After Sony decided to release the movie The Interview after all, after it was initially banned due to pressures from North Korea, the company did another unexpected thing – it offered the movie for to be streamed online for $6.
With Christmas being the time of leisure and light family entertainment, this move from Sony received huge attention, mostly in the form of sarcastic jokes on account of the company’s poor security system and also, of course, Kim Jong Un and his fellow North Koreans.
As one Twitter user put it:
Sony has a site where you can watch The Interview for $5.99 and I can’t think of a single reason not to trust them with my credit card info (GuyEndoreKaiser).
The user @Clio_The_Leo echoes the general sentiment:
Thanks to Kim Jong Un, we can all watch #TheInterview in our PJs on Xmas day! You da man Un!
While some have praised the movie and its light entertainment qualities, some feel that it’s a complete flop:
Wow #TheInterview was horrible. The Koreans were actually trying to save us from that awfulness. (@Ecksearoh)
