If you're hosting a holiday themed gathering of some kind this year, there's a chance you're going to play Netflix's "Fireplace For Your Home" on your television in the background. Why will you do this? It's hopelessly tacky. And yet, it will feel totally right; a bit like eating fruitcake and decorating with poinsettias. But who the hell makes these videos in the first place?
This hilarious video from the folks at Netflix takes a "behind-the-scenes look" at the making of "Fireplace For Your Home," and imagines the weird, manipulative, obsessive compulsive filmmaker responsible for the work.
He seems like a real asshole! In reality, whoever makes these videos is probably just an opportunist—but it's funnier to imagine him as a total jerk. This video could have gone so terribly wrong—but instead of a failure of marketing, it's a triumph of comedy. [Devour]
