Remember that CBS story lauding Amazon’s new plan to employ an army of drones for its delivery service, only to get pretty much shot down as media hype due to multiple hurdles, including the FCC? (Damn you Charlie Rose, we trusted you!)
Either way, Netflix remembers. And while the company may be cozy with Amazon when it comes to using its cloud services, the two are in direct competition when it comes to streaming video. Perhaps in the spirit of that competition – or maybe just to egg the king of online shopping on a bit – Netflix created a little video poking fun at Amazon’s grand robot helicopter design.
What if Netflix brought in its own flock of drones for its DVD and Blu-ray delivery service? In a dystopian/hilarious future, it might look a little something like this:
- Here’s what’s new on Amazon Prime Video in May 2018
- Amazon’s delivery drones could hitch rides on trucks to save power
- Shopping at Amazon’s Go stores feels like a heist. And we love it
- Why Ring’s porch-protecting cameras made it a no-brainer acquisition for Amazon
- Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Phones will no longer come with lockscreen ads
