Seinfeld in House of Cards? Watch Netflix's Emmys commercial
“Frank, Frank, Frank, this whole talking to the camera thing — I find it unsettling.” Jerry Seinfeld slid into the Oval Office and confronted Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood for a Netflix commercial that aired during this year’s Emmys. “I’m home, I’m comfortable, I don’t want to be confronted. And you could lighten up a little.”
Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and Ellen DeGeneres also appear in the commercial, edited into Netflix originals Orange Is the New Black, Stranger Things, and The Crown. All four comedians have new standup specials coming to the streaming giant.
The commercial might say #NetflixIsAJoke, but the company’s Emmy nominations sure aren’t: Netflix is up for 91 total Emmys, in second place for any network, just behind HBO’s 111.
House of Cards
Ballots, betrayal, and barbecue combine in Netflix’s original drama, which stars Kevin Spacey as cunning congressman Frank Underwood and Robin Wright as his equally ruthless Lady Macbeth. Based on a 1990 BBC serial of the same name.
