Netflix fakes NYE countdown so you can send the kids off early

Netflix NYE countdownWith Netflix "fake" countdowns, kids can hit the hay early, so parents can hit the sauce even earlier.

On the back of a survey that suggests Aussie parents call it a night on New Year's after sending the kids to bed, Netflix has released a handful of countdown videos to help give children that 12:00 feeling at a reasonable hour.

According to a study conducted by Survey Monkey on behalf on Netflix, one-third (34%) of Australian parents claim to say goodnight on NYE soon after sending the kids to bed and miss the NYE celebrations completely.

In an effort to help parents deceive their little ones into thinking it is 12:00, Netflix has released six different countdown programs that can be played whenever the parent chooses - allowing parents to enter 2016 guilt-free and well and truly sozzled.
