Sweet Pop Secret kettle corn with a dash of Sriracha! What will they think of next!? Netflix and it's worshippers are really cashing in on this whole chill phenomenon. First we told you about the company's Netflix and Chill button. Then, we found out about a group of geniuses who proposed "Netflix and Settle." If you recall, it's a feature that quite literally settles on a (terrible) flick so you can spend less time deciding and more time watching a movie that interests nobody.
Most recently came the release of a real-life app that helps you not to settle, but to uncover which shows you and your friends have in common on your watch list and decide what to watch from there. Just when you thought we had an over-abundance of chilling accoutrements, Netflix themselves came out with another. Netflix socks (for real, y'all) might be the most game-changing, glorious invention of all. The socks come in patterns featuring your favorite shows. Pick from Orange is the New Black, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Wet Hot American Summer to name a few.
Here's how they work: Slip on the socks as you relax into your binge fest. By episode 17, if you happen to doze off, the socks will transmit a signal to your TV, pausing the show or film you were watching. Yes, please. "Go ahead. Watch yourself to sleep," the website says. Not a problem. Can we get socks to turn off our phones when they sense we're about to drunk text our ex? How about socks that cancel our credit card after one too many Postmate's transactions? Ya feel me!?
Here's the catch, however. You can't buy the socks; you have to make them. If you are savvy with a needle, thread and electronics, these socks will be a breeze. If not, Netflix provides oodles of instructions, tips and pics so you can try your luck. Personally, we're just going to wait until someone smart makes a bunch and starts selling them on Etsy, but that's just us.
