business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

As previously noted here on MNB, John Oliver returned to HBO on Sunday night with his weekly series, "Last Week Tonight," and he was in fine form with a long-form comic dissection of the prescription drug industry and how much it pays doctors to put their medicines in people's hands.

But Oliver also led off the show with a quick mention of RadioShack's bankruptcy, and he offered his version of what a goodbye commercial from the troubled retailer might look like.

It is very funny...and, as usual, a little profane. (Be warned.) But mostly, it is very funny, while nailing some basic truths about the current US retail climate. You can click on it at left...and enjoy.
