We could get all “are-you-kidding-me” here, but instead, we’re gonna jump on the bandwagon. What bandwagon? Unboxing and haul videos, that’s what.
Why? Because unboxing is big! Who knew? For you doubters out there, consider this: September 4 is being called “Force Friday,” the day all the new products and toys for the upcoming Star Wars Force Awakens film are released. And how are they being released? In a series of unboxing videos, of course, hosted by various “celebrities” (I use that word loosely here) from across the YouTube and online universe. Many Toys R’ Us stores will be opening at midnight for the event – it’s like black Friday after Thanksgiving. Just two months early.
Before you poo-poo (like we did at first) unboxing videos as just another sign that our culture is in the toilet, consider the fact that for attendees at Comic-Cons across the country, Unboxing makes sense. Why? Because exclusives and collectibles are the reason behind much of the mania on the convention floors.
