A very clever person – either a spray-can wielding bandit or the world’s best PR professional – has tagged a Netflix sign near the company’s California headquarters with “and chill.”
“Netflix and Chill,” of course, is an implicit term for sexual actions during or following the viewing of a program on Netflix.
The incredible act quickly spread through the social mediascape, with reported origins on Imgur. Someone even claims to have captured the person who tagged the sign:

Though the origins of the term are obscure, it’s already well past the tipping point and might as well be considered a direct inquiry for sex. Indeed, it was a fantastic euphemism with effectiveness that spanned just a few short months.
The trouble with ‘Netflix and chill’ as a euphemism is, it’s much harder to find someone with whom to do that than to have sex.

Many people have expressed that it’s about time this modification was adapted to the logo, while a few – those upset about children on their lawn – are getting pretty wiled up about vandalism, criminal behaviour, destruction of property, etc.
The graffiti has since been removed, officially signalling the end of Netflix and Chill.
