With Valentine’s Day approaching, the “Netflix and chill” pick-up line is going to be getting a lot of use, but this Airbnb listing takes the meme to a whole new level. New Yorkers Tom Galle, who works in advertising, artist Moises Sanabria, and Alyssa Davis, an engineer who works for Art404, have decked out Sanabria and Davis’s one-bedroom West Village apartment as a “Netflix and Chill” zone and put it on Airbnb for $400/night.
The apartment, which was listed Wednesday, rocks a Netflix bedspread, “a fully stacked mini-bar, an HD projector with an AppleTV and Netflix account,” and roof access. (In other words, it’s your average single person’s apartment plus a Netflix bedspread.) The ad-hoc hookup zone already has a taker: It’s booked for the month of February (We’re wondering where the apartment’s inhabitants are bedding down while their apartment’s getting lucky.)
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 offering it as a real experience.” The flatmates are planning to leave the listing up for a few months and “see how it goes.” Rumor has it that Netflix is pleased. No word yet from Mom.
