The agony of trying to unsubscribe | James Veitch

340896 ratings | 15707169 views
It happens to all of us: you unsubscribe from an unwanted marketing email, and a few days later another message from the same company pops up in your inbox. Comedian James Veitch turned this frustration into whimsy when a local supermarket refused to take no for an answer. Hijinks ensued. Get TED Talks recommended just for you!

Agony? I unsubscribe all the time. I even unsubscribed from this channel, but it keeps popping up on my feed feeding me crap I don’t want.

Anyone else noticed that he got emails from Safemart in his inbox even if he said Safemart was a fantasy name?
Daniel Young (1 day ago)
This is ONLY funny if it were true. Which it is 100% NOT true.. He would not receive any emails! All these gullible people who believe this are the ones I feel bad for.

Hate to tell you but an auto-replay email is against FCC rules. This was tried about 23 years ago by a company called Bluefrog, the government shut them down and took all of their stuff. This is the same law that makes it illegal to send an unsolicited fax. Sad but true.

So the difference between TED and TEDX is that one is about facts and logic with a bit of comedy..... and the other one is a SJW platform

DEAR FREAKING GOD, that was one of the most self-indulgent, smarmy, warm-n-fuzzy MEANINGLESS ADS I've EVER SEEN!!! WHEN, Oh , WHEN??? will folks rise up and tell YT that, as an wholly owned subsidiary of google.com, they don;t need to infringe on our viewing with their ads that NOBODY wants, and when will the folks rise up and tell YT to stick their ads up their collective trillion-dollar assholes?

Funny James Veitch says the thing about getting out the car is mundane, when I was a wee lad I'd pretend to be asleep just so my mom could carry me inside, and she knew I was being cheeky lol
