Netflix's ingenious viral marketing campaign for "Arrested Development" keeps popping up in unexpected places.
The streaming service has been whipping fans into a frenzy of in-joke euphoria by erecting a Bluth's Original Frozen Banana Stand outside NBCUniversal's New York headquarters (take that Old Media!) and releasing a homoerotic sizzle reel for sexually confused, psychiatrist turned horrendous aspiring actor Dr. Tobias Fünke.
Well, Netflix has New Yorkers with a hankering for potassium covered. Bluth's Original Frozen Bananas has taken up residence on Seamless, the online food delivery site that is a staple of Big Apple eating.
The minimum delivery is a bit steep, checking in at $250,000.00, but oh those offerings. Among the delicacies being served up at Bluth's are the Skip's Scramble, a highly caloric breakfast platter of every available item on the menu at Skip Church's Bistro; boil in the bag dinners, which family patriarch George Bluth Sr. once tried to cook in his attic hot tub with disastrous results; and Chicken Fingers (w/ spicy club sauce), which served as a nice piece of innuendo between G.O.B. Bluth and Lucille Austero.
The new 15-episode season kicks off May 26 on Netflix. Until then, pop some Teamocil.
