Incredible “Stranger Things” Promo Suggests 1984 Was a Massive Conspiracy

1984 was a huge conspiracy. The evidence? New Coke, Ghostbusters, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s hit single Relex.

They say conspiracy theorists can string together anything they want in order to sell the connection between two mutually non-exclusive things. There’s always a path to convince people that we never went to the moon or that our water is being poisoned, or even that our weather is being controlled. While sometimes fun, it can also be harmful, especially to those in Hawkins, Indiana.

Netflix just unleashed this absurd promo for the second season “Stranger Things” that’s so over-the-top that it’s hilarious and loads of fun. The stage is set when they reference Will Byers’ abduction in season one and then segue into the pop culture phenomenons that made 1984 such a bizarre year. Everything was flipped upside down…

This is one of my favorite promos ever and I hope it’s included when “Stranger Things” returns to Netflix on October 27.

    I’m predicting lots of “While I’m enjoying season two I have to admit it’s not as good as the first” posts in a few weeks. This will actually be people coming down from the hype high that the show rides on.

      not necessarily. a 2nd season of any show not being as good as it’s stellar first season happens all the time and it has nothing to do with hype or whatever. imo season 1 of this show was excellent from start to finish and i watched all 8 eps the day it was released so there really wasn’t much hype surrounding the show at that time. it was an awesome season 1 because it was an awesome season 1.
      it’s also hard (and in most cases impossible) to have lightning strike twice. for example The Walking Dead and American Horror Story imo had incredible first seasons and yet none of their respective subsequent seasons have been as good and that has nothing to do with hype.

      The 1st season was overhyped as it was.

  • Dennis Chenier

    I’m waiting until all the episodes are out so I can binge season two.

    • GinAndMiskatonic

      It’s coming out on Netflix, the whole season should be out at once.

      • Dennis Chenier

        If that’s case I’m super pumped. I know with some shows on Netflix they release them on a weekly basis.

  • J Jett

    very excited for season 2!

    RELEX. When you combine Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Duran Duran.
