shoe horns, and giant drums of lube.
Amazon’s much-hyped Prime Day turned out to be just that: a lot of hype. Wherever you were in the world, the deals just weren't that good. At all. Shoppers expecting sweet deals were disappointed by offers on a motley array of merchandise likened to a garage sale and the storage in your parent’s basement.
But there was a silver lining: the hashtag #primedayfail, which provided levity and continues to be a source of humour and Amazon roasting:
Remember when Peppermint Patty went to Charlie Brown's house expecting turkey, but got popcorn and toast? Its kinda like that! #PrimeDayFail
The only Prime we acknowledge is Optimus #PrimeDayFail
At least on Black Friday you can go to the store and punch someone to get the items you want. #PrimeDayFail
Somewhere out there, a UPS driver is loading up a 55-gal drum of lubricant and 64oz jars of Skippy Peanut butter thinking #PrimeDayFail
It’s not just you, Fry. It’s not just you.
