Netflix lets you skip the Trump jokes in Meyers’ comedy special

Had your fill of Donald Trump jokes? Well, Netflix is allowing you to skip all of them in Seth Meyers’ comedy special.

During the show, when Myers segues into a string of jokes about the U.S. President a button will appear that permits viewers to bypass the segment entirely.

“It dawned on me that because it was on Netflix, there would be this opportunity to put in technology that would allow people to skip it,” he said. “It was a way to build in the response to anyone who would say, ‘Oh, let me guess there’s going to be jokes about the President,” Myers told CNN.

Netflix calls the idea “clever” and permits viewers to interact in a different way.

The Seth Meyers Netflix Standup Special premieres tomorrow on Netflix.
