The Goldbergs Exclusive Sneak Peek: Adam Tries to Scam Columbia House

What could go wrong?

Liz Raftery

On Wednesday's episode of The Goldbergs, Adam (Sean Giambrone) comes up with a great scheme to pull a fast one on Columbia House, the infamous "12 tapes for a penny" business that ensnared thousands upon thousands of music fans in the '80s.

In Adam's thinking, if he creates a number of false identities, he can sign up for the club multiple times and get all the hottest cassettes from Hall & Oates, Billy Joel and the like. It's foolproof, he tells Erica (Hayley Orrantia), especially since he's come up with elaborate backstories in addition to the fake names. What could go wrong, when he comes up with such crackerjack personas as "Optimus O'Prime," a 41-year-old truck driver who also happens to be a huge fan of Chicago?

Check out an exclusive sneak peek of the episode in the video above.

The Goldbergs airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c on ABC.
