They GAVE me Quibi for free.
I’ve been exploring this micro-content smartphone-only overhyped failing-beyond-belief streaming service and it’s really weird. You tend to pay money for streaming services like Netflix or YouTube Premium to avoid seeing all those ads.
But Quibi is providing “sponsored content.” Some of the sponsorship is barely noticeable, such as a five second pause on an image of Flo from Progressive Insurance before viewing the music videos on Shower Sessions, which I favorably reviewed this week.
And that’s fine with me. But when the Walmart Branded content is just Walmart employees singing or dancing, you have to stop and say,
Here’s what you’re currently missing by not subscribing to Quibi:
Episode #1. LeBron James buys office supplies from Walmart for school students.
Episode #2. A Walmart employee sings and talks about working at Walmart.
Episode #3. Walmart Employees Rap Battle.
Episode #4. Walmart employees dancing in the aisles of a Walmart store.
I wish I was making this up.
