Netflix just made it safe for companies to joke about sex on Twitter

Netflix has made it chill for companies to joke about sex, at least on Twitter.

Hijacking and tweaking an existing meme relating to double entendres, the company's Twitter feed on Thursday asked followers for things "you can say during sex but also when you manage a brand twitter account."And boy did it get a response.

Despite the almost not-suitable-for-work theme, managers of other corporate Twitter accounts - not to mention numerous everyday people - replied by the dozens. Among them were representatives of Arby's:

The meme is premised on finding double entendres that work in multiple situations. For the joke to work, all you need is a place or situation, a stock photo to go with it, and the stock photo of a man and woman seemingly engaged in intimate relations that's been central to the theme.
Here are some of the many iterations of the meme so far:
