Netflix has launched a new category, Short-Ass Movies, inspired by Pete Davidson’s latest sketch for Saturday Night Live.
The sketch ends with Rex asking Davidson “How long was The King of Staten Island?”, referencing the 2020 comedy written by and starring Davidson, with a running time over two hours.
@NetflixIsAJoke – the streaming service’s comedy branch – retweeted the sketch, commenting “good idea” and linking to the new category.
Davidson stutters in reply: “It was like two hours and 17 minutes – but we needed all of those minutes.”
