Latinos Had The Best Reactions To Netflix’s ‘Bird Box’ And The Internet Is Screaming

Netflix released “Bird Box” on Dec. 21 and it broke records for the streaming platform. If you haven’t seen it then stop reading this because it’s full of spoiler alerts.

Like most things that people love on the internet, memes have been created that have left fans howling in laughter. Some people probably only saw the memes for weeks before watching the movie. Here are some of the best ways Latinos have turned “Bird Box” into memes.

People on social media cannot stop talking about “Bird Box” and people are delivering some amazing memes.

If the world is coming to an end, and the kids won’t listen, you better make them listen or else.

Some folks are devastated by the order the characters were killed off.

We weren’t ready to say goodbye but that’s what happens in an apocalyptic tale.

Once you look at those things, whatever they are, you cannot look away.

They get a hold of you so fast, and there’s no going back. But a few special people get to look on as the world burns and feel calm.

The only thing saving people are the beautiful birds.

But you better listen closely, if not you’re dead.

Okay, this mom got way too spiritual about the meaning of “Bird Box.”

Leave it to mom to take this way further than anyone needed to take it.

Someone ever spotted Sandra Bullock in lotería.

All this time she was just trying to train us for the moment we couldn’t see.

Dragging your kids during the apocalypse is not child endangerment.

Just hold on to them tight.

Whole families are getting in on the fun of “Bird Box.”

It might be harder to play lotería while blindfolded but it is necessary to survive.

You better get el cinto if the kids don’t listen.

How else will they listen?

How could she have named the girl something else aside from Cinderella?

She had direct orders. So messed up.

Let’s not even talk about what the only Latina character did to screw over all the other people fighting with her.

This better mean there’s a part two in the works.

A few people see the fatal premonitions already coming true in parts of Latin America.

This feels all too real.

Michelle Obama Will Be Cooking With Kids In Her New Netflix Show

Michelle Obama Will Be Cooking With Kids In Her New Netflix Show

As if we needed another reason to tune into Netflix, Michelle Obama will be bringing a new cooking show to the streaming giant aimed towards kids. The former First Lady was well-known for her health and fitness initiatives while in the White House and now she’s bringing that same passion to a fun new cooking show.

Michelle Obama launches a new cooking show on Netflix for kids.

The former first lady announced on Instagram that she’s launching a children’s cooking program, called Waffles + Mochi. The show will follow two Muppets-esque puppets – Waffles and Mochi – who dream of becoming chefs. One day, they’re hired by a magical supermarket and embark on a series of far-flung adventures to discover new foods from around the world. They travel to Peru to try potatoes in the Andes, try spices in Italy, and make miso in Japan—finding plenty of friends along the way. According to Netflix, Obama will act as the grocery store’s friendly owner.

The show starts streaming on March 16. Although it’s aimed at children, she says parents will enjoy it too: “I know that adults will also get plenty of laughs—and some tips for the kitchen.”

The show is in many ways an extension of Obama’s platform as First Lady.

The theme of the show closely aligns with Obama’s “Let’s Move!” public health campaign, which was aimed at curbing childhood obesity. As one of her signature platforms, she tried to lead initiatives that helped families get access to healthy, affordable foods and increase their physical activities.

“In many ways, this show is an extension of my work to support children’s health as First Lady—and to be quite honest, I wish a program like this had been around when my girls were young,” Obama wrote on Instagram. “I also know that this is a difficult time for so many families, and I’m hopeful that this delightful show can bring a bit of light and laughter to homes around the world.”

“Waffles + Mochi” is just one of the former First Lady’s many media ventures. Her “Becoming” documentary is already on Netflix, and in 2020, she launched a podcast on Spotify. Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions has a multi-year production deal with Netflix.

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

Things That Matter

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

To be a star or a planet? That is the question.

Or at least, it was The Question that made heads roll a few years ago and has begun to do again thanks to a revival of an old video.

Six years ago, in 2015 a QVC segment went viral after designer Isaac Mizrahi and his co-host Shawn Killinger got into a heated debate about whether the moon was a star or a planet. Little did they know that the moon, well, it’s actually just a moon.

Now, six years later, the old segment is making waves again.

Mizrahi and Killinger started the strange debate in a clip that is surfacing again on Twitter.

The clip starts out with Killinger holding up a shirt made of green, white, and blue colors before declaring, “This is what we call emerald, but really it’s more of a seafoam.” She then goes onto point out that “it almost kinda looks like what the earth looks like when you’re a bazillion miles away from the planet moon.”

Then in the familiar way that we’ve all done after realizing we might have made a mistake, Shawn mutters the phrase again, contemplating. “The planet moon.”

Not picking up on her hesitations, Isaac agrees “The planet moon.” Copping to her mistake, Shawn asks “Isn’t the moon a star?”

“The moon is a planet, darling,” Isaac replies before pulling his co-host into a sixty-two-second-long debate in which Isaac insists the moon is a planet. “The moon is such a planet I can’t even stand it,” he even declares at one point. In reaction, Shawn attempts to support her argument by going through the planets in our solar system. Unfortunately, she doesn’t get very far and names Earth, Uranus, Saturn, and “the one with the rings.”

This is when Shawn then comes to the conclusion that the Sun is a star too but Isaac quickly replies that “We don’t know what the sun is” meaning that “us” as in the whole world doesn’t know.

The whole thing is only resolved once someone off-camera confirms what most of us all already know, the moon is not a star, a planet, but a natural satellite.

Much to Shawn and Isaac’s chagrin of course.

“A natural satellite? What’s that mean? I don’t like that at all,” Shawn asks suspiciously. “A natural satellite,” Isaac replies, adding. “But things live on it. That means it’s a planet.”

Fortunately, the hosts move on with the show to sell their shirts, but fans on Twitter have yet to forget.

Someone even animated the entire sequence.
