And this extended Stranger Things New Coke ad delivers on both of those things, giving a glimpse at the duo’s hilarious season 3 dynamic as they bicker over girls and the right way to eat popcorn.

As the summer heats up, the third season of Stranger Things isn’t too far off. The new episodes will attempt to pull you away from the incessant fireworks that will be going off on July 4, but before we get a chance to binge the latest adventure in Hawkins, Indiana, a new batch of photos has arrived from Netflix showing Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin), Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo), and Max (Sadie Sink) mostly enjoying the summer.

When it comes to trying the latest soft drink, candy, chips or fast food promotions, I’m always curious. Just listen to any the Water Cooler episodes of our podcast /Film Daily and you’ll hear what I’m talking about. But when it comes to Burger King’s latest cross-promotion with the third season of Stranger Things, I seriously can’t deal with it.
Burger King has announced a special Stranger Things Upside Down Whopper. And if you’re thinking, “They didn’t just take a Whopper and turn it upside down, did they?” Yes, they did. That’s literally all they did. Someone dropped the damn sandwich and called it a cross-promotion. Read More »
Summer is heating up, and that means the third season of Stranger Things is getting closer. We’ve got less than a month until new episodes hit Netflix, and to further tease the new mysteries and danger that will be coming to Hawkins, Indiana, a new synopsis for the third season gives a vague glimpse of what’s in store for our teenage characters in the summer of 1985. But that’s not all.

IKEA is famous for providing furniture that can take forever to build and breaking up what seem like solid relationships in record time. But every now and then, they do something cool with pop culture that’s worth pointing out. This time, the Swedish furniture company has recreated the living rooms from The Simpsons, Stranger Things and Friends using their own furniture and some creativity. It’s actually kind of impressive how they pulled this off. Read More »
The third season of Stranger Things is bringing a shopping mall to Hawkins, Indiana. There’s nothing more representative of the 1980s than this bastion of consumerism all in one place, and since all the stores are eager to keep you from leaving the mall, there’s also some food and snacks to entice you. That includes cool treats from the Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop that Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and new character Robin (Maya Hawke) work at.
Unfortunately, we don’t have our own Scoops Ahoy in the real world, so Baskin-Robbins has stepped up to provide Stranger Things ice cream creations and some exclusive Scoops Ahoy gear that you can only get in their shops. Check out the special Stranger Things Baskin-Robbins ice cream treats and items you can pick up now. Read More »
Before Eleven, there was Six. No, this is not a failed attempt at counting, but a preview of the upcoming Stranger Things prequel comic, which follows a psychic teen who came to Hawkins, Indiana long before Eleven crushed a Coca-Cola can.
Stranger Things: Six is an upcoming four-issue miniseries from Dark Horse Comics that takes place prior to the events of season 1 of Stranger Things, Netflix’s flagship genre show that will make its long-awaited season 3 premiere this summer. So if you’re getting tired of waiting for Stranger Things season 3, Stranger Things: Six could temporarily fill in that void for you.

Does nostalgia also apply retroactively to things most people hated? Perhaps Stranger Things can pull it off with its upcoming tie-in with New Coke, the infamously despised new recipe of the classic soda that debuted in the summer of 1985, the setting for season 3 of the Netflix sci-fi drama. That’s right, New Coke is back, courtesy of a partnership between Coca-Cola and Netflix, which is hoping to build anticipation for its third season of its flagship sci-fi series with the release of a limited number of New Coke cans. But judging by the history of the drink, they probably won’t be flying off the shelves.
