They added: “The idea is simple: press play on GoldenEye at the same moment as Pierce.
“And listen along to his play-by-play analysis and commentary in real-time.”
GoldenEye was the first post-Cold War Bond movie and was released after a six-year hiatus.
The film also marked Judi Dench’s debut as the first female M, which she went on to reprise across both Brosnan and Daniel Craig’s movies – with a cameo most recently seen in Spectre.
Back in 2018, Brosnan admitted that his 007 “was never good enough” bar GoldenEye.
After his debut, the actor starred in Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day.
Speaking with Daily Mail, Brosnan said: “I was caught between Sean Connery’s Bond and Roger Moore’s Bond, and it was only really in GoldenEye that I did my Bond.”
The 66-year-old also explained how he had “issues for many years” having been dropped from the role, after 2002’s Die Another Day, by a teary Barbara Broccoli over the phone.

While in 2017, he told Total Film magazine of his “frustration” with his time as Bond.
Brosnan said: “There was a certain frustration within me as the films went on, as I could see the world happening around me and the movies.
“I wanted Bond to get a little more gritty and real and down and dirty.
“But however you try to nurse it along, the scripts would come along with the same outlandish scenarios.”
He added: “So you go with the flow, and just enjoy the great experience of travelling the world and being this character.”
Nevertheless, he’s much more positive about his time as 007 eighteen years since he left the role.
Brosnan admitted: “Now I just have great feelings about Bond.
“I loved the irony of being an Irishman playing this quintessential English character. I love what it did for me as an actor.”
