Watch: Ed Asner and Doris Roberts Give 'Netflix and Chill' a Shot in 'Funny or Die' Short

Ed Asner just might get it on with Doris Roberts as Asner explains the cultural phrase on everyone’s lips, “Netflix and Chill.” All the young people are doing it, so why not them! As they browse the Netflix library and contemplate watching “Narcos,” “Sense8” and “Columbo”– or as Asner refers to the latter show, “Columbone” — the pair are hilarious in this lampoon of the “Netflix and Chill” cultural phenomenon.

As funny as this clip is, Asner takes a moment to get somewhat serious and question the validity of “Netflix and Chill,” adding clarity to our latest cultural obsession — or maybe he’s wrong and is simply out of touch with the zeitgeist. This “Funny or Die” clip is timely and funny, check it out!
