Amazon Prime is onboard the laughter train on Twitter. With many streaming services making fun of their own content, Amazon Prime Video has also joined the bandwagon of the trend. It posted on Twitter that it has added Sooryavansham in its list of Bollywood movies to watch. The streaming giant said that viewers can now watch Sooryavansham, five times a month on their site as well!

It is a fun jibe to the repeat telecast of the film on Indian television by Set Max. It is a joke that almost every week, the yesteryear film starring Amitabh Bacchan has been televised on a repeat basis. The meme is ironic since it’s now available at Amazon Prime Video instead of Sony Liv which is the streaming service of the network that televises the film. People have reacted with a series of memes back at Amazon Prime. They even tweeted a photo of New York with the caption of the popular meme, I’m going to tell my kids this is Mirzapur.

This is not the first time that any streaming service has made fun of its own contents. Netflix put their own twist on the “I will tell my kids” memes. They shared a Neil Armstrong meme with a screenshot from the recent season of Sacred Games.
