Black Mirror: Bandersnatch‘s Choose Your Own Adventure is Chidi’s Actual Nightmare

HOW CAN I PICK BETWEEN SUGAR PUFFS AND FROSTIES? HOW?

YOU CAN’T HAVE SPOILERS CAUSE THE STORIES CHANGE!!!! IT IS A CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!!!! I’M OBSESSED!!!!!!

Just kidding, there are spoilers for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch in this article. Please choose if you want to continue or not. 

Get it? Because it is a choose your own adventure? ANYWAY, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch came out today and we’ve all collectively lost our minds so please see the greatest collection of tweets about this movie that may or may not be 8 hours long.

If you’re like me, you know your music and you know it well, so when it came time to decide on what song to have Stefan listen to, there was no competition.

One thing is very clear about Black Mirror: Bandersnatch though: Chidi Anagonye would have a breakdown.

The movie is a bit meta, pointing out that clearly someone is controlling Stefan.

However, there are some choices we can’t escape.

One thing is clear though: This movie is not an hour and thirty minutes. Netflix straight up LIED.

Naturally, part of the issue with a choose your own adventure is that eventually, the decisions get hard and harder to make. With Bandersnatch, the hard choices started with cereal.

And sometimes, no matter our choices, we can’t escape the future.

But then again, most of us are demented and would have chosen to kill Stefan’s dad anyway.

Your family may not understand your obsession but it is okay. We’re here for you.

And, at the end of the day, we all may feel like God.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is on Netflix now and, beware, you’ll keep playing it for hours on end.

Rachel is an I, Tonya stan who used to have a poster of Frank Sinatra on her wall as a kid. She loves superheroes, weird musicals, and to cry in the shower over songs from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. She is Leslie Knope and she's okay with that. At least she gets to live in New York City though!
