It's no secret that Charlie Brooker's dystopian series Black Mirror can make for some pretty dark and unsettling viewing at times. But now, a commercial has been created claiming we're all living inside season 6 of the show and it's been taking the internet by storm.
Keep scrolling to see the shocking commercial for yourself, as well as a list of some of the most mind-bending moments from the hit show.
But first, let's head straight into some of Black Mirror's most iconic episodes...
"The National Anthem" (Season 1, Episode 1)What a way to kick off this excellent series? This episode is unlike any other Black Mirror episode - and you know what? That might be a little bit of a bad thing...
Why? Because it just doesn't feel like Black Mirror.The "pig sex" episode, as it's now known (by me), just feels like a normal story about something that could happen today, not in the near future. If there was a headline tomorrow that said "Trump Has Sex with Pig Because of Russian Extortion," I really wouldn't be surprised.
“Shut Up and Dance" (Season 3, Episode 3)I suppose this episode does well to redeem itself in its closing moments, even though it started off a little slow. Young Kenny finds himself doing the craziest tasks just to protect himself from a lewd video of himself getting posted online? It's a good one to get your teeth into.
“Hang the DJ" (Season 4, Episode 4)"It's Tinder, but Black Mirror!". A fine line between dreams and reality...
“Crocodile" (Season 4, Episode 3)Crocodile is right there on the cusp of greatness. Mia tries everything to stay within the little suburban Utopia that she's created for herself. But an outstanding performance from Andrea Riseborough couldn't quite save the absolutely bonkers plot of this episode that leaves viewers asking, "what is going on?"
“White Christmas" (2014 Special)This is the darkest Christmas special in television history. Apart from maybe the oft-forgotten Star Wars Christmas special. It's got twists on twists on twists and it's great! Also, who doesn't love Jon Hamm?
“Playtest" (Season 3, Episode 2)This is the scariest episode of Black Mirror ever in terms of raw horror. Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, "Playtest" is a literal hour-long nightmare. And we're totally here for it!
“Fifteen Million Merits" (Season 1, Episode 2)Okay, can we talk about how this episode predicted the future? I know a lot of Black Mirror episodes aim to do this in a way, but there's actually a social merit system being implemented by the Chinese government right now and we should all be terrified.
The reason that this isn't rated higher is because it feels like a trial run for another episode.But nonetheless, it's a good one to add to your list.
“USS Callister" (Season 4, Episode 1)Oh hello, Star Trek fans.
This episode has everything.It's got humor, it's got adventure, it's got heartbreak, it's got the creepiest protagonist ever. I hated every second of watching it - like any good episode of Black Mirror will make you do.
“The Entire History of You" (Season 1, Episode 3)Nope. No. Just no. This is the first episode of Black Mirror that I watched, and it messed with me in the most specific way.
The scene in which the couple is having sex while playing back memories of their previous experiences in bed...Just... *Italian chef's kiss*. It's so horrifying that I wanted to break up with my man just to prevent this inevitable reality from happening to us.
After watching all of these terrifyingly twisted episodes, we can't help but start comparing things...
It's a quip we've all made...
Black Mirror really outdid themselves this time. Having us EXPERIENCE season 6 instead of watching it on Netflix? Remarkable really— Krys. (@Krys.)1591037126.0
But this week, a commercial appeared in Madrid.
How big of a budget does @netflix have? No one told me season 6 of the Black Mirror was going to be this interactive.— Robbie (@Robbie)1591115137.0
Season 6 of the show has currently been postponed.But one company in Madrid decided to use the idea of 2020 being a Black Mirror episode by creating a fake ad on Photoshop.
The mocked-up commercial, which isn't affiliated with Netflix, claims that the sixth season of Black Mirror is out now... and we're all living in it.
@tishjbird Lawd. They always did say that every episode could possibly happen tomorrow. And here we are 🥴— Rhodalyn (@Rhodalyn)1591277171.0
