People are dropping their phones for this ‘Stranger Things’ meme
Buckle up, everyone. This meme is taking us to the Upside Down.
In the second season of Stranger Things, our favorite gang of Demagorgon fighters gets another glimpse of the mysterious Upside Down. Even though the new season premiered months ago, people have spent the past week creating elaborate mirror selfie videos paired with the Stranger Things theme song.
The trend involves recording mirror selfies by dropping your phone in slow motion and editing it with a backwards version of another slow motion phone drop.
Think of the selfie Olympics from a few weeks ago — this one’s just a little more extreme.
The result is part mirror selfie, part trolling, and part thirst trap.
For some, their attempts at the Stranger Things meme just didn’t go as planned.
And others got creative with their video edits.
Then there’s this one, which is just timeless.
The Duffer brothers haven’t announced an exact date for Season 3, but we know it’ll have at least eight episodes. We probably won’t find out more about the Upside Down until April 2019, but until then, we at least have these brilliant memes!
And before you try this at home, make sure you have a case on your phone. Or at least a screen protector — the Upside Down won’t save you from a cracked screen.
