The agony of trying to unsubscribe | James Veitch

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


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.

Damien Fappier says:

I have a tried and true method of unsubscribing. Newegg was the worst offender. In the end, after more than a dozen emails that were ignored. I sent another one stating I was going to send horse genitalia images to all the nuns houses in the city emblazoned with Newegg marketing material. Got my first reply from Newegg within an hour apologising for past service and I was now off the lists.
This method has worked twice more since then.
