You happen to catch those cheeky Netflix billboards that popped up in a few cities around the country? We didn’t. But, we heard about them. It was pretty poorly kept secret that Netflix was behind them, even though they tried their hardest to deny it.
During an Emmy’s commercial on Sunday night, Netflix delivered the punchline. They did it in a 90-second spot that dropped Jerry Seinfeld into House of Cards, Ellen DeGeneres into The Crown, and Dave Chappelle into Stranger Things. A brilliant way of advertising their original stand-up comedy specials (and reminding people they’ve got more than just the hit dramas).
Gotta say, Jerry Seinfeld and Frank Underwood probably wouldn’t make a good sitcom, but we’d still watch it.
