Local university student, Toby Roundtree (19) refuses to let the fact that he can’t afford the $15 per month premium for Netflix affect his chances of having sexual intercourse fellow first-year-students.
With parents who don’t know how to use a computer, and an equally-destitute circle of friends, Toby is unable to even borrow someone else’s Netflix log-in details to stream television programs and movies.
Because of this, he’s been unable to find a way to initiate the three-year-old ritual of inviting a young girl over for ‘Netflix and chill’ – a subtle way of snuggling with the opposite sex until sex happens.
Toby has instead opted to organise a ‘SBS On-Demand and chill’ date with his new crush, Jess.
Or better yet, Putlocker and chill.
Putlocker is an online index of hosted files and a website used for streaming low-quality entertainment media such as c-list films and bizarre unpopular television series.
“I’m really excited to watch the movie Bounce with Gwenyth Paltrow and Ben Affleck. I think she’ll like it” he said.
“I just need to figure out a few other options to load up in the half hour before she arrives”
“Maybe she’ll be into The Butterfly Effect 2″
“I’m not sure, though. She’s an art student so no doubt she has a weird taste in films”
“If worst comes to worst we can throw on Channel 10 on the fat-back TV my parents gave me before I moved out”
