Death Note tells the tale of Light Turner, a high school student who stumbles upon a notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it. Armed with the book, Light reinvents himself as a vigilante and takes on a series of street criminals, which brings him to the attention of a detective known as L.

Death Note, directed by Adam Wingard and based on the manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, will debut on Netflix on August 25.

However, none of this really provides any context to what you're about to watch. Just enjoy as our own Jackie Jennings has a surreal encounter with Lakeith Stanfield, who plays L.

This is happening. As we speak.
