One Direction Fans Are Shading Netflix’s New Drama ‘Kaleidoscope’
Reading Time: 2 minutes
It’s no secret that One Direction fans have eagles eyes when it comes to anything about the band. This week, a 1D-related blunder went viral on Twitter after the premiere of Netflix’s newest heist drama, Kaleidoscope.
Netflix’s Kaleidoscope Commits One Direction Error
Kaleidoscope, which tells the story of a felon on a mission for revenge, has quickly taken over Netflix this month. For those who may not know, the series is narrated from eight different perspectives. Moreover, viewers can watch the same in whatever sequence they want, with each episode being color-coded.
The series’s “Green” episode features a One Direction reference, that completely shocked fans. Within the scene, one of the criminals, Judy (Rosaline Elbay), tries to smuggle SIM cards to her boyfriend, Stan Loomis (Peter Mark Kendall), in prison. When a prison guard catches her, Judy attempts to bribe the guard with tickets to a One Direction concert.
The ticket appeared for a split second, yet fans were able to notice the show’s huge mistake. The tickets are clearly dated for March 6, 2016. If you’re a real One Direction fan, you know where the error lies. This date is completely wrong, since the band was already on hiatus at that point in time.
Furthermore, the ticket layout makes people believe that that the concert would take place on a Saturday. This is another mistake since March 5, 2016, was a Sunday.
Fans Keep Tweeting About The Blunder
After they have watched the “Green” episode, fans instantly tweeted their sentiments about the same. One fan actually had to rewatch that part to confirm the error.
“I HAD to go back on kaleidoscope cause I KNEW I SAW ONE DIRECTION on those damn tickets. 2016? Smh,” on wrote.
For other fans, they had to recount the fact that One Direction had already disbanded. Meanwhile, one user formed his own theory regarding the blunder.
“Everyone thinks they messed up in kaleidoscope with the one direction ticket but what if it was intentional who’s to say she didn’t screw over the guard on purpose,” another tweeted.
Kaleidoscope is now available to watch on Netflix. The streaming service has recently revealed the specific order of the episodes so viewers could consume the same “as a Tarantino film.”
