Seth Meyer's New Special Let's You Skip Certain Jokes!
Late Night host, Seth Meyers has done something that (honestly) should have hit Netflix wayyy sooner! He has enhanced the viewing pleasure for his new Netflix special, Lobby Baby by creating a skip button for the Trump jokes. A skip politics button if you will. Flippin’ genius!
So picture a skip intro button but designated to bypass the politics for those of us who are sick of hearing political comedy. Heck…those of us who are sick of hearing about politics in general. Comedy is an escape and Seth obviously recognizes that by giving viewers this opportunity to choose if they want to kibosh these types of jokes all together.
Seth said, "it dawned on me that because it was on Netflix, there would be this opportunity to put in technology that would allow people to skip it…it was a way to build in the response to anyone who would say, 'Oh, let me guess there's going to be jokes about the President.'"
Hopefully this skip button pioneers more features like this on streaming services like Netflix and Crave because damn, we all know a skip button would definitely be helpful. If I could skip all the blood and surgeries in Grey’s Anatomy…fantastic! BUT… why stop there? Why just a skip button for streaming services. Why not a skip button for life? Like that meeting that could have been an email “SKIP!” The gym session you really didn’t want to go to but still have the effects of having gone to the gym, heck ya let’s hit “SKIP” on that too while we’re at it.
Either way, Seth Meyers…thanks for this. I’m sure it’ll prove to be useful in not only his special but other shows and specials for future Netflix shows!
