John Stamos April Fools Netflix Prank Video


Netflix is now all John Stamos, all the time. At least for April Fools’ Day. Check out the video below!

On Friday, Netflix unveiled a new Stamos-themed homepage with viewing categories all revolving around the handsome actor and his preferences. There’s “Popular Like John Stamos Was In High School,” “New Releases Which Suffer From A Distinct Lack Of Stamos,” and “Reality TV Stamos Watches But Denies It If you Ask Him.” There’s also “TV Comedies That Manage To Be Funny Even Though Stamos Isn’t In Them,” “TV Dramas That Made Stamos Feel Things He Hasn’t Felt In A Long Time,” and many more.

How about “Classic Movies That Have Aged As Gracefully As John Stamos” or the aw-inducing “Movies John Stamos Watch With Nephew”? Maybe you rather watch “Horror Movies That Give John Stamos The Heebie-Jeebies” or “Independent Films Starring Actors Less Rich & Famous Than John Stamos.” Perhaps “Action & Adventure John Stamos Enjoys With His Bros” is more up your alley.

Oh, but that’s not all. Netflix is also touting “John Stamos: A Human, Being.” The description for the “Netflix Original” notes, “There’s more to this Hollywood icon than a dazzling smile and lustrous hair. John Stamos takes us on an intimate journey through the life of a star.”

There’s even a trailer in which Stamos talks about the “role of a lifetime.” That’s playing John Stamos, of course. So, when does the documentary series premiere? Well, if April 31 ever comes around… Watch below!

UPDATE: There’s a second joke video in which Stamos hilariously has an expletive-laden meltdown after being told his docu-series is a prank.
