Netflix Started a Thread of Naughty Jokes from Brands and It's So Weird

By

Twitter seems to be on a mission to pump out the worst tweets of the decade in the last few weeks we have left. I can only assume that's why the "What's something you can say during sex and BLANK?" joke has gained so much traction. It's cringey! It's weird! It has been infiltrated by brands. Netflix started the thread with their tweet asking, "What's something you can say during sex but also when you manage a brand Twitter account?"

And folks, the brands came out of the woodwork to answer. I'm of two minds about this. First, I don't like it! It's like watching your parents make crude sex jokes. But second, I had a field day imagining the emergency meetings and Slack threads of the social media teams who run these brands' accounts, trying to come up with a tasteful sex joke about their company. That had to be a fun day at work, and I'm glad for them. 

Cruel, cruel Netflix

They just couldn't keep their mouths shut, could they? They just couldn't not ask the brands to rise up like a sentient, sex-crazed zombie army and assault us with inappropriate jokes, could they? I see you, Netflix. And I don't like it.
