The short-lived love affair between Netflix and Qwikster gave us plenty of material to work with in this laugh-out-loud spoof on the recent debacle. Qwikly Forgotten was written, directed and produced by the design team here at iE. Chances are you may recognize the actors featured in the trailer as some of our own associates. Well, all except for whomever played the giant DVD envelopes. We're keeping that one a secret. Enjoy!

A love that should never have been

When Netflix CEO Reed Hastings gets talked into a blind date with Qwikster things get interesting. What started as a simple crush quickly takes a turn for the worse as Qwikster starts getting out of line. Reed is pushed to his limit when Qwikster moves all his DVD's to a new location. Now Reed is tasked with patching an old friendship and protecting his company from public backlash. You don't get to 23.6 million subscribers by splitting up the customers.
