New ASUN Bill Demands Netflix Streaming Add ‘Boy Meets World’

The Association of Students of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln unanimously passed senate bill number 6 last night demanding that Netflix’s instant streaming service add “Boy Meets World” “as soon as humanly possible.” ASUN President Lane Carr called the bill a step in the right direction for college students everywhere and a “slap in the face” of corporate America.
The bill, which also doubled as a letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, stated that the average UNL college student suffers nearly every week when they look on Netflix and find that “Boy Meets World” is still not streaming instantly, and that the heartbreak is causing students to “actually have to do their homework before 10 pm.”

“Will you, Mr. Hastings, continue to let the average college student wallow in such not-quite-as-good-as-Boy-Meets-World 1990s programming such as ‘Hey Arnold’ or ‘Rugrats’? Or will you finally stop the suffering and add ‘Boy Meets World,’ as we demand you do?” the bill states.

While the bill passed unanimously, several senators believed that a more pressing matter was to demand that HuluPlus get rid of all those commercials for old television shows.

“I agree that we must demand Netflix add “Boy Meets World,” but I think the majority of UNL college students would much prefer that we demand HuluPlus take down those annoying commercials of old TV shows, I tried to watch “Lost” the other day and it still had commercial breaks! “Lost” has been off the air for over a year and a half now. It’s time for the commercials to go,” Senator Nolan Johnson said.

Speaker of the Senate Emily Schlichting disagreed, calling this perhaps her “greatest” moment as Speaker. Schlichting believed that the Senate was finally doing what the UNL community wanted them to do.

“All of these Senators came together to show this corporation that no matter how big or powerful you are, the American college student will complain incessantly if he or she doesn’t get exactly what they want.,” Schlichting said.

“And in the end, that is the heart of what ASUN is all about.”
