Desecrated Corpse of Failed Electronics Store Radioshack Brought Back from the Dead as a Scrolling Crypto Meme Zombie

The ‘Shack’ sold batteries, RC cars, DIY electronics and all things wire and transistor for the solderer in your life. It was a ubiquitous sight in America’s parking lots until it wasn’t, with the e-commerce boom driving the company to bankruptcy in 2015.
