Netflix Tricks Kids into Going to Bed Early with Fake New Year Countdown Videos


Themed to 14 popular children’s programs, including Boss Baby, Fuller House, and Alexa & Katie, streaming video giant Netflix has released a bunch of New Year’s Eve countdown videos aimed at helping parents trick their children into going to bed before midnight (via TV Guide). The company did the same for last year’s countdown as well.

According to the latest research carried out by Netflix, over 77% of parents in the U.S. would rather stay in than go whoop it up as the ball drops. The fake countdown videos on Netflix can be found by searching for “New Year’s Eve countdown” or for the individual show titles in the app.
