The advert pokes fun at 'Stranger Things', 'House Of Cards', 'Orange Is The New Black' and 'The Crown'
A new advert sees Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Ellen DeGeneres spoofing various Netflix shows.
The ad for upcoming Netflix specials from the various comedians is titled ‘Netflix Is A Joke’ and pokes fun at Stranger Things, House Of Cards, Orange Is The New Black and The Crown. Seinfeld tells Kevin Spacey’s House Of Cards character Frank Underwood to “lighten up”, while Chappelle asks the Stranger Things gang to delete the cookies from his computer.
The advert was aired during last night’s Emmys. The Handmaid’s Tale, Black Mirror, and Big Little Lies were among the main winners at the Emmys, after scooping a total of six prizes.
The award for Outstanding Drama series was awarded to ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ after the dystopian sci-fi drama drew huge acclaim from critics. The best director award also went to helmer Reed Morano, while Elisabeth Moss picked up the Best Actress award and Ann Dowd triumphed in the Best Supporting Actress Category.
HBO series Big Little Lies also triumphed in the limited series categories, with Nicole Kidman picking up the Best Actress award, along with a Best Supporting actress win for Laura Dern. It also won in the best supporting actor category (Alexander Skarsgard), best director (Jean-Marc Vallee) and best limited series.
Black Mirror, meanwhile, led the charge on a big night for British talent, with romantic time-travel episode San Jupinero bagging the awards for Outstanding TV Movie and Outstanding Writing for a TV Movie.
