The choose-your-own-adventure film debuted in December 2018 and allows viewers to control the life of games developer Stefan (Fionn Whitehead) as they’re provided with a series of choices about where they wish to take his journey throughout the film.
Although the choices start with seemingly innocuous questions, they later prove more instrumental and heavily influence the direction of the film.
Now, Netflix has revealed the amount of people taking each choice, and they’re pleasantly surprising.
For starters, it seems that 60 percent of viewers opted to feed Stefan Frosties on the biggest day of his life.
So far, so good.
On the biggest day of Stefan's life, over 60% of his friends from the future fed him Frosties.

Here with your very British update. Compared to the rest of the world, Brits were *less* likely to waste a good cup of tea (obviously).
Bandersnatchers in Britain chose "throw tea" only 52.9% of the time. The rest of the world do so 55.9% of the time https://t.co/uPIY1gBMl2

However, Netflix also revealed that British audiences were far less likely to throw a cup of tea over the computer than audiences across the globe. When faced with that choice, only 52.9 percent of Brits opted for it. That’s in contrast to 55.9 percent of global audiences.
But perhaps the most reassuring statistic comes in the ending – it was revealed that the one where Stefan gets on a train with his mum was the least popular. Given how that one pans out, it’s reassuring that we’re not entirely dead inside.
Relax. It's hard to predict the future!
And it's even more difficult to change the past.
Out of the 5 main endings, the one where Stefan goes on the train with his mum *fights tears* was the path least traveled.https://t.co/NhxbbmSzZj

But while there’s only five endings, there’s a staggering one trillion individual story combinations.
Although the combinations mean that viewers could potentially watch a 40 minute offering, most will experience a 90 minute version of the experience. It was also reported that 312 minutes of footage were shot for the film.
