The film was the 5 billionth DVD title rented from the streaming giant.

DVD Netflix, run by the Netflix subsidiary DVD.com, thanked subscribers on Twitter and posted a video celebration featuring a countdown that ended with cake and champagne.

“The most heartfelt thank you to our incredible members that have been with us for the past 21 years of DVD Netflix,” the tweet reads. “Five billion discs delivered is a huge milestone and we owe it all to our amazing members and team members.”
