CollegeHumor’s Official Spoiler Rules


Full disclosure: this video is primarily geared towards television spoilers, but as soon as I saw it in my news tips folder I knew it was finally my opportunity to get up on my little soapbox and talk about spoilers of all kinds.

Recently, I switched careers from boring, unsatisfying office job to super-sweet and mildly-satisfying job at one of the fairly large movie theater chains. Needless to say, it often becomes a minefield of spoilers and if you aren’t careful you’ll find yourself face-to-face with a loaded gun. Figuratively, at least. The bullet? Spoilers!

Now, I’m pretty bad about spoiling things for myself, but 99 times out of 100 I go so far out of my way to protect another’s experience it’s almost painful. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do. My first-ever conversation with a fellow employee consisted of her telling me the end of The Vow. All I said was that I was planning to take my little sister and her boyfriend to see it, and BAM ending ruined and enemy acquired. And guess what I still haven’t seen. That’s right: The Vow. Did I want to go into great detail about the twist in Silent House to my best friend who hadn’t seen it? Of course. Did I? No! Why? Because I’m not a jerk! 

Don’t be a jerk. Don’t spoil movies for people. Or TV shows for that matter. Or video games! It’s not hard!
