The 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' Robots Take a Snarky Tour of Netflix
Netflix
Whether or not Netflix knew at the time they revived Mystery Science Theater 3000, the crew at the Satellite of Love are big fans of self-parody. And being the smart-ass pair of robots that they are, Tom Servo (now voiced by Baron Vaughn) and Crow (Hampton Yount) have spent most of Netflix's marketing money biting the hands that feed them.

After Netflix agreed to let the two robots and new host Jonah Ray lampoon the first scene of Stranger Things, they've apparently decided to let Tom Servo and Crow run around the Netflix offices with no human supervision. A new series of four videos (at this time) posted by Netflix show the two puppets causing trouble around the offices they now get to work at. First things first, they get access to Netflix's entire library so they can make fun of Narcos and The OA:



An attempt to read fan mail leads them to the Internet, also known as "Al Gore's folly":



An attempt to hit on their makeup artist ends with them mostly just hitting on their own reflections:



And last but not least, they go straight to Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos to pitch their own shows. Sadly, we may never see the erotic late night spinoff of MST3K that they're pushing for. We'll probably get more Adam Sandler though:



It's good that Netflix can laugh at themselves, because Crow and Tom Servo seem more than happy to do it for them. Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return is currently available on Netflix.
