Parents who are not thrilled with their children using New Year’s Eve to stay up until midnight can now fool at least some of them into going to bed earlier, thanks to Netflix.
The online streaming service is offering a three-minute countdown with King Julien from the upcoming animated series All Hail King Julien, a spinoff of Madagascar.
The segment shows Julien and his lemur friends holding a dance party to ring in 2015.
“Is it almost midnight yet?” King Julien asks. “Who cares? It’s midnight somewhere!”
The clip ends with the furry friends counting down to 2015 and fireworks.
