Watch: Jason Alexander Mocks Netflix Price Hike On Funny Or Die

“Netflix has raised their prices.  This is literally the worst thing that has ever happened to white people.”  So begins Jason Alexander’s latest video on Funny Or Die—a parody ad for the ‘Netflix Relief Fund’, an organization that lets people donate $6 a month to help upper middle class Americans keep their access to DVDs and streaming.

Ever since Netflix announced their new, more expensive pricing plan, disgruntled Netflix users have been complaining and threatening to cancel their Netflix subscriptions.  This video points out the ridiculousness of these users’ outrage—after all, is $6 a month really worth getting this worked up about?

Jason Alexander’s ‘Netflix Relief Fund’ video compares Netflix to the likes of Hitler and says, “Netflix must be stopped!”  Oh, and he’s also sporting a nice new head of hair.  Check out the video below and let us know what you think.  Do you think the outrage over the Netflix price hike is warranted?  Or is it as ridiculous as this new Funny Or Die video?
