Napflix Aims To Be the Netflix to Lull You To Sleep

first_img What to Stream on Netflix This Weekend11 Other Old-School Nick Shows That Should Get Netflix Movies Stay on target Picture this: it’s 3:00 a.m. and you’re binge-watching the new season of…anything. Watching TV is a good way to keep you up and the stimulation and light is only going to keep you up even longer and Netflix is only getting stronger, producing more content.Napflix is seeking to be Netflix’s opposite. It’s still providing content, but it doesn’t want to keep you awake, lure you into watching 13 episodes of a show’s season. As the name might imply, it wants to put you to sleep.Instead of hosting addictive, stimulating shows and movies, Napflix carries purposely boring, long, and monotonous videos. Victor Guitérrez de Tena and Francesc Pérez created the website as a “Spanish siesta video platform” that finds users “the most silent and sleepy content selection to relax your brain and easily fall asleep.”AdChoices广告“We [were] looking for monotony, nostalgic and relaxing content. It’s all got to have the same pattern and help you to disconnect your mind,” Guitérrez de Tena said. “Napflix understands that boring entertainment exists and we have given a place where you can enjoy it!”So what’s this pattern? According to Napflix, a boring, siesta-friendly video capitalizes on a few factors, namely our nostalgia for videos from childhood and monotony that lulls your brain instead of stimulating it. You’ll get everything from three-hour video from a fish tank, a BBC test card, and a video of a chicken walking through Minecraft.Although the problem with Napflix, which is the same problem that many internet videos have, is that sometimes even the most boring stuff can be enrapturing. Especially when cute animals are involved.We watched this whole hour-long documentary about pandas without falling asleep. So I suppose Napflix sometimes works.last_img
