Not so fun fact about me – when I am not busy writing articles for you lovely people, I am working in retail. Sad but true (got to do something to get me through college). That said, I have had the displeasure of working every single Twilight DVD release… as the store opens. I have experienced the lines of crazed Twilight fans outside the building and the mad stampede of Twi-hards clearing out our stock of DVDs. It’s the same with every Twilight release – mass chaos! But not this year. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 came out yesterday and I was at work bright and early. There wasn’t a line, there wasn’t even a single person waiting outside for the doors to open. Nothing. A few people eventually came in a picked up a copy of the new DVD shortly after opening, but there wasn’t a rush of Twi-hards like past years. It was pretty uneventful and pretty clear that the Twilight craze is very dead.
Twilight haters rejoice! Twilight is over and done with. No more movies, no more books, no more anything. While I am not a Twilight fan and I’m happy I don’t have to constantly hear about it anymore, I am sad to see the entire vampire craze die down with it. Because let’s be honest, Twilight triggered the most recent vampire fad. Now it’s all over, which is a bit depressing. BUT, while the Twilight craze is over and done with, the vampire craze will eventually return, it always does.
All in all, I am happy that the Twilight craziness has died down. I am still a bit surprised by the lack of crazy at yesterday’s release. I suppose people really don’t feel the same way as they did in the past.
What are your thoughts on the Twilight craziness being over with?
