A Video Shows The History Of The ‘Cursed’ Auburn Walmart Pole
As the jinx of the "Auburn Walmart Yellow Pole" continues, a video compilation takes a humorous look back.
Well, it happened again.
Last Wednesday, a vehicle hit the infamous yellow pole from hell! Nothing new there, but this time it ended up flipping a vehicle over on its side.
What is the deal with Walmart in Auburn? It's not exactly in our neck of the woods, but it is fascinating because there seems to be some sort of accident curse going on there, and all because of that damn yellow pole!
Now, I will admit, that years ago when I was broadcasting at the Bangor Walmart, I struck a yellow pole with the station vehicle, and it took years of teasing from co-workers to live that moment down. Who knew that all of this was to come in Auburn?
There have been so many incidents with the yellow poles at the Auburn Walmart, that there is a even Facebook page devoted to it, so this seems to be the perfect time to take an in-depth look at this bizarre situation.
A YouTuber named "Condensed Nuts" (Yes, you read that correctly) put together a video called "The Story of a Pole" and claims it to be more legendary than Stephen King himself.
The clip is a hit, racking up over 6,000 views the past several days.
Is there a lesson to learn here? Absolutely. Slow down, be aware of your surroundings, and be safe! Or, maybe shop at a different Walmart?
