Published Dec 14, 2017Let's be honest — we all have shameful viewing habits. Whether it's the quantity or the quality of what we're watching, none of us would be too happy to have our entire watch list out there. Still, some people go above and beyond the normal level of bad taste. Take, for example, the Netflix user that watched Bee Movie 357 times in the last year.
When you first read that story, you may have guessed that the person obsessed with Jerry Seinfeld's turn as a talking bee was a small child. If so, you were correct. Bee Movie is practically raising a young British child named Jaxson.
The Sun tracked down Gemma Chalmers, who confessed that all those Bee Movie views were coming from her account. "I couldn't believe it when I saw the story," she said. "My friends were tagging me in posts — saying, 'This has to be you.' I calculated it — and it might even be more than 357 times."
The Scottish mother added that 10-month-old Jaxson first saw the film, which also features voice acting from Larry King and Sting, when he was mere weeks old. It stopped him from crying at that age, and it's been a fixture in his life ever since.
"Ever since, we've watched it multiple times a day to keep him happy," Chalmers said, adding that he'll often watch it four times in a row. "He watches the film from the moment he wakes up until he goes to sleep at night."
Of course, despite the enthralling tale of Seinfeld's Barry B. Benson suing humanity for stealing his honey, the plot of Bee Movie is wearing on Chalmers. "I know every word of that film," she said. "I am completely fed up with it."
Trouble is, Jaxson refuses to watch anything else. "He doesn't even pay attention to it and plays with his toys — but still, it always has to be on," Chalmers added. "We've tried Trolls, Cars and other Disney films. But nothing works like the Bee Movie."
