‘Stranger Things’ Gets Even Stranger With the Bad Lip Reading Treatment

As Stranger Things star David Harbour celebrates his Golden Globe nomination for his role as Police Chief Jim Hopper, a Bad Lip Reading session taking on the show’s first season has started to make the rounds. The video covers everything from Mike’s awkward family dinner to Barb’s admiration of her BFF Nancy. There’s even a one-act play for the boys’ talent show, followed by some modern jazz, courtesy of Hopper and Joyce. Just try to make it through the entire video without laughing.


If you’ve never seen a Bad Lip Reading video before, it’s exactly what you’d expect based on the name. The folks responsible for the popular YouTube channel pull together a collection of clips from your favorite shows, movies, and even interviews with celebs. They then remove the sound and add their own voice-overs with dialogue that they come up with via, well, bad lip reading.

The magic of it all is that the people in the videos actually (kinda, mostly) look like they’re saying every utterly strange and random thing that’s scripted in the voice-over. It’s pretty fantastic.

In the Stranger Things version, we see our favorite characters in season 1, though this is certainly a different interpretation of the story than the one we saw on Netflix. There are a lot of great moments — fried owl feet? — but the Joyce and Hopper duet truly takes the cake. Sing it, friends: “It was the dog that bit me for the burger meat!”

Honestly, you need to see it for yourself.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
