However, it’s hitting the fast-food industry in a way that’s a little bit turned on its head.
Stranger Things has teamed up with Burger King to serve Whoppers in its ‘80s style packaging and will dub it the “Upside-Down Whopper.” And, oh yeah, they’re actually selling it turned upside down.

The restaurant also changed their Twitter name to “Stranger King” and their avi to be of an upside-down sandwich.
Along with the promotion, Burger King is running a sweepstakes in partnership with Coca Cola where winners might receive $25,000, a new car or trips. You can find out more in the commercial they put out for the contest below.

Nike is releasing the collab in a series of two drops. The first drop is the “Hawkins High” pack that uses the school’s green and orange scheme. There are ‘80s sweat suits and T-shirts, as well as three styles of sneakers. This will drop June 27.
The second drop is the “OG Pack” set to release July 1. It’s a red-white and blue scheme in celebration of 1985 Independence Day, the day the new season drops. You can see images of the full collection below.
