Definitely not worthy of a "news spot", but interesting/funny none the less.

Funny, it says that commercial "misleads consumers" in the note. Isn't that what Best Buy does...well Best?
They should trademark "misleads consumers" too .

Not sure about the "expert reviews", some maybe, but most...

Made me lol. So true!

Whenever I go into BB I scope out the employees so I know who's trying to approach/mislead me.

Sometimes I ask for help just to watch them squirm.

That is EXACTLY what the Best Buy employees have done the last few times I've gone there. I hate to rag on people but it was really sad.

Lol, what BestBuy? Inaccurately depicting your employees? You on something? Cause I'm pretty sure it's dead on.
