John Stamos Netflix Apology
When I turned on my TV to continue catching up on season 4 of House of Cards, I was faced with the John Stamos Netflix Apology video. It’s not something I would normally be interested in, but I couldn’t help myself. It looked very serious and spoke of a deep, heartfelt apology to John Stamos. I will never see a single episode of “Fuller House”, since, not only could I not stand the original, but the thought of a remake makes me want to throw up in my mouth. Still, I couldn’t help but click on the play button – I knew that if I didn’t, the next day, everyone would be asking me if I saw the “John Stamos Netflix Apology”, and I’d feel really stupid if I had to answer back, ‘What John Stamos Netflix Apology”. I suppose that I mostly wanted to know what it was they were apologizing for. I had not heard anything about them offending him in any way – but I was hopeful that they had, and that maybe it meant they would cancel the second season of “Fuller House” after all. No such luck.
So, I clicked the play button and watched intently as the John Stamos Netflix Apology began to develop. I didn’t mind making my watching of House of Cards a little bit late – after all this was only a minute. I could spare a minute, right? That’s a minute of my life that I’ll never get back. If I end up dying before I see all the season 4 episodes of House of Cards, I’ll have the John Stamos Netflix Apology to blame for it. It was one of the longest minutes, and least useful minutes of my life.
It was an April Fools joke. And a bad one at that. What I had not known, is that People Magazine had earlier planted the “seed” for this silly joke – a supposedly viral video of John Stamos having a meltdown. Maybe if I had seen that first, I wouldn’t have wasted that minute.
I still love Netflix, but John Stamos, not so much. I never really liked him anyway.
