Netflix's 'Ta-Dum' Intro Almost Included This Animal Sound

Netflix's 'Ta-Dum' Intro Almost Included This Animal Sound

When you start to watch a program on Netflix, you get to hear that familiar “ta-dum” sound just before your program plays – but did you know that it almost included the sound of a goat bleating?

In the recent episode of the “Twenty Thousand Hertz” podcast, Tod Yellin, the streamer’s VP of product, opened up about why it was first included and why it’s not there now.

With the ta-dum sound, Tod shared that he wanted viewers to get the feeling of “‘Wow, I’m going to get a treat, I’m about to get an amazing story, that’s relevant to me, that’s — most importantly — cinematic in my home.’”

So, where and how did the goat bleating come in?

Sound editor Lon Bender was tapped to head the sound, and there were a few different options – including one of the final ones being that of a goat bleating.

“If we were going to do that call-and-response, that creating tension and then resolving it really quickly, I liked the sound of the goat,” Tod shared. “It’s funny, I thought it was quirky. It was our version of (MGM’s) Leo the Lion. For a while we were stuck on it.”

If you’re wondering, below is the sound of a goat bleating:

And here is the final Netflix sound:

Jurnee Smollett Speaks Out About Brother Jussie's Scandal: 'It's Been F---ing Painful'

Jurnee Smollett Speaks Out About Brother Jussie's Scandal: 'It's Been F---ing Painful'

Jurnee Smollett is opening up about her brother Jussie Smollett‘s scandal in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The 33-year-old Birds of Prey actress admits that the accusations against him have been painful for their family.

If you recall, Jussie was accused of faking the lynching attempt on him outside his Chicago home, and while he didn’t face charges because it was tossed out in 2018, it was revived in 2019.

Just recently, his case against the city of Chicago was thrown out.

“It’s been f***ing painful,” Jurnee shared. “One of the most painful things my family’s ever experienced — to love someone as much as we love my brother, and to watch someone who you love that much go through something like this, that is so public, has been devastating.”

She mentions that she personally “was already in a very dark space for a number of reasons, and I’ve tried to not let it make me pessimistic. But everyone who knows me knows that I love my brother and I believe my brother.”

Jurnee added, “I mean, f***, man, I look at him sometimes and I’m like, ‘He’s so strong.’ He’s staying creative, as creatives do…singing, writing, working on music.”

This was the latest bombshell brought up in his case with the city of Chicago.

Lilly Wachowski Confirms 'The Matrix' Is A Trans Story

Lilly Wachowski Confirms 'The Matrix' Is A Trans Story

Lilly Wachowski is finally confirmed that The Matrix is a trans story.

In a virtual interview this week with Netflix Film Club, the filmmaker, who directed the movie with sister Lana, confirmed the speculation about the true meaning of the flicks.

“I’m glad that it has gotten out that that was the original intention,” she shared. “But the world wasn’t quite ready for it — the corporate world wasn’t ready for it.”

Lilly adds, “I’m glad that people are talking about the Matrix movies with a trans narrative; I love how meaningful those films are to trans people, and the way that they come up to me and say ‘these movies saved my life.’”

“I’m grateful to be able to throw them a rope to help them on their journey.”

Lilly went on, saying that “The Matrix stuff was all about the desire for transformation — but it was all coming from a closeted point of view” and even revealed that the character of Switch, was originally meant to be male in the real world but female inside the Matrix.

“That’s both where our head spaces were,” she said.
