Sour Bangkok launches creepy 'world's first couples phone' to promote new Netfix series

Netflix_you1.jpgNetflix introduce has introduced the world's first couples phone in Thailand. It comes with the creepiest features allowing you to stalk your love one.

The concept is the brainchild of independent Thai agency, Sour Bangkok, to spark conversation before the Netflix premier of "YOU" - the new drama thriller series.

The concept turns the behaviors of "Joe", a creepy stalker, into the creepy features on a couples phone prototype to engage people these days that their mobile phone is part of their life.

Netflix_you2.jpg"YOU" is the story of a New York bookstore manager who falls in love with a customer named "Beck" and quickly becomes obsessed with her. He uses the mobile phone and social media as tools to get close and break her privacy. Finally, he successfully transforms himself from stalker to boyfriend while doing whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles standing in his way - even if it means murder.

The couples phone prototype is launched to question what if phones actually existed that allowed lovers to invade your privacy.
