#PrimeDayFail is a Billion Times Better Than Amazon's Prime Day

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:

It’s not just you, Fry. It’s not just you.
