Netflix’s brand new series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo has been the answer to many kicking off their 2019 just right – and if you haven’t seen it, you’re definitely missing out.

In the series Marie Kondo, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, introduces many families in the USA to the realm of decluttering with her mantra of “sparking joy” – if the item doesn’t spark joy, it’s time to say goodbye.

Those watching the series are normally introduced with a sweet image of Japanese organisation consultant Marie when logging into Netflix. Something resembling the picture above.

However, the other evening some were in for quite a surprise when they saw Marie Kondo’s vibe had changed. The image promoting the show was not of a sweet Marie, but a gunman holding an AK-47 in the desert.

The fault was pointed out by William Hanson on Twitter, who wrote: “Either there’s a Netflix glitch or Marie Kondo’s methods have escalated”.


Since then the tweet has gone viral – with over 50,000 retweets and 200,000 likes – and people are totally losing it over Marie Kondo’s new “methods”.

Of course, the memes shortly followed.




Is it wrong that these memes are sparking joy for us?
