So it’s no surprise that Netflix are getting in on the act, shooting a documentary called Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling, and promoting it with a video that spoofs a bunch of Netflix shows.

What is Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now

Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now is a fly-on-the-wall documentary about the singing superstar.

Filmed over several years, the special charts Capaldi’s meteoric rise, through exclusive, never-before-seen footage that leads up to him recording his second album back in Scotland. At his parents’ house. Here’s the official synopsis…

The film captures Capaldi’s defining year, struggling to balance the familiarity of home, normality, and all he’s ever known, with life as one of the biggest stars on the planet, gleaning an intimate portrait of his unique character, hopes and fears in his own words. Digging beneath the popular clichés surrounding the most unlikely of popstars reveals a deeply thoughtful and self-reflective young man at a unique crossroads in his life as he carries the weight of trying to eclipse the success of his record-breaking debut album.
