Bieber = Upgrade From Ozzy? Yeah, I Don't Think So

In a recent Super Bowl commercial, Best Buy announced that when it’s time to upgrade one of your technological products (since it’s ALWAYS time to upgrade, since companies use planned obsolescence every day to make sure we’re constantly buying, upgrading, wasting resources, and funding genocide), they’ll buy it back so you can get the new version (because you NEED IT! You need it badly, right now, and you should stand in a line all night until you get it!). Well, the policy itself, if it is even true at face value, is a little cool, since it would be less costly for people in general. But the commercial is pretty stupid.
