Netflix brings out the smutty side of brands

Running the social media accounts for a big-name brand can be a thankless task. Not only are you often constrained by the need to be on-message at all time, which can really put the brakes on your creative urges, you're also the first point of contact for customers with something to complain about.

Nothing can spoil your day like having to deal with a bunch of people who are furious about a typo on your brand's landing page. So it always gladdens our hearts to see a brand that's willing to kick back and have fun; it's the calling card of many of our favourite brands that rule at social media.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
