A new season of Bojack Horseman was announced earlier today via the show’s Twitter account. The announcement was followed by a hilarious exchange between Bojack and Netfix.
Bojack Horseman is an adult animated comedy series. Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the show stars Will Arnett as Bojack Horseman. It showcases the day to day life of a washed-out actor who is navigating life in a world where fame is no longer an excuse. While it deals with politics and current events as well, the show is mainly appreciated for its take on depression and self-destructive behavior, as well as its representation of the occasional monotony of human existence.
The new season of the show was announced via the show’s Twitter account. In true form, the account sarcastically replied to an inquiry about the upcoming season with a tired and dry response. The account wrote, “wooowwww congratulations you are the 10000000 person to ask that question your prize is the answer sept 14th now please stop asking me”
A reply from Netflix’s official account came in response to Bojack’s tweet immediately, with Netflix writing, “bojack…we talked about this“.
Bojack replied, “i remember a 87% coherent conversation where you told me to do this right now.”
Netflix then asked, “do I have to revoke your twitter privileges,” to which Bojack immediately threatened, “no you can’t I have powerful friends.”
Tagging Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, Bojack also wrote, “help @jack how do I change my password“.
Netflix then posted a screenshot of a conversation with Jack (an impersonation of Dorsey), in which the CEO texted Netflix at 9:44 AM, saying, “hey there’s a drunk horse demanding to be let into my office?”
Bojack then replied with a screenshot from a conversation with ‘reed big boss’ (an impersonation of Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix). In the text conversation, Hastings congratulated Bojack on season 5, and added “If you get ahold of Jack can you ask him to change the @Netflix password too?”
Netflix replied with its own lethal snub at Bojack, posting a screenshot of its own conversation with Hastings or ‘r-dog’. In the conversation, Netflix texts Hastings to say, “just play along with bojack” and “he needs a win“. Hastings then replies, “lol k“. The time stamp on this text conversation is 9:51 AM, meaning Netflix got to the CEO before Bojack did.
Bojack admitted defeat with a simple, “why can’t you be more like @NetflixFR they love me so big.”
A French fan replied enthusiastically to this message; “French people love you!”
Fans poured in on social media to tweet their excitement about the new season. Depression was a recurring theme in the excited tweets.
