If you're signed up for Netflix, then you know the service frequently sends out emails updating users with new programming available for streaming. Sometimes, it even makes suggestions for shows it thinks you might enjoy. Well, that PR scheme kind of backfired today when subscribers found a suggestion for a show called — wait for it — Scrotal Recall sitting in their inbox. With a name like that, naturally it's a British series — gotta love the Brits and their cheeky zero-damns-given humor. (It's also the title of a Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode.) No surprise, the reactions to the email were priceless.
Apparently @netflix thinks I'd be interested in a show called "Scrotal Recall." More importantly, there's a show called "Scrotal Recall"??— Saerom Yoo (@syoo) April 15, 2015
Netflix just suggested I watch a show called “Scrotal Recall”. But they failed to suggest “why the hell” I would ever do that.— Brent Butt (@BrentButt) 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
Netflix just recommended something called "Scrotal Recall" for me. I...think we've grown apart, Netflix— Jim Rowley (@thejimrowley) April 15, 2015
Email from Netflix: "Robert, we just added a TV show you might like." *opens email* "Scrotal Recall, Season 1" *closes email*— Rob Abrazado (@flatvurm) April 15, 2015
"Stephen, we just added a new show we think you'll like: Scrotal Recall." Netflix, you and I are strangers.— Stephen Whitty (@StephenWhitty) April 15, 2015
To be fair, the show, about a guy who gets an STD and has to contact all his former sexual partners to give them the bad news, actually sounds kind of awesome? (It certainly adds some context to the name.) Maybe Netflix is on to something. Here's a trailer for the show, in case you're not convinced.
