This Alfonso Ribeiro Twitter thread broke the Netflix and Chill joke forever

Look, we’ve all had a lot of fun with the Netflix and Chill meme. We’ve dressed up as it for our Tinder photos and Halloween parties. We’ve designed a “Netflix and Chill” button and put the phrase on condoms. Even moms know what it means, which of course means it’s dead. RIP.

Or does it have a little life in it yet? I’d argue that the following Twitter thread—featuring Alfonso Ribeiro of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Silver Spoons, and Dancing with the Stars—is more than just a fitting encore for Netflix and Chill. In fact, it drops the mic on the whole damn concept.  

Pack it in, people. Nobody is topping that.
