Netflix's Photo Error in Marie Kondo Promo Launches a Slew of Memes

By Mustafa Gatollari

If you've ever watched Netflix's Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, you know the Japanese clutter-destroyer is about as upbeat, positive, and passionate as it comes. Marie really, really, really loves creating positive vibes in one's home. She's like the Mary Poppins of happiness through minimalism and her trademark is only putting things in your home that, as she puts it, "spark joy." I could definitely get down with that.

There's a lot that's been said about the KonMari method and the cultural roots behind it, but even on a surface level it's evident that Marie's sweet persona is a genuine one and her love for simplicity isn't just attractive and transformative to the people and families she helps out on her show, but also to audiences who watch her go to work.

It's easy to imagine the petite, ebullient Kondo walking into a closet and emerging with tons of clothing on hangers and gently instructing people to choose what to throw out.

What's not so easy to imagine, is her rocking a cloth around her face in a harsh desert landscape, decked out in military fatigues and brandishing an AK-47 in front of her face, ready to throw down. That's why this Netflix glitch is making so many people crack up.

Whoever is in charge of uploading the promo photos for Marie Kondo's self-titled show messed up big time and, thankfully, William Hanson was there to capture the hilarious accident with this screenshot.
