Netflix dropped the first feature length Black Mirror film, complete with a choose-your-own-adventure style feature and the memes about it are out of control.
In case you aren't in the loop or happen to be a first time watcher, 'Bandersnatch' is the first feature length Black Mirror movie. It's not part of 'series' or 'season' or whatever you wanna call it. There's a bunch of references and name drops to the previous episodes hidden in the film (Saint Juniper's Medical Facility, Metalhead, White Bear, Nosedive...) but none of those are vital to understanding the story.
It's also the first interactive episode of Black Mirror, and the first choose-your-own-adventure feature on Netflix. The average viewing time of the film is 90 minutes, with some people 'completing' it in 40 minutes. According to Variety, the film has five different endings and "over a trillion unique permutations of the story." (I have been watching for 2 and a half hours and have seen 4 of them. I think.)
The internet descended on to the film the second it dropped on Friday (Dec 28) and they haven't stopped talking about it - or meme-ing it - since. People are losing it over the first decision you have to make in the film, they're stressed about what may or may not have happened to Colin (played by Will Poulter) and most people are just screaming over the mess that is Stefan's life (poor ol' Fionn Whitehead, having to film all those scenes!)
Here are some of the best 'Bandersnatch' memes. Oh, and also... SPOILERS AHEAD.
The first decision was quite literally life or death.
Please never show Chidi this game. Ever.
Imagine letting ME be in charge of someone else's life?! IMAGINE!?
