Giveaway: Win a Netflix Middle East Subscription

This New Netflix Ad Is All of Us This Ramadan

We've all been there…squeezing in just one last episode of 13 Reasons Why on your phone before bedtime, only to blink and realize it's your 6.30am wakeup call. What about wondering how on earth it got to 3.40am when sneaking in a cheeky Girl Boss episode on a school night?

Rushing around to get our lives together as a result of a Netflix binge is something many of us can relate to here in the Middle East, and with shorter working hours during Ramadan, the habit will probably only get more intense over the next 30 days or so.

The streaming platform's latest campaign is sure to put a huge grin on your face as you see yourself in many characters. Hardcore series bingers will even recognize some pretty clever references and hidden messages along the way, including the Stranger Things kids on their bikes in a reenactment of Girl Boss's Sofia pushing her car along the street, and a Drew Barrymore-esque kitchen feast from The Santa Clarita Diet.

Those who cannot wait another moment for Orange Is the New Black to return to screens might see a Crazy Eyes poster in the hospital corridor and Piper Chapman's name on the retail bag as a lady gazes through the store window.

Basically, this new ad is all of us:

When you're like, "I'll sleep when I'm dead, YOLO!"


But instantly regret it just as you start to feel sleepy


You have approximately 0 seconds to squeeze in some beauty sleep


You're so mad at yourself, you could just scream


Because you, like, literally can't function...


The insensitive looks really aren't helping...


Then you roll up to work in THE WORST mood


But you muster up the energy to step into the office like the total Girlboss you are


No one knows you're so tired that you'll just about take a nap anywhere


And at the end of the day, you can't help but go back for more...


UPDATE: And the winners are...
