Arrested Development has almost (but not quite) enveloped our lives here lately — a number of the nerds around the office have grown to love the show, and may or may not have devoted many hours this weekend to watching (and re-watching, and re-re-watching...) the newest episodes, which went live on Netflix on Sunday.
But the best running gag of the newest set of episodes features a watermark included on the frame below:
What you should be noticing is the "Showstealer Pro Trial Version" watermark, which the creative minds behind the show slapped onto all flashback footage of the first three seasons — as if to say they couldn't get the original footage, and thus had to rip it from a DVD or a similar source. This has enraged people — so much so that there is now a Tumblr dedicated to their anger.
But that's not my favorite part of the uproar — this is:
Why yes, there is a quickly-generated humor site dedicated to the now-frequently-Googled completely-false product, complete with a download button that doesn't do anything.
Great show, folks. Even if the newest season isn't quite as great.
