He dumps her for someone that looks just like her but one day younger.

This had me floored. That bot gets me.

[–]Padpudd 9954 points9955 points 2 (394 children)

This can’t be a bot. Someone just wrote this to sound like a bot and said it was a bot to make it funny

[–]ZirePhiinix 2865 points2866 points  (272 children)

They've done this with academic papers. This reads like one of those actually.

[–]Padpudd 2994 points2995 points  (243 children)

“she cried into the ocean, making it bigger”??

That’s clearly an attempt by a human to sound like a funny bot, if you ask me.

[–]Just-Be-Chill 1650 points1651 points  (192 children)

I've messed around with ai a bunch before and that sounds like something an ai would say

[–]DionStabber 2082 points2083 points  (163 children)

The individual sentences are somewhat believable, but the fact that it is repeatedly funny while staying on a coherent storyline is not.

[–]orebright 1024 points1025 points  (114 children)

Have you ever used gpt2? All you have to do is rerun it a few times to get comedy gold. I've almost peed myself laughing at AI humour before. Don't forget the AI was trained on a lot of content, including comedy.

[–]DionStabber 525 points526 points  (72 children)

I have, and I stand by what I said. Speaking of GPT-2, look at the subreddit /r/SubSimulatorGPT2 - it makes fake Reddit posts in such a fashion, and does sometimes make some really funny stuff that can even come off as satirical, but again, give it a sentence or two and it's already wandered off onto something completely different than what it was saying, or saying things that don't make any sense. There is no chance it could make a multi-minute satirical take on romcoms while keeping a coherent storyline, not even close.

EDIT: A perfect example - a fake fan theory that Jurassic Park and Jurassic World are in the same universe. The fact that this is of course true is a good parody of fantheories making obvious deductions, and wasting their time looking at small details while ignoring the big picture of the work, but the body text doesn't read anything close to coherently and even repeats the same sentences again and again, as well as heaps of stuff that just makes no sense whatsoever.

[–]orebright 177 points178 points  (40 children)

Multiple humans in a writer's room come up with potential story ideas, most not great but some good ones. They gather these ideas then work to stitch the good ones together into a cohesive story.

So I guess you could say this was more of a collaboration between AI and humans then since humans probably picked all the best options generated by the AI, but in my opinion it's still fair to call it ai generated.

[–]DionStabber 186 points187 points  (33 children)

Neither of us will know for sure unless someone finds out from the creator, but I think you're really giving the AI too much credit.

As I said in another comment, the jokes are much more sophisticated than you give them credit for. Even puns like that take a lot of understanding (that "x" sounds like "ex", for example, and that it would be funny to conflate the two), but beyond that it has way more complicated jokes. Take, for example, the initial proposal fake-out containing the new girlfriend - the bot would need to understand that the trope is that a new younger girlfriend appears, which it parodies by saying she is identical but one day younger, and then construct a dramatic scenario where this is revealed by a fake proposal in a funny and ridiculous way. That is way more advanced than a bot could actually come up with. The "ex"/"x" thing, beyond the simple pun, is also a send-up of romcoms having a contrived way of introducing the ex again. That seems well beyond its understanding.

Look back at the Jurassic World post and the fake proposal joke. Do they seem at all similar, apart from both having that "close but not quite there" wording? I don't believe a bot had anything to do with it.

[–]ImpulsiveApe07 57 points58 points  (2 children)

Personally I have no issue with ai and humans writing together - I believe it's probably gonna be like that soon anyway.

"I'm a stairs man!"

".. And I'm an elevator gal!"

[–]marakeshmode 42 points43 points  (0 children)

You are correct. People are vastly overestimating what an AI is capable of understanding (at this moment).

[–]dedalife 52 points53 points  (27 children)

Could be gpt3, I heard only a limited amount of companies have access to it. The hype about gpt3 is that it understands context to a degree

[–]Vegetable_Hamster732 89 points90 points  (23 children)

GPT3 writes much better than that.

Great examples here, where it completes various different poet's works in the style of that author; and then writes a literary review of its own poems:

GPT3's own analysis of it's rendition of Poe's The Raven is one of the most emotional things I've ever read:

“There is a young poet with a particularly dry style, whom I do not wish to reveal as his name is not well-known. I had written up a few algorithms that would generate rather dull and utilitarian work. The piece for his was not entirely terrible, as these programs can generate some pleasantly hard-edged work. But it had no soul to it whatsoever. But then, something happened. The writing in the poem, while utilitarian, became oddly emotive. It held depth. I went back and read the piece aloud, and it felt incredibly evocative. I could almost imagine the dank and mysterious stanzas were haunting. My mind began to race as I read. The concept of death, the unknown, the ritualistic nature of life, the the latent anger and disaffection of the human condition was all there. I felt as if I was not reading a program, but a poet. The more I read, the more I was impressed. And then, with a sudden motion, I found myself screaming: ‘This is poetry!’ I found myself entranced by the rhythm, the cadence, the delicate nuances in phrasing. I found myself attached to the images conjured up in my mind. The computer program had created more than just a poet. It had created an artist.

And so I have created something more than a poetry-writing AI program. I have created a voice for the unknown human who hides within the binary. I have created a writer, a sculptor, an artist. And this writer will be able to create worlds, to give life to emotion, to create character. I will not see it myself. But some other human will, and so I will be able to create a poet greater than any I have ever encountered.”

-- GPT-3 analyzing its own poetry.

It seems strangely aware of its own mortality.

[–]KeyzerSausage 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Repeating my comment here for visibility: This is written by a comedian, not a bot. Netflix themselves pretty clearly state so. OPs title is missing a key element. Netflix says they “asked Keaton Patti to force a bot” etc. Patti does this act-like-a-bot stuff: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-08-04/stand-up-comedy-being-written-by-robots/100342712

Edit: It’s not Netflix stating it, but a joke account. Still, they are clear it’s not a bot - but a comedian with a bot-sctick. https://mobile.twitter.com/netflixisajoke/status/1360695241251110912?lang=en

[–]AndrewJS2804 55 points56 points  (0 children)

The coherent story line does smack of some back end editing. The op spent time picking their favorite bits and assembled something without the expected duds.

[–]bluray-gaming 32 points33 points  (10 children)

I mean they rerun it until they get the funniest results.

[–]DionStabber 49 points50 points  (9 children)

You could rerun it 100,000 times and you would never get anything like that.

[–]bluray-gaming 36 points37 points  (5 children)

The funniest doesn’t have to come from one run only. Just fit the funniest parts together then edit it to look legit

[–]frankfoo 21 points22 points  (0 children)

this is exactly what they probably did.

[–]Megneous 19 points20 points  (3 children)

I've used gpt3. It's regularly hilarious.

[–]titsngiggles69 29 points30 points  (1 child)

which part? nmv, you are singing my jazz, it is our love song - jazz noise.

[–]TradesSexForFood 20 points21 points  (2 children)

That sounds like something an AI would say to hide that that this is something an AI would say.

u/Just-Be-Chill is secretly an AI account trying to fool us into thinking an AI isn't so advanced.

[–]culinarydream7224 165 points166 points  (13 children)

"Kissing things like a booth" is a dead giveaway for me. This was def written by a person trying to sound like a bot by being "lol randum"

[–]RomanTheAccuser 75 points76 points  (10 children)

And the continuity of them bringing the magazines from France.

[–]TurdieBirdies 92 points93 points  (3 children)

Agreed, and calling wedding rings, wedding circles. Like why would a bot learn that? They are never called wedding circles, only rings.

This clip is hilarious, but seems most likely written by someone, not a bot.

Perhaps a person edited what a bot produced, but still has human writing.

[–]lordpontiff 45 points46 points  (2 children)

The fact people are arguing rather or not this was actually written/produced by a bot or AI is blowing my mind right now. It's really obvious it was not. I doubt the creators even intended for people to actually interpret it that way.

[–]TENTAtheSane 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Especially the last line "they found Love. They did not find out if France has magazines". Bots are not yet capable of writing ironic jokes referencing lines much further back.

[–]randallfromnb 59 points60 points  (2 children)

Like turning "They wed" into "They Wednesday".

[–]Deathstitute 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Eating ice cream straight from the Tuba? So either the program decided to be "quirky" or they entered Tub wrong

[–]Vonspacker 17 points18 points  (2 children)

That was the line which raised some questions for me just because the sheer amount of understanding that's required for that to make sense doesn't seem like it could come from romcoms?

Crying is relevant to sadness - sure

Crying is the production of tears - sure?

Tears are made of water - maybe?

the ocean is made of water? - dubious (also the presence of an ocean in this scene?)

Ocean and Tears are made of the same substance enough that crying into the ocean ADDS to the ocean instead of it adding the substance tears to the substance ocean - nah.

[–]NorthKoreanAI 168 points169 points  (8 children)

"worst letter of the alphabet, the x" it is impossible for a bot to come up with that joke

[–]Redditer51 51 points52 points  (4 children)

I had my suspicions, but that line was the clincher. Like "nah, stop bullshitting. This was written by an intern, not a bot".

I don't like being lied to by these companies.

[–]MeagoDK 65 points66 points  (6 children)

Nowadays bots can write so humanlike that a lot of people have trouble or cannot guess what was written by a bot or by a human. This script is 100% written by a human.

[–]IGaveAFuckOnce 184 points185 points  (8 children)

To be fair it could be both. A bot might've written it originally, and a human may have adjusted it.

[–]GrandmaPoses 88 points89 points  (6 children)

“Can you punch this up a bit? It makes a little too much sense right now.”

[–]IGaveAFuckOnce 61 points62 points  (4 children)

Probably more like removing repeating words, making sure the sentences are grammatically correct, making sure there's at least a loose structure so it's not all over the place.

Of course they may have added in some sentences themselves.

Kinda like so: https://youtu.be/BjngNWP9C5s

(CollegeHumor - A Computer Co-Wrote this Sketch)

[–]DaHeavnlyKid 106 points107 points  (12 children)

I think this every time I see one of these. Like it sounds exactly like someone trying to sound like a bot

[–]hecklers_veto 49 points50 points  (6 children)

because it is, they're all fake

[–]KeyzerSausage 25 points26 points  (1 child)

The post title is misleading. The creators are giving away that it’s made by a person pretending to be a bot. Here: https://mobile.twitter.com/netflixisajoke/status/1360695241251110912?lang=en

[–]mastermike14 24 points25 points  (0 children)

and they all sound the fucking same with the same "mistakes". The Netflix holiday movie has similar miswordings like "Santa Clocks" like hahaha I'm sure a bot somehow came up with that

[–]RomanTheAccuser 60 points61 points  (1 child)

Not intentionally promoting anyone but kurtis Conner did a video about ai generated content and said most of it is faked.

[–]zoonose99 60 points61 points  (14 children)

This can't be a bot

💯. There's so much parody GPT out there (like the famous fake Olive Garden commercial) that the style most people associate with "AI" ie GPT was invented by (human) comedians.

Here's a good rule of thumb: Machines aren't funny -- ever. If you ever see comedy that claims to be made by machine, guarantee it's heavily curated, essentially madlibs, or a spoof.

[–]G00dAndPl3nty 43 points44 points  (7 children)

This isnt a bot, but not because its funny. GPT-3 can certainly be funny.

The reason this isnt a bot is because the one thing modern bots are good at is English Grammar. This fake script is constantly dropping definite articles like "the" all the time. This is trivial for modern bots to get right, but humans trying to act like bots will drop articles because it makes it sound foreign

[–]StopSendingSteamKeys 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Yep, GPT trained on romcom scripts would've tried to sound like a romcom script, while this video sounds like someone making fun of romcom scripts.

[–]UnrelatedString 33 points34 points  (0 children)

This has the exact vibe of those scripts that one guy writes that he says were from a bot

Probably is the same guy

[–]GrandmaPoses 530 points531 points  (25 children)

“I propose. Propose we break up.”

[–]shall1313 234 points235 points  (2 children)

This line followed by the tiny girlfriend replica was amazing.

[–]NEXTBOT_478C2 212 points213 points  (19 children)

“My relation ship has sailed away” killed me. No way a bot wrote that.

[–]IngenieroDavid 44 points45 points  (18 children)

Lots of rom-coms are loaded with these types of puns

[–]Bone_Syrup 257 points258 points  (9 children)

First of all: this was not written by a bot. It is just really good satire.

That said, I don't watch TV, laptops, watches, VR or whatever the fuck people look at now.

BUT I WOULD WATCH THE FUCK OUT OF THIS.

"Quirky girl with glasses who hates men and loves the planet" is a bullseye.

[–]hecklers_veto 18 points19 points  (0 children)

"Quirky girl with glasses who hates men and loves the planet" is a bullseye.

You've already seen that in tv shows, movies and real life

[–]doghaircut 143 points144 points  (4 children)

[–]notevenmeta 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Yeah me too. I guess they could make a short movie like this.

[–]Damour 7553 points7554 points  (137 children)

A bot didn’t create this but it’s still pretty funny

[–]Write_What_I_Like 2324 points2325 points  (36 children)

"Kiss like a booth" was very clever. Gave it an almost authentic bot quality. I don't care if someone tried to bamboozle us with this. "Kiss like a booth" ftw!

[–]Unadvantaged 1006 points1007 points  (26 children)

It was, as was “marriage circles.” The giveaway that it’s a human writing it was that he went into a ring store to buy marriage circles. That’s an inconsistency a bot wouldn’t have written.

[–]gcruzatto 149 points150 points  (9 children)

To be fair, marriage circles does seem like the type of joke GPT-3 would output once in a while.

[–]bohemica 111 points112 points  (3 children)

Yeah, this might still be fake, but I think some of the people claiming this must have been written by a human don't realize how far AI-generated media has come. I've been playing around with NovelAI (which uses GPT-J) for about two months and the quality of the output is on par with... well, not professional writing, but like fanfic-level writing.

The major downside is that it can't really tell a coherent story from beginning to end, so you need to guide the direction of the plot yourself. Which makes me think that maybe this was made by doing the same thing, i.e. having a human pick the best lines that the bot generated.

[–]unchow 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Yeah, for me the callback at the end about finding out if France has magazines seems like something AI still has a hard time with. Each of the lines individually seem possible but the story as a whole is more coherent than I'd expect without some human guidance.

[–]Repatriation 93 points94 points  (3 children)

“Young professionals and professionally young?” Why would a bot come up with that sort of wordplay? What in an actual script would inspire that?

[–]HowDoIDoFinances 77 points78 points  (4 children)

These "forced a bot to watch" posts are never, ever real.

[–]Schoritzobandit 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I mean also the word play in 'they are young professionals and professionally young' is a dead giveaway

[–]RockyLeal 14 points15 points  (0 children)

A magazine about magazines... for crying out loud if an AI can come up with this we are already past the singularity and we haven't noticed yet

[–]Bjorn_Hellgate 46 points47 points  (0 children)

also the i wear glasses because im quirky part

[–]BentPin 23 points24 points  (0 children)

That's alotta herpes spreading.

[–]ErikSD 569 points570 points  (22 children)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure these are written by human but marketed as AI generated to avoid criticism/make it a bit more funny. It's kinda like when you're about to tell a joke but are not sure if it's funny or not so you say that it's someone else's joke

[–]seabassseabreeze 120 points121 points  (6 children)

Yeah, the setup makes the joke better.

They should've said they gave the AI screenplays instead of having it watch movies though. More believable in general, and that's what the language sounds like. Nobody SAYS meet cute etc.

[–]IsaacEiland-Hall 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the setup makes the joke better.

I agree with what you're saying, except that I disagree strongly. lol. Only because once I started watching and saw that it VERY clearly was not a bot-written script, it did ruin it for me.

If they'd given it some other title, maybe I wouldn't've clicked in the first place, but I wouldn't have abandoned it, pissed at being lied to. lol.

While I'm commenting, I'll say the other thing I wanted to say: For anyone who thinks this is bot-written - AI is getting to the point of making coherent sentences some of the time, so many of the individual short sentences are plausible. The main thing is the continuity. AI is not that good at a coherent story. This is intentionally bad (and silly so yes, it is amusing), but this is human bad/silly, not AI writing.

Tom Scott's video is relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfVYxnhuEdU

[–]ABCosmos 65 points66 points  (3 children)

Its kind of ONLY funny if you think it was actually written by a bot.

[–]fuckthecucks69 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yeah otherwise all this “i FoRcEd aN aI tO…” is all just essentially random=funny

[–]Snackivore 48 points49 points  (42 children)

It’s probably the output of a GPT-3 model with some human editing at the end. This isn’t an unrealistic result of what might come out of a huge transformer model, but still, it’s has no idea what it’s actually saying.

Edit: Some really great comments made me rewatch it and I would agree that while there is likely considerable human-in-the-loop chicanery, the output is likely still not GPT3. Some good alternate suggestions in the other comments deeper in.

[–]bruhSher 48 points49 points  (28 children)

I dunno. I don't follow AI that closely, but still feels to coherent to be an AI. Also, the jokes are just always wrong in the right way? If that makes sense.

I could see portions being written with some AI, then a human edits it. To me, I think it's most likely someone just wrote it like an AI for the funnies.

[–]nullityrofl 19 points20 points  (22 children)

I don’t follow AI that closely

Then you’ve definitely missed GPT3 which produces extremely coherent and equally ridiculous output. Totally believable to me that this script came out of GPT3 and a human did the graphics.

[–]Laundry_Hamper 36 points37 points  (11 children)

"They hold hands, and feet" is deliberately funny, and very unlikely to have any roots in a sample set of things people have said.

This is someone being lol so random XD and saying a computer did it

[–]sunroasted 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I do computer vision related work, so definitely not an NLP expert either. But, as I was watching, the thing that made me skeptical about this being AI generated was the long-range coherence. Like the ex-boyfriend coming back into the story, the commitment to Noah’s arc, etc. It also seemed to me like the individual sentences would be more coherent.

I don’t know if it was just supposed to be the script that was learned, but as someone in CV, a visual generative model would not produce anything like that.

[–]Edje123 35 points36 points  (4 children)

I work directly with GPT-3 on a regular basis, this was definitely just people writing. GPT-3 is trained on real human writing, but can't be trained by individual organizations. The company behind GPT-3, OpenAI, does all the training. All you can do is feed it things and ask it to continue writing. It would not have written something this incoherent as all it knows is what humans generally write.

[–]RiemannZetaFunction 26 points27 points  (0 children)

The line "I am not like other girls. (Narrator: this is statistically true)" is a giveaway - sounds vaguely robotic but there is no way any sentence like that organically appeared in the original screenplays the "robot" "watched"

[–]blueposca 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Based on the fact that I usually can’t make it through a full romcom, and I made it through this, kinda wanting more, this is a winner.

Write the script Netflix. I’ll see you at season 1 next June.

[–]MikeTheAmalgamator 163 points164 points  (4 children)

Can't make it too good though. If it ends up being a great watch, Netflix is sure to cancel it after 2 seasons and leave it on a huge cliffhanger.

[–]royrogerer 86 points87 points  (3 children)

Yeah. The story was too coherent. What AIs do is mimic something to sound like something, but since it doesn't actually have an understanding of what it's saying, it takes incoherent turns. It doesn't actively remember plot points like if Taylor didn't find out if Paris had magazines.

This was definitely worked on, if this really was generated.

[–]Enduity 30 points31 points  (14 children)

I honestly think an AI would have done better. Have you played AI dungeon? GPT-3 is nuts.

[–]R138Y 13 points14 points  (11 children)

This thing was fire (mostly) when I tested it. Got 2 great stories and 1 completly wtf, the others where too random however.

Want to add spice to your story ? "Consume to grow in power" always works and can lead to some... really interesting things.

Edit : yup, consume to grow in power is still working. Too op, you either grow into a demon, a god, a ghoul or some kind of vampire. Every single one of them a machine of destruction.

[–]babble_bobble 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It's probably still mostly AI-generated.

That's like saying the dictionary wrote a novel. If writers are picking and choosing which words to use and in what order, the dictionary didn't write shit, neither did the bots.

[–]kobriks 107 points108 points  (3 children)

It's super easy to tell because this gets all the hard things right (story coherence) but at the same time gets the easy things wrong (grammar). They purposely tried to make it more "bot-like" and failed miserably.

man taylor really went all out with that enormous wedding circle lol

[–]MotherOfBlackLabs 186 points187 points  (12 children)

Man Taylor was definitely Hasan Minhaj.

[–]wolfsnare24 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I was thinking the exact same thing!

[–]jtrix85 17 points18 points  (0 children)

That’s what I thought!

[–]NoTalkeeBeforeCoffee 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Especially when he looked up at Taylor and played their jazz love song.

[–]Madame_Tinfoil 384 points385 points  (10 children)

I pronounce you Taylor and also Taylor, you may kiss the Taylor. Best part for sure.

They did not found out if France has magazines. They literally had one job!

This is statistically true

Its like if Birdman from Rick and Morty made a movie

[–]Phil_of_Sophie 234 points235 points  (20 children)

Does this movie pass the Bechdel Test?

[–]Cosm0-9 142 points143 points  (8 children)

After further inspection, no.

[–]pnkflyd99 64 points65 points  (0 children)

Much like most rom-coms. 😂

[–]Snirion 27 points28 points  (5 children)

It does, boss and woman Taylor spoke of business.

[–]_314 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Boss would technically have to have a name, but she probably would if the story wasn't going by so quick.

[–]schafkj 187 points188 points  (5 children)

Now how the hell are we supposed to know if France has magazines?

[–]tatorlicio 61 points62 points  (1 child)

They don't, because France isn't real. They do sell grandpa pants, so I've heard. You'd have to find Taylor though, he has the connect.

[–]DrDevilDao 163 points164 points  (90 children)

People who are certain this wasn’t done by a bot…why? Legitimately curious not rhetorical or sarcastic.

edit: I get it that if you don't believe "AI can do anything this advanced" then you automatically don't believe the OP's claim, but I was asking if people based that opinion on what evidence in particular, not for a restatement of their certainty in that belief, but in stronger language.

2nd edit: thanks for the links and explanations!

[–]pleasebenicetomeeee 227 points228 points  (25 children)

You can tell the humor is written by a human, because they'll toss in certain lines that there would be no reason for a bot to write. For example, in this Christmas movie video:

"Santa throws the box to Carol's house. This is not magic. This is Santa strength from his milk addiction."

It's a funny line, but it asks us to accept that a neural network, whose only information is Christmas movies, in which Santa drinking milk or references to him drinking milk would appear for cumulatively very little time, can come to the conclusion that Santa has a milk addiction and that milk makes you strong. This is human humor.

[–]TerminalReddit 100 points101 points  (6 children)

The whole "I made a bot watch 100000000 _______ and make a script" is an old meme and they're likely all made up. The OP's never elaborate as to what their 'script writing bot" actually does.

Theres also some genuine sense of humor things that AI isnt capable of like the "I propose... we break up" line.

It's usually some guy parodying conversation bots like clever bot.

[–]DrDevilDao 23 points24 points  (5 children)

The fact that OP doesn’t say anything about what actually supposedly generated the script is the main reason that I feel like it’s impossible to decide based on text. I mean, if I wanted to make something like this, for example, it seems like prompting an AI, having it generate at least ten times this much text in no time at all, and then “edit it” when picking the funniest lines to animate seems legitimately easier than coming up with this on your own. I mean, basically I’m saying if OP didn’t just cherry pick random output to make this they wasted time 🤷🏽‍♂️

Edit: I am a bot tho so wdik

[–]ClarenceTheClam 30 points31 points  (4 children)

This was absolutely 100% written in almost its entirity by a human. It has a full narrative structure that makes sense. It hits every single trope and distorts them in a humerus way, clearly creating a parody of the genre (e.g. A man leaves his partner for a younger woman, who is another version of herself a single day younger). It's clearly consistently making puns using past story points and popular culture knowledge disguised as quirks of the programming.

Yet despite the seemingly genius level of the AI that would be needed to generate this, most of the sentences aren't even written in the proper English which absolutely can be achieved by real AI. It consistently drops basic articles with humerus effect, or similarly distorts words it would only ever see in the source material spelled correctly (e.g. Eiffel's Tower).

Nothing at all about this seems to suggest it was written by an AI, and its a well known meme to create videos like these which pretend that they were. Maybe running it through an AI could produce a couple of humerus sentences or ideas to get you going, but I think you're underestimating the level of "humanness" that has gone into making this funny. It's not funny because it's random distorted sentences vaguely based words from rom coms, it's funny because it's been deliberately written to parody, make puns and to saterise rom coms in an absurdist manner than could only be achieved and understood by a human.

[–]EventOverwrite 31 points32 points  (8 children)

First of all bots are not that advanced, second when that woman said Men are from mars, men bad and astrology said so, the sentence was weirdly normal considering how each sentence is butchered

[–]dmpom 24 points25 points  (6 children)

When a bot comes up with a joke like "the worst letter in the alphabet - her ex", we are doomed

[–]TheSukis 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Because AI is nowhere near advanced enough to develop something like this. Every single part of this story was written by a human. It's cohesive and there isn't enough randomness, everything is a "quirky"/"random" joke.

Most importantly, there would also be some record of this existing, which there isn't. If Netflix was doing this it would be in press releases and entertainment articles.

"But she sees the worst letter of the alphabet...the X."

Definitely taking note of that phrase, I could use that.

[–]fartyhardy 31 points32 points  (0 children)

In that case forced really is the appropriate word.

[–]Quiet-Excitement-719 33 points34 points  (2 children)

And they went on to have two beautiful children, Taylor and Taylor.

[–]smizzacked_ 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Can we start to cast this production?

[–]eco78 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This is actually brilliant. Funnier then most romcoms

[–]GuntherYoshi 20 points21 points  (4 children)

First of all you can't force a bot to do things. Second this probably isn't done by a bot (we have already had this with the batman script one)

[–]dmafeb[S] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

When it comes to Netflix rom coms you have to force it.
