An American Christian group called Return to Order had a petition of over 20,000 people to get Netflix to cancel an upcoming show Good Omens because they found it blasphemous! It turns out Return to Order should be called Return to Sender because they sent their petition to the wrong place. Good Omens is produced by Amazon not Netflix. I love this so hard, because it would’ve taken a 4-second Google search to find out the most important detail: who makes that ungodly work of unholiness. Maybe it’s an omen that god doesn’t care about this silly petition and they should focus on real problems like sick children or Lindsay Lohan getting her reality show back.
Netflix is doubling down on Prank Encounters hosted and produced by that Stranger Things kid Gaten Matarazzo. Not since Terrence Howard’s Fright Club has a prank show sounded so gross and pointless, but Nexflix released a statement reassuring folks that the premise of PE isn’t as bad as it sounds. Netflix says that the cannon fodder for PE all came in under the pretense of a “one-day, hourly gig” and they got paid for it. So calm your tits, these lazy gig economy schlubs wouldn’t know what to do with health insurance, PTO, or weekends and evenings off anyway!
Gaten Matarazzo Is Hosting A Prank Show That Hires People For Fake Jobs, And The Internet Already Hates It
In the grand tradition of Punk’d, Scare Tactics, and Jackass, Deadline reports that Netflix has ordered eight episodes of a series called Prank Encounters, in which innocent strangers will be pranked on the job by 16-year-old Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on Stranger Things. The basis of the pranks is that people are hired for fake jobs, not knowing their new job is fake, and they were only hired so strangers at home can laugh at their misfortune. If that seems kind of like a cruel set up, then you might be one of the many people who called the show out before a single episode has been released.
Netflix’s amateur baking show Nailed It! is a real joy if you love watching people who can’t tell modeling chocolate from their ass fail to recreate complicated cakes before a panel of judges in an attempt to win money. It’s also great if you’re a fan of the show’s boisterous, high-energy host, comedian Nicole Byer. But never would I try to sell it based on the chemistry between judge Jacques Torres and assistant director Wes. But Netflix did, and Nicole was pissed enough to tweet about it.
When all of the frat brahs who fetishized Adam Sandler movies grew up and dropped him to start secretly pounding it to Tucker Carlson on Fox News, Sandler’s stock dropped with the regular movie studios. But, luckily for him, he was able to find refuge at Netflix. For some reason, the streaming service signed him to two multi-picture deals. Here’s the trailer for his latest flick, Murder Mystery, with Jennifer Aniston. Who did she lose a bet with? Angelina Jolie?
The Beyhive got their stingers in a twist when their Google alerts went all dingy this week with the vicious claim that Ariana Grande got paid twice as much as their leader Beyonce to headline Coachella. I mean, it makes sense, since Ariana had the best four members of NSYNC in her Coachella show, and Beyonce didn’t even TRY to get O-Town for hers. But because this is not a belated April Fool’s Day prank, and anyone on their meds would know that we are living in real life world and not The Upside Down, of course there is no way in Hell, on God’s Green Earth, or while Beyonce is still living and breathing (and probably into the Afterlife, who are we kidding) that type of wage gap disparity would actually happen to the Queen of the Honey
