You don't want to be a buttfaced miscreant, do you? Then please, for the love of all that is good, do not spoil the last four words of the upcoming "Gilmore Girls" revival, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life."
Stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel -- who play Lorelai and Rory Gilmore -- are featured a new PSA about those famed words, pleading with fans not to ruin the surprise for those who can't watch the four-episode revival series right away.

"You may want to shout them from the rooftop as the sun rises, calling an end to your shameless binge-watching," Graham tells viewers. "But don't do it."
"Control yourself!" adds Bledel.
The pair liken revealing such a spoiler to people who tweet about another Netflix show, "House of Cards," the day it's released, or those who casually discuss the ending to "Breaking Bad" in public, assuming everyone has already seen it (Bledel has not -- she's been really busy! -- so zip those lips). The PSA then leads fans to a special web page, where they can "take the four words pledge," and publicly vow not to spill the beans about the long-kept secret ending to the series.
It's a brilliant bit of marketing that plays directly to longtime fans of the show who have had nearly a decade to agonize over what those words could be (words that "Gilmore" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has planned on using to end the series, before famously leaving the show before its seventh and -- at the time -- final season). There's been lots of speculation about what they could be -- and previous pleas from Sherman-Palladino to keep them under wraps -- and we'd hate to see someone spoil the surprise for others after so much build-up. Do the right thing, and sign the pledge.
"Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" hits Netflix on November 25.
