Netflix’s red-hot show 'You' features a very small, very niche Philly shoutout

Blink, or grab something from the fridge, and you could miss it

The stickers, in all their glory.

There’s a television show called “You” — yes, we’re clearly running out of TV show names — that everyone's talking about. We're sure you've heard of it.

(Netflix makes it hard to officially find out what's actually being watched in a given week, but just look at this Google Trends graph of searches for “You Netflix” and you’ll see what we mean.)

After an underwhelming first season on Lifetime, “You” brought its second season to Netflix, which basically led directly to the bump. 

“You” is going to be a Netflix original from now on, which means (if it continues to be regarded as a solid television show) it’ll probably be one of those names you keep hearing, like “Stranger Things” and “Black Mirror”, for years to come.

What makes this neat for Philadelphians? A pair of stickers on the laptop of the show’s character Beck:

That’s right: Beck is canonically a fan of East Passyunk art house/shirt factory/general Philly-stuff-making collective South Fellini.

Of the two Philly stickers, the one on the left is South Fellini’s classic logo, while the one on the right is a sticker for South Fellini’s 2018 horror movie “American Exorcist”, which received a release on Prime Video and can be watched right here.

It’s super small and super niche, but it’s always fun to see little Philly secrets peppered throughout pop culture.
