Was John Stamos in on the Netflix prank — or did he think the documentary was real too?

April Fools' Day is cruel for a number of reasons, but none so sexy and upsetting as this faux John Stamos documentary courtesy of Netflix. In John Stamos: Human, Being, a documentary that will sadly never see the light of day, Stamos teases fans with the story of "What is John Stamos? Teenage heartthrob. Worldwide brand. What is a star?

In a continued April Fools' Day prank, People claims that Stamos had a meltdown while at the Netflix offices to film said trailer. According to their article, they've obtained footage (which, to be clear, is nowhere to be found, although we would love to see it) of Stamos "throwing a glass and hurling profanities." Uncle Jesse, we know you would never do anything like that.

"This is DISGUSTING NETFLIX way to protect your TALENT," Stamos tweets. "Netflix thinks they can make MY BRAND into a JOKE??"
