LG Electronics got involved, inviting the Stranger Things cast to deliver a brand new TV to a die-hard fan who thought she was being filmed for a customer services video.

Netflix embraced the nostalgia, launching a free to download vintage game where solving puzzles and collecting Eggos is the aim of the game.  The game was developed by BonusXP, an indie game development studio based Texas.
