Plenty has been written about how Amazon Prime Day is a fake consumer holiday, which is obviously true. But I have not seen anyone write about how fun it is while not simultaneously trying to flood you with affiliate links! Watch this.
Prime Day is a holiday of all consumer goods, from the most popular on the planet to the most forgotten. My favorite thing to do on Prime Day is go through the discounted used items. These are things no one wants, no one advertizes, and no one has ever heard of. There are literally hundreds of thousands of these and on Prime Day they are all on sale! This is the best flea market on the internet. It is a study in consumer desire, intense specificity, failure, manufacturing malleability, and untold stories.
I present the winners of this year's Prime Day.
