In the mirror: In movies and TV shows, fictional works are often featured in storylines. BoJack Horseman, a Netflix animated series, is based on the anthropomorphic horse that starred in the 90s sitcom Horsin ‘Around. 30 Rock has a storyline about a character promoting a film called The Countryside Juror.
Web designer Lynn Fisher took these and other fictional works and combined them into a searchable interface called Nestflix… Think of the Netflix interface, but for fake content. Neat, right?
Nestflix offers over 400 “storytelling” stories, all of which can be viewed in the same way as on Netflix. Announcing the project on Twitter, Fischer said it was “just a wiki doing some kind of cosplay,” and Netflix asked her not to send her a cease-and-desist order.
If you want to kill time on the Internet, this is a surefire way to do it. The sheer amount of work that Fischer put into this project is impressive. “Classic” like Angels with dirty souls from Home Alone is sure to put a smile on your face, just like Courage of the cosmos from Duck Tales, oh these kids Reptar!, The Truman Show and this longtime favorite from South Park.
Fischer has Presentation form on the site, but had to suspend it due to the recent influx of user suggestions. If you have an idea for a post that isn’t already on the list, perhaps bookmark the site and come back soon as she plans to reopen the submit box when she gets caught.
