Are you looking for the perfect place to kick back on vacay and do nothing but watch NetFlix? Do you want to journey to one of the most exciting cities in the world, see no attractions, and instead binge watch all of this month’s offerings? Well then, I’ve got just the place for you.
AirBnB now has a one-bedroom listing in the West Village of New York that is specifically for the Netflix obsessed. For $400.00 a night, you get:
• A Netflix bedspread
• A fully-stocked mini-bar
• An HD projector with a Netflix account (and an AppleTV, just in case you run out of things to watch)
• Access to the rooftop
The listing is the brainchild of three New York City friends who work in art and advertising. One of them, Tom Galle, told Mashable, “A lot of our work revolves around Internet culture or popular culture. We loved the idea of bringing a meme to life and offer it as a real experience. The Netflix and Chill meme sort of naturally came up as the right subject to build a project around, and the idea grew automatically from there.”
As much as it seems completely ridiculous to go to NYC and spend your time watching TV, the listing, which only went up yesterday, has already booked one guest for February. But, at the very least, the internet finds this whole thing as stupid as I do:

Listen, I’m just as lazy as the next person, and laying around watching TV for a few days is not outside of my realm of normal behavior. But I do it at home, for free. Personally, for $400.00 a night, on a trip to New York City, I’m staying at a nice mid-town hotel with room service and spa, and actually leaving the room to go drink until 4:00 a.m. But maybe that’s just me…and every other normal human.
P.S.: Can I just note that I’m pretty proud that I made it through that entire piece without a “Netflix and Chill” reference? (Tom saying it doesn’t count, damn it.) It was hard, but it’s just becoming so passé, isn’t it? Can we all agree to just kill it now? Who’s with me? .
