And while staying in and watching Netflix often beats whatever nature has to offer (trees?), even it couldn’t compete with the Great American Eclipse.
People left their homes and offices in droves and for once looked at the sky instead of their screens. Late last night, in a series of tweets, Netflix conceded defeat.
Hey, just wondering why 10% of you chose to watch a giant rock cover a giant ball of gas when I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR YOU.— Netflix US (@netflix) August 22, 2017
but really, there was a 10% drop in plays during the eclipse today. Well played, Moon— Netflix US (@netflix) August 22, 2017
