don’t accept imitations

I read on Selectism today that Visa is preparing to drop an uber-exclusive “Black Card”.  At $495, your carbon graphite card gives you 24 hour full concierge service perks, priority access at hotels and more.  I think for $495 you should get all of that, my only problem is the name.  There will only be 1 “Black Card” and that’s the Centurion Card by American Express.

Urban Dictionary defines the Black Card as,

“A highly regarded, exclusive American Express Card issued by “invitation only” to current AmEx holders with high incomes and A+ credit. This card entitles its holders to VIP access, upgraded flights, event tickets, and special treatment at department stores and such. A $2500 fee is payed by each of its card holders annually. Also known as a “Centurion” card.

“I’m sorry Sir, tickets are sold out”

“I’m sorry Sir, how does front row and backstage access sound?”

“I’m under 21 with a Black Card” -Bow Wow”

Sorry Visa, but I think you are outclassed.  Here is an unboxing video of the true Black Card:
And here is one of rap’s biggest endorser of the Black Card in his video “Baby Don’t Go”:
Oh, and more information is available here at Wikipedia.  Visa, I think Amex has got you in checkmate.
