Looks like someone in Malaysia really loves 'Kung Fu Panda 2'. According to Netflix's yearly review, a member in Malaysia watched the movie 137 times in 2017. That's about once every two or three days!

The best part is... that's not even the craziest figure from the global figures. 

The record for most watched and re-watched movie on Netflix goes to an American who streamed 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' 365 times in the past year! Meanwhile, a Canadian watched 'Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' 361 times in 2017, while a member in the UK streamed 'Bee Movie' 357 times. 

In addition to what we watched in 2017, the popular streaming service's 'Year In Review' also revealed some truly bizarre stats on how Malaysians watched Netflix in the past year:

1. The most popular day for binge-watching in Malaysia was 4 September

Now we know what you guys were doing on the additional public holiday PM Najib declared after Malaysia clinched the top spot at the 2017 SEA Games! 

2. Malaysians also proved to be champion Binge-Racers, coming up tops with the highest percentage of members in Asia who sped through an entire season within 24 hours of its release

In fact, 'Stranger Things' was the most Binge-Raced show in Malaysia this year. Pat yourselves on the back if you finished Season 2 in a day!
