Student With Netflix Tattoo Gets Free One-Year Subscription11 Mar, 2013 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Get a tattoo with the letters “N-E-T-F-L-I-X” permanently inked to your skin and get a one-year subscription from the streaming service.
That’s what fashion design student Myron Robinson of Kokomo, Ill., got after tweeting March 8 about the tattoo he reportedly had inked onto the side of his stomach two weeks ago.
“@netflix put me on a commercial I love you guys,” Robinson tweeted. Netflix responded, “No way! Free Year for you!”
Netflix apparently declined to offer a job but gave Robinson a free year’s subscription for his troubles. CEO Reed Hastings was so impressed he posted a picture of Robinson’s tat and related the story on his Facebook page.
“First Netflix tattoo,” Hastings wrote.
