Of course, the subscription VOD site is utterly mum’s the word when it comes to viewing metrics and just how many people binge viewed “Cards.” But if parody vids like “House of Cardinals” and “Junkie” are proof of anything, it’s that there are legions of Netflix viewers who, after holing up in their apartments and homes for hours to watch the Kevin Spacey drama, are desperately in need of the “LOLs.”
“Junkie,” from comedian Jon Rudnitsky, capitalizes on the direct-to-camera dialogue that Spacey’s character Francis maintained throughout “House of Card’s” first season.
The “Cards” honchos have taken note of the comedian’s vid, along with over 10,000 viewers since its debut on YouTube earlier this week.
It’ll be interesting to see if the second season of “Cards” will ignite similar parody buzz. Perhaps, (hint hint), the next course of viral vid inspiration is tantric TV viewing?
Just a thought.
