So, you’ve given Bandersnatch a go. You’ve scratched your head over whether choosing Frosties or Sugar Puffs really makes a difference. You’ve wondered how the blazes they managed to make this work. You’ve marveled at the underlying themes presented in a way only Charlie Brooker can.
Several official Netflix Twitter and Black Mirror Twitter accounts have listed a bunch of random facts such as these…
“On the biggest day of Stefan’s life, over 60% of his friends from the future fed him Frosties.” – @BlackMirror
“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. – @NetflixUK
“73% chose to ACCEPT the job at Tuckersoft.” – @Netflix
“Out of the 5 main endings, the one where Stefan goes on the train with his mum *fights tears* was the path least traveled.” – @NXonNetflix
Reading the corresponding comments also reveals some nice Easter eggs we hadn’t heard of before, such as…
“You can pick Tomita and still see Tangerine Dream. There’s a poster for the album EXIT on the wall in Colin’s flat, as well as a Moog synth that Edgar Froese favoured to write on. Look behind Colin as he stands up to rant before they go to the balcony. Ironically, you see the EXIT poster if Colin jumps.”
“FYI, if you’d gone for NOW II, you still could have heard Hold Me Now as it’s also on that album. The 1st song Stefan hears when he wakes up is Relax. If he chooses NOW II you get Here Comes The Rain Again. If you check the track listing on NOW II, Relax is the song just before HCTRA. Another cool Easter Egg.”
