Netflix answered many fans’ prayers when they green lit the latest season for the cult television show Arrested Development. Fans have been eagerly awaiting to see new images or clips of the upcoming fourth season, but Netflix hasn’t dished that out just yet. Instead the marketing team decided to go a cuter route having to do with a Mr. Tobias Fünke.
For those of you who have a Netflix account, you can find the easter egg yourself. First, go on their site and search for a movie with the word “blue” in the title. As the search results are pulled up, you’ll see some blue handprints and smudge on the side of the screen. Once you’ve clicked on that, you’ll be tossed into the middle of the first episode of season 2, titled “The One Where Michael Leaves.” There it shows us one of the many iconic scenes from the series where Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) discovers that his brother-in-law Tobias (David Cross) has painted himself completely blue, and in the process, has left his painted fingerprints all over the place. Yes, this is the scene where he says the great line “I just blue myself.” He really needs to learn how to phrase better.
We imagine from the clever advertising that Netflix’s marketing team will be planting more easter eggs like this around their site. If that’s the case, we figure the first clips will probably be found on their site in some sneaky way. We can’t wait to see it.
