New York-based comedian Mark Malkoff pays only $8 a month for his Netflix subscription, but he's outdone even the most disciplined 8-flix-at-a-time cinephiles with a month-long challenge he set for himself. How many films can be streamed in 30 days? 252, apparently. Beginning to end, including credits. Watch his Netflix challenge YouTube vid below.
Savvy Netflix recognized the promotional benefit of an outlier like Malkoff, and this week invited him to their headquarters to be celebrated as the most gung-ho Netflix subscriber in the company's history.
Malkoff has a penchant for the obsessive. His past bizarre accomplishments include visiting all 171 Starbucks in Manhattan within 24 hours, living at an Ikea for a week and spending 30 days flying on an AirTran jet.
The most miraculous part of Malkoff's story? He's married. Still married.
