Netflix Live Is a Surprise Netflix Original Starring Will Arnett You Should Watch (And an April Fools Joke)

By

In Netflix’s newest original offering Netflix Live the streaming service utilizes one of its biggest stars Will Arnett (Bojack Horseman, Arrested Development) in one of the most boring ways possible: as the narrator of a particularly bland office. In the 48-minute “sneak peak” to the special which dropped on March 31, Arnett uses his gravelly seductive voice to continuously narrate the mundanity of an office filled with gray appliances with the fortitude of sports newscaster on the radio. Yet, as Arnett reaches for bizarre metaphors and anecdotes to fill the silence while a burrito slowly turns in the microwave it’s hard not to fall into an amused trance.

Though the title says “live” the same 48 minutes have been available to stream all day. Netflix has turned to special April Fool’s Day programing in the past. Last year the service created categories based on the release of Fuller House, including “Movies that Make John Stamos Feel Emotions,” and in 2014 offered “new originals” featuring bacon sizzling and rotisserie chicken rotating. You can stream Netflix Live on the service now.
