Stephen Colbert Made a Mash up Video of Trump and ‘Stranger Things’ That Is Both Hilarious and Terrifying

The second season of Stranger Things is premiered on Netflix on Friday, and people are brimming with anticipation to find out the fate of those bike-riding, Dungeons and Dragons-playing kids in Hawkins, Indiana.

But recently, it feels like our real life political climate is the true Upside Down.

Thursday, Stephen Colbert tweeted, “No one says Stranger Things than Donald Trump.” Much like the TV series it references, the video that accompanied Colbert’s tweet is equal parts delightful and ominous.

Colbert’s team cleverly tied in clips of Stranger Things with instances where Donald Trump has ended a sentence with, “and other things.”

“We’re gonna get other things.” What things? Unexplainable flashing lights? Government conspiracies? Demons calling our landlines and breathing loudly through the receiver?

So, like… chocolate pudding? “We’re gonna win on infrastructure and lots of other things.”  

“Mexico, and lots of other things.” K, Mexico is a place.

When you’re living in the Upside Down, you need someone smart by your side. In our minds, Stephen Colbert is our Detective Jim Harper and we’re all Will’s mom, Joyce Byers.

What happened to [SPOILER ALERT] Eleven after she battled the Demogorgon? Will we hear anything else about poor, loyal Barb? Oh, Barb. Will Will and Eleven rekindle a romance? We have SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. But most importantly, what’s going on with those “other things?”
