HAHAHAH...AWESOME! Every time I heard Fucktard I was cracking up...just too funny!!

Cat Power said...

Well Done!

But I think I would have been less kind, and much less able to keep the pleasant voice-over going through the whole 3+ minutes.

I give you A+++ for your control!

I ain't dialing that number.

eeeeeewwwweeeaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh said...

I called the number.

It's a fax number, so you get

eeeeeeuuuuuuuwwwweeeeeeeeaaaaaahhhee

Thanks Etsy.

Truthful said...

Go ahead and give these assholes more attention. The video is meant to piss people off. Look at where they posted the video. It’s posted on vimeo. Vimeo is not you tube. Shitty videos tend to get lost in the community shuffle of Vimeo. They had to do something to make people watch that crap. Etsy is a trend filled with broke hipsters asking to trade their products for other products so they can trick people into believing they are actually selling stock. Rob Kalin is a ginger kid who has no sole. What did you expect. Other companies are paying close attention to the etsy hatred and they are nipping at etsy’s heals. You think I am lying within my statements. Check out Piddix website. She gives great info on how to go broke on etsy. You have a etsy store and you don’t want your money to go to waste. Post six items on etsy and spam the hell out of every board they have until the twenty cents runs out. Cheap advertising.

Me want kitty said...

If I apply for a job on EB, can I have that cat from your video in my own personal phone booth? I promise to feed it and love it and squeeze it and type love letters to it on my plush typewriter. Pretty please?

The Funny One said...

Hmmmmm, could be that all the new bugs being reported on Etsy are because Big-Deal-Chad poses on the video with his finger in the air. The one adult-by-age was talked into making a complete fool of himself along with all the other kids in the corral. Ego trumps one's professional reputation once again.

Spend 6 months on the Etsy payroll and you, too, can be a total fucktard!

Would't you love to hear from former Etsy employees who grabbed their sanity and left??? I would!

applying immediately said...

Yeah when you have 2-3 full time video makers on the staff but only 5% (sorry, is it less?) of your customers actually watch the videos...may as well put them to work doing something.

Awesome!

When looking at Etsy's video again in detail, it hit me how much time they must have spent scrambling around for all that vintage equipment. I haven't seen a terminal like that since maybe 1983.

And a fax number? WTF?

Abby - AKA The Dirty One said...

Me Want Kitty - the kitty in the video is a shelter rescue kitty. And of all the kitties I've ever met (it's a lot of kitties) she has earned the title "the perfect kitty" and is licking my elbow as I type this.

Visit your local shelters and choose an adult black kitty of your very own today!

swim said...

Hmm. We could spam them with random Swimmy fish faxes and put one fail word on each one.. like
Customer Service
Phone Support
etc...

Indigo said...

*evil chuckle* I Love IT!!

Way to go Abby!

sureev said...

They pulled the number out of a hat as a joke? It's not even a real number?

Are adults in charge at Etsy???? Someone should try putting these idiots to work and also making sure they do a good job on at least 10% of the projects Right now it's like uh 0% since they consistently fuck up everything they do for like the whole time I've sold on Etsy

Nice that this hiring video is a big joke to them, I don't even understand what it is supposed to do?

Can somebody sure these assholes or something? Justice would be investors losing their money, the company is run in such an insulting way to customers that they desrve to

this is about right said...

Huh? I dialed that number and some untrustworthy con man tried to sell me Korean Hi-Fi Audio equipment.

Bettyboobs said...

What?? That made no sense whatsoever to me. What a convoluted waste of time.
