the united states of Adam Sandler
People really, really, really like Adam Sandler movies. In fact, when you lump all Netflix subscribers together, they have collectively spent half a billion hours over the course of just 17 months watching Sandler films, Uproxx reports. That breaks down to approximately 1 million hours of Sandler being watched per day.
Depending on how you feel about Sandler's sense of humor, the following perspective could be soul-crushing:
According to Time, Netflix subscribers streamed on average for 1 hour, 33 minutes per day. If there are 100 million subscribers streaming for at least 100 minutes per day (time spent streaming is trending up) then Adam Sandler content is responsible for roughly 0.6-1.0 percent of all Netflix consumption every day.
Every single day.
The average human lifespan is 672,000 hours. That means over 744 full human lives have been sucked dry by Adam Sandler viewing over the last 17 months. [Uproxx]
Unsurprisingly, Netflix loves Sandler. The streaming website just released its third of Sandler's films, Sandy Wexler, which only has a 33 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Nevertheless, Netflix already has a deal for four additional films after that.
"We continue to be excited by our Sandler relationship and our members continue to be thrilled with his films," Netflix said in a statement. Goodbye, hundreds more human lifetimes.
