Dramatized Retail Rants

Dirty Cues Spoofs an Angry YouTube Rant About Candles

— October 25, 2014 — Pop Culture
A couple of years ago, Az4Angela posted a YouTube rant venting about the frustrations about the difficulty she had getting the Winter Candy Apple and Iced Ginger Bread candles from Bath and Body Works. The video has recently become popular again thanks to Tumblr and it caught the eye of the funny people over at Dirty Cues.

Although the original 12-minute video uploaded by Az4Angela is pretty impressive on its own, this new "actual footage of the Angela vs Bath & Body Works rant by Dirty Cues reenacts the story in a hilariously over-the-top way. Anyone who has had a bad experience with customer service can surely empathize with the story about just trying to pick up a few candles from the store and getting frustrated by unhelpful sales people.
