It's almost the end of the year, and all our secrets are spilling out. Netflix may not name names, but they have all the data on the stuff we've been binge watching this year, and they're sharing what they consider the worst cases—like the 53 people obsessed with A Christmas Prince. Why you gotta blow up everyone's spot, Netflix?
But this may take the cake. Business Insider reports that somewhere, someone has watched Jerry Seinfeld's Bee Movie 357 times this year. Please. Help. Them.
Are they trapped under a honeycomb? What is happening?
People are trying to unravel the mystery of why someone would watch that film more than once, if that. The most obvious explanation is that it's playing at a daycare center, or in front of some crying baby who can only be soothed by the cartoon antics of an anthropomorphic insect.
probably someone's child. It seems like I've watched trolls 6000 times this year because of my kids !— The fryer in the lower (@metalbenwfc) December 11, 2017
But it could really be anyone. Netflix also revealed that we collectively have watched 140 million hours of Netflix every single day in 2017. That's over a billion hours a week. We may not be as easily diagnosable as the Bee Movie fanatic, but we're all sick. The doctor prescribes some time outdoors with your phone turned off. Meet a real bee and see how that feels.
