Comedian and celebrity personality, Chelsea Handler, partnered with us to build Gotta Go in conjunction with her Netflix documentary series. The Netflix episode featured Yeti collaborating with Chelsea to build a real product that is both useful and entertaining. With just three taps the excuse generator app sends real calls and texts to your phone, springing you from any social snafu imaginable. Since it’s launch, the app has acquired over 100,000 users with almost 200,000 excuses created… and it’s still growing!
