Netflix Hilariously Trolls People for Their Viewing Habits and People Can’t Stop Laughing

By  | 

You know how after you watch a few episodes of television on Netflix, it asks, “Are you still watching?” At first, you might think, “Okay, Netflix, yeah I’m still watching,” then start the next episode. Then after a few more times clicking past the question, you start to think, “Fuck Netflix, stop judging me!” Well, imagine if Netflix called out your habit publicly, like, on Twitter. Well, that’s exactly what happened when Netflix trolled users over their Christmas movie viewing habits.

The popular streaming service not only seems to have intimate knowledge of your viewing habits but also has a slew of hilarious people working on it’s Twitter account. When these two ingredients are combined, it gives the world one of the year’s best twitter threads.

“To the 53 people who’ve watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?” Netflix asked it’s followers on Twitter, according to Scary Mommy.

The Christmas Prince is one of Netflix’s many original movies. This one just happens to be a Christmas themed rom-com about a journalist who, through a series of ridiculous and unrealistic events, falls in love with a prince. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it, you probably aren’t missing anything new. However, if you are one of the 53 people who seem to have developed a habit of watching the movie every day this month, then Netflix seems a bit concerned about your health.

Of course, this is Twitter, so with a call out like that, someone is going to clapback at the streaming giant. Netflix trolled users, but users were like, nah.

And thank god for @amandajunebell and her great sense of humor. The exchange that happened between her and Netflix is still making Twitter laugh it’s ass off.

Naturally, after Netflix exposed their infinite knowledge of people’s viewing habits, some followers got a little curious about what the streaming company thought about their own history. Being Twitter, there were plenty of people complaining about “big brother” watching them through their television. But, most people just found the entire exchange hilarious.

Personally, I admire Netflix’s restraint in calling me out personally for many hours I’ve wasted watching past seasons of cliché CW shows. It can’t be healthy for me. But seriously, I may need an intervention.
