Netflix has released a video teaser of its coming of age DJ movie, XOXO and we couldn’t stop laughing

It’s not often we care at all about the US EDM market (or EDM at all), but for all its cliche’s, drops, molly, candy kids and a misplaced youth in unison to a $250 ticket to listen to what can only be described as someone placing a pot on their head and bashing it with a ladle, Hollywood just can’t help themselves to cash in on a scene that has long been and gone. (I mean, let’s look at just how well We Are Your Friends fared at the box office)

Enter the new Netflix EDM themed movie XOXO, naturally another story of a bedroom DJ feeling the music and going on a journey of self discovery (just as cliche’d as the music itself). We can’t say too much about it right now, as we haven’t been able to stop laughing. As the official press release notes say

“XOXO is a coming-of-age ensemble film about a group of 20-somethings on a crazy adventure to the biggest EDM festival in America, XOXO. The film follows six strangers whose lives collide in one frenetic, dream-chasing, hopelessly romantic night. At the center is Ethan, a young DJ who gets a last minute slot to perform after his tracks go viral online days before the festival. This is a huge opportunity… if he can just make it there in one piece.”

We will let you make up your own mind…… enjoy
