Tattoo gets man free year of Netflix

March 10, 2013 at 5:39 PM

LOS GATOS, Calif., March 10 (UPI) -- An Indiana man got a Netflix tattoo on his torso and after posting it to Twitter, company representatives saw it and gave him a free year's subscription.

Myron Robinson of Kokomo said he's always been a big fan of the company and as an inside joke with a few friends, got the tattoo. He tweeted a picture, saying, "@netflix put me on a commercial I love you guys."

KGO-TV, San Francisco, said Netflix responded, retweeting "NO WAY! Free year for you."

A year's subscription to Netflix costs about $96, the San Francisco Chronicle said.

Reed Hastings, chief executive officer for the Los Gatos, Calif., company, also posted Robinson's story on his Facebook page.
