This REO Speedwagon Cover is the Best Thing BlackBerry Ever Made

BlackBerry is trying to destroy the best thing it ever made. Not the line of hardware keyboard phones, or the less-relevant-than-ever BBM service. I'm talking about the music video.

No One Wants To Shop From an Interactive Music Video
