(April 1, 2015) – Netflix has released a new series of short videos with some advice for its most loyal watchers: binge responsibly.

The April Fools’ Day campaign from the company is poking fun at the trend of “binge watching” with 13 mini public service announcements.

Today, if you watch more than two consecutive episodes on Netflix, a video will appear and an actress or actor from one of Netflix’s original shows will warn you of the effects of “binge watching.”


Linda Cardellini, star from “Bloodline,” may urge you to take a shower. Selenis Leyva from “Orange is the New Black” may yell at you in Spanish to get your homework done. Or, maybe Michael Kelly who plays Doug Stamper from “House of Cards” will let you know that you do, in fact, have to go to work.


All the Netflix warnings are available on their website – find them by searching for “Binge Responsibly.”

But hurry, all the videos will be gone tomorrow.
