You know that thing where
Skynet Netflix spies on us gathers up information on the shows we watch and based on that data, spits back other shows or movies they think we’d like? At my house, this is always a disaster because the kids watch stuff on a super-old tablet that somehow doesn’t separate out users, so let’s say the grown-ups watch stuff like Daredevil, Bloodline and Starred Up; we’ll still get back suggestions based on Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony. Apparently we’re not the only household with such minor issues.
Yesterday, Netflix emailed a whole bunch of people with what some might think an hysterically funny (others, not so much) suggestion for their viewing pleasure — a little show called Scrotal Recall. Wait, does Netflix even do porn, you might be asking yourself as you run off to open a new tab; have I been missing out all this time? You know, not exactly. While there are some films that contain racy scenes (you go search it, I’m not doing the work for you), Netflix generally has a no porn policy. So, why oh why would they recommend this obviously porny-sounding title? Get a grip, Prudence; it’s just a little British comedy, that’s all.
Apparently Netflix thinks I should watch something called Scrotal Recall http://t.co/2HnV5fxdsI— Jeff James (@unsquare) April 15, 2015
Some people on Twitter had fun with it…
Hey, I'll say this: calling a TV show "Scrotal Recall" is really ballsy.— Evan Roskos (@EvanJRoskos) April 15, 2015
Netflix thought I might like a show called "Scrotal Recall." They're not wrong.— Sara Clemens (@TheSaraClemens) April 15, 2015
There is a television series called Scrotal Recall. This is a real thing on Netflix and not something made up by a giggling 14 year old me.— ZachSellsMagic (@ZachSellsMagic) April 15, 2015
"We added a TV show you might like: Scrotal Recall" Time to see what the kids are watching on Netflix.— Nick Owen (@wikidsystems) April 15, 2015
There's a show on Netflix called Scrotal Recall. Do I watch it or do I watch it?— Abbey Boyce (@cardiganxqueen) April 15, 2015
…and some didn’t.
No Netflix, I am not interested in a series called "Scrotal Recall" no matter how much money you paid to have it made.— Scott Lowe (@TheSLowe) April 15, 2015
Just got a notification from @netflix informing me that “Scrotal Recall” is now available to watch. Time to cancel my subscription.— Andrew Tarantola (@Terrortola) April 15, 2015
Actually, it doesn’t look half bad. Thanks
