Paid actors pretending to love Netflix were actually making a 'corporate documentary'
Here we go again with yet another example of a ‘corporate documentary’, this time from film rental giant Netflix in Canada. What do you mean you don’t know what a ‘corporate documentary’ is? Are you thick or something? Let us SLOWLY explain it to you.
Netflix were celebrating their Canadian launch and got a bunch of Netflix fans to attend, whereupon lots of eager journalists interviewed them so that they could convey to their readers just what a highly-regarded service Netflix provide.
The trouble was that it later transpired that the ‘fans’ were in fact ‘actors’ that had been hired by Netflix specifically to ‘pretend’ to be satisfied customers. In essence, the whole thing was a great big load of ‘bollocks’.
Once they’d been found out to have been caught in a big lie, the Netflix PR machine whirred into action, and announced that the whole thing was intended to be a ‘corporate documentary’. Or you could just call it ‘lying’ – it’s the same thing. If they ever come to the UK, watch them carefully people - they're shifty.
