Also, the only women who buy video games are purchasing them for small children.
Nice thoughtful use of colors in the opening graphic:

And Our Audience
I want to see the rest of the Gamestop training vids...might explain a lot
Damn that dude and his gamer jargon like How can I help you and what game are you looking for. What a dick.
I've seen lots of women going into that place, they probably just didn't know that everything is $20 less at Wal Mart.

Dude, I am so gunna sell something to Marge Simpson. Especially the subscription to HUSTLER they are about to offer.
If only she didn't sound like Charlie Brown's mom.
i suddenly want to play MIRROR'S EDGE
I couldn't help but think that most girls would think the employee's are calling them fat with that promotion.
The Department of Womanly Studies is where I earned my Mrs. degree!
I couldn't disagree more- if I'm going into a GameStop, I would definitely prefer being ignored. No, I don't need your help finding the latest shovelware "BABY ANIMALZ" game of choice for my child/grandchild/niece (if I've chosen not to do the proper female thing and shit out more future Gamestop employees...instead keeping my womb a desiccated cavern of evil and my tender motherly bosom for cuddling cats). Actually, "Josh", I would prefer you let me browse these Intenda games in peace. Look, see, there it is. Now let me just slip "Tapirz" into my "Purse" so I can escape silently from your Dorito and sweat-scented sausage party.
I'm not a woman but I would also prefer to be ignored. Thank for taking that into consideration, service employees.
"into alex's hands" *zoom in on alex's hands*
nice cinematography there.
Our unfortunate associate has inadvertently triggered the flight response by being black.
Sarah Haskins hired a stand in and has gone meta?
I this is pretty much a fake, but it's a pretty funny one.
The narrator's "Director Of Womanly Studies" title is a dead giveaway to begin with.
...at GS university. GS = Game Spot. It's a real training video, it's just a ridiculous "thinks it's funny" one. Anyone who has worked at any mall store has been subjected to it's equivalent.
Even if this video isn't fake, that accent sure is.
I figured it was a real training video done in a jokey/unintentionally-sad style
I hate training videos. Fuck employment.
Tits or GTFO.
I don't think I've ever stepped inside a Gamestop for the past 5 years without regretting it. Always huge lines that take forever in part from there being only one cashier ever on duty while the 5 other employees bug customers and talk about their WoW guilds, and in part from that one cashier spending so much time trying to convince each customer to buy the strategy guide or reserve more games.
Now I just say "fuck it" and go to Target. They have plenty of copies on release day (none of this pre order customers only bullshit), short lines, and the bored teenager ringing me up has the courtesy to not talk to me or scoff at how jRPG Grindathon-X is a much better game than what I'm buying.
My problem with GameStop is it's always swarming with kids, even during school hours.
Regardless, I think we all can look forward to the day when they go the way of Circuit City.
If a GS employee talks shit about what you're buying, go here:
Hit the store purchase feedback link with your receipt in hand and start negative reviewing the fuck out of the store and mention the alpha dork talking shit (don't be too specific or he'll glare at you every time you walk in). After that, you'll get about a month to purchase your copies of Barbie Horse Adventure condescension free...that is...if the manager gives a shit and yells at his minimum wage employees.
This was a tip passed down from a friend that manages a store. Now I pass it on to POETV.
Ugh...that one guy probably faced some kind of docking if he didn't say more stuff/try to sell more shit to the lady who just wanted to buy a damn gift card.
Frumpy Eowen makes some good points and I feel like were on the verge of a great breakthrough in gender relations.

jesus, that "accent"

So...this is the video Enjoy said he was in?

Clearly the British woman is a master hypnotist who can make both her underling and random customers freeze or bend over at her will.
I suddenly understand why these assholes wouldn't hire me in high school.
I was going to come up with a masterful snarky clever comment on what this piece of shit is suggesting, then I watched the host huff a marker at 6:21

We're calling you stupid AND fat!
I like how they break it softly with that dykey geek girl.
She's a girl, but she knows what you're mumbling about!
FAKE, what about selling strategy guides or used versions for 2% off retail?
Sharpen the mind and shape the body BITCH!
Yes, you'll sell video games to Olympic track stars, 70s roadside diner waitresses, and ladies in a wide variety of military uniforms.
|dr tits |
sharpen the mind with.... COSMOPOLITAN!
and remember: power to the players, biotch
|La Loco |
God, this place is like the nerdiest, grimey joint in the world.
Whenever I go to GameStop (which is rare,because of their horrible pricing) I'm greeted with awkward conversation and no eye contact whatsoever. It's just a creepy atmosphere for girls who like games.
I don't see how this is a girl-specific experience.
The woman from the Orbit Gum commercials has fallen on hard times.
