It's OK to consider this - you're only human, that and you can predict the alternative scenario already - kids, half demented either crying or pucking the heads off each other on the couch come 11:59 tonight. Nobody's a winner. Thankfully the good people at Netflix have come to your rescue in the form of this faux countdown featuring the cuddly sorts from Madagascar.

ALL HAIL KING JULIEN! OK... so if you don't already have a Netflix account, viewing the streaming three minute film may be an issue - but sure who doesn't have a Netflix account nowadays, hah?

And, yes, it's essentially a promo for All Hail King Julien, but it might work? Anything is worth a whirl, especially when they start whining "IS IT TIME YET?" from approximately 9:30pm onwards...
