Netflix’s latest hit show, “Obsession,” features a sex scene with just a man and pillow … and it’s freaking out the general public, who are thinking twice about their next check-in.
Richard Armitage‘s character, William, gets into an affair with his son’s fiancée — played by actress Charlie Murphy — and at one point in the mini series, he ransacks a hotel room that she had just stayed in … desperately looking for any lingering sign of her left behind.
Eventually, he finds a pillow on the bed where she slept and picks up her scent … which then launches him into a full-blown sex act where he’s going at it with the cushion, literally. The dude sniffs it up, bites it and humps it like a dog — as if it was the actual person.
That’s where Netflix fans seem to have drawn the line on the kinkiness … several took to Twitter to express their disgust, joking that they’d never look at another hotel pillow the same way again. That’s probably a good rule … but “Obsession” takes it to a new level.
Of course, a lot of folks are joking with their gross-out takes — posting funny memes/GIFs to react. Some, it seems, even thought it was pretty hot! To each their own, we suppose.
Here’s the crazy part … the dude himself, Armitage, actually says this scene was largely improvised — which just speaks to how good of an actor he is — seeing how damn into it he was on camera. He explains that they were going to do a lipstick thing, but thought the pillow would be more realistic and jarring … considering how much of a sex fiend the character is.
It’s your modern-day ‘Unfaithful’ … turned into TV … and people just can’t get enough. Like they say, sex sells … that never changes in Hollywood, even in the era of Twitter.
