'Stranger Things' star David Harbour dancing to 80's hits is all you'll ever need
Stranger Things 2 aired this weekend which means you either A) binge-watched the whole thing, B) only managed a few episodes here and there between Halloween parties and hangovers that had you crawling from the couch to sitting-down-crying showers or C) you didn't get a chance to watch anything, in which case you need to leave this page immediately and open Netflix.
But of all plot twists and revelations, nothing came as more of a surprise as of how damn attractive Jim Hopper is in this season. The chief of Hawkin's police force, played by David Harbour, is one of few people genuinely trying to figure out the mysterious things still haunting the small town, and he's adorably caring as well as tough and courageous. And, can we just mention his biceps?
But I digress. What I actually wanted to share with you was a new audio-visual meme that's emerged from the scene where Hopper puts on an old Jim Croce record and starts doing a little dance. He and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) are about to start cleaning his grandfather's cabin, and she stands by watching Hopper do his little wiggling dance moves with a mixed look of curiosity and bewilderment.
This was a moment golden enough. But then, one Twitter user decided to get crafty and bless the world with a new account called @hopperdancingto. You see where this is going, right? Okay, headphones in if you're ready.
Here's Hopper dancing to Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles (STILL a banger):
Hopper dancing to All Star, AKA, the unofficial Shrek theme song:
Grooving to Africa:
Hopper dancing to The Ketchup Song:
This excellent tune from A-ha:
Here he is up with the times, dancing to Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do:
Looks like he's partial to a bit of Travis Scott too:
Does it get better? Oh yes.
And finally, here's Hopper dancing to the Stranger Things intro song:
It weirdly works, right? The official Stranger Things account started following @hopperdancingto, and it looks like Harbour himself has very much taken by the new meme too. It was the Hall and Oates tune You Make My Dreams Come True that got him to reply to the creator saying: "Whoever created this account has won, not only the internet, but, yes, my stone cold heart."
Us too, buddy, us too.
In other news, Spotify made a playlist last week titled Hopper's Nighttime Drive and it's got everything you'd imagine him listening to in his 1980 Chevy K5 Blazer. It's described as "A driving playlist for small-town police chiefs that like their coffee and contemplation to go".
Here it is:
