When I’m feeling particularly mean, I’ll tell Alfie Powell to write Avengers articles instead of me so I don’t have to read what’s going on. He hates me for it but there’s a hierarchy here and he’s propping it up.
While spoilers are a necessary evil (not everyone can watch things immediately after their release), people often utilise them to fit their vindictive agendas.
But you know who the worst people are? The one’s that kick off about you ‘ruining’ a show or film that’s been out for years.
‘Ahh, Friends is such a good show, I’m so glad Ross and Rachel end up together.’
‘Dude, I haven’t finished it yet. Jeez, spoiler alert.’
‘It’s been over for 15 years!!!’
If spoilers really are classed as spoilers they need to be within a certain time frame – otherwise it’s just information.
With Game Of Thrones’ final season on the horizon – which surmounts to eight years worth of waiting – you’d be pretty peeved if someone was to ruin it all for you.
But you can do just that thanks to a new website, which for the small price of $0.99 (£0.78), will automatically text your mates with Thrones spoilers.
Spoiled.io are the ones responsible for this devilry, and they write on their website:
“Do your friends love Game of Thrones, but watch it after it airs? Are you a terrible friend? Great!”
“For just $0.99 USD, Spoiled will anonymously and ruthlessly text spoilers to your unsuspecting friends after each new episode airs. Afterwards, sit back, relax, and view your friends’ responses.”
To ruin your friend’s life, just enter their number in an information box on the website, as well as the episode you want to ruin (if you want all six episodes ruined it’s $4.99 [bargain])and the website will send them a spoiler about the episode.
The messages get sent immediately after the episode’s aired so if they aren’t watching it live they’re screwed. That’ll teach em’.
Spoiled.io will also provide those who pay for the spoiling service with a link to view any responses the texts received, so you can see the extent of the damage you’ve caused to said ‘friend.’
There’s no denying this is excellent sh*thousery but I’d be livid if someone did it to me.
If they really want to mess with people though they should extend this to films. Imagine being able to send Endgame spoilers to all of your mates the day it’s released.
Not even Thanos would be able to wield that kind of power.

Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent writer, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. Since then, he has honed his writing skills over the course of various sex related articles. Now, at the tender age of 26, he’s finally finished experimenting with (on) himself.
