As part of its 'Netflix is a Joke' campaign, the streaming platform's newest promotional commercial features various comedians humorously interrupting seemingly normal trailers of popular TV shows.

This brief commercial, which aired at the 2017 Emmy Awards, serves as an answer to the cryptic 'Netflix is a joke' billboards, which have been appearing around L.A this summer. The trailer features Ellen DeGeneres, Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock, -- four comedians with upcoming stand-up specials-- poking fun of dramatic series' moments, by uncharacteristically inserting themselves into the scenes. The hilarious ad features Jerry Seinfeld asking 'House of Cards' Frank Underwood to "lighten up a little," while comedians Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle are seen reacting to supernatural occurrences in a 'Stranger Things' scene.
