To help celebrate the launch of the second season of the Netflix Original, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the streaming video company has created two tools to help you “Kimmy-fy” your online experience.
The first is a reskin of the Netflix user UI when visiting the site on your computer. Head over to Netflix, search for Kimmy Schmidt and press the KIMMY-FY button to give your Netflix a very Kimmy Schmidt looking makeover. The UI change stays active until you click the button again, and has some very colorful results, complete with sparkly mouse trails.
Secondly, Netflix has also created a Chrome extension which replaces bad words and phrases with cheerful Kimmy Schmidt alternatives. It also translates popular Internet speak into Kimmy Schmidt interpretations.
Word changes are automatically highlighted pink on webpages visited, and users may hover over changes to view the original word or phrase. So whether your coworker is being a real B-I-T of a J-E-R-K over electronic mail, or your friends on Facebook post a lot of fudged up sugar, the Kimmifier will keep it happy with a #hashbrown filtered browsing experience that is sure to make you smile until you feel better. Download now to “Kimmy-fy” your browser, and view the internet through the rose colored lens that makes Kimmy Schmidt UN-breakable!
Some of the words we’ve discovered replaced with pink highlighted alternatives so far include Apple (replaced with Macintosh), Internet (Tubes), Kimmy (Kimbecile), comfortable (comfy-wumfy), browsing (Surfing the worldwide web), f*** (fudge), lips/mouth (kissing hole), criminal (Stranger Danger), and sh*t (sugar) — among others.
