Netflix Went Down Last Night And Irish People Reacted Exactly As You Would Expect

When people got home from work yesterday after a beautiful weekend of sunny weather, there would have been no more popular activity then flaking out on the sofa with a good ol' Netflix binge.

That is until the streaming service went down late last night leaving millions of subscribers trying to figure out what to do. According to DownDetector.ie, reports of problems began to gather around 10.45pm before it was all cleared up just after midnight, not before Ireland descended into a state of panic...

People went straight to Twitter, the modern day equivalent of checking if the neighbour's tv is fecked too...

Survival instincts immediately kicked in...

With words failing, people naturally turned to GIFs

It wasn't long before things got a bit weird...

While the usual witticisms were at play...

It turns out not everyone was affected...

And it all turned out fine in the end...

Btw, who stays up watching Netflix until after midnight? Maniacs. Anyway, never do this to us again, Netflix.
