'Don't get strange': Seth Meyers' perfect 'Making a Murderer' parody


"Late Night" was back on the air Monday night with a timely cold open.

Seth Meyers, like every other human who's ever taken a vacation, was reluctant to return to work after the holidays. The talk show host had to be coaxed by an employee of 30 Rockefeller Center in this "Making a Murderer" parody.

"They don't got no more reruns," the employee says in a call reminiscent of collect calls placed on the popular Netflix show.

"Supposing I don't wanna come back," Meyers responds (in his best 'sconnie accent).

"Don't get strange" echoes the voice on the other end of the line.

The Netflix documentary series details the case of Wisconsin man Steven Avery, convicted in the 2005 murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach. It's inspired an army of armchair detectives (presumably Netflix binge-watchers) who question the handling of Avery's case by law enforcement.
