‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour Will Officiate a Fan’s Wedding, Thanks to Twitter
Barb might have been the surprise breakout star of Stranger Things season 1, but Jim Hopper is undoubtedly the fan favorite of season 2. Actor David Harbour has been having fun with his fame in recent weeks and even agreed to officiate a fan’s wedding — all thanks to Twitter.
On Monday, a fan named Ericka tweeted, “What would it take to get @DavidKHarbour to be the Officiant at my wedding in September?!”
The actor replied with not only the number of retweets required to make her wish a reality, but also a list of demands should it actually happen.
“125k retweets,” he began. “Provided date works with s3 shooting schedule, I will get ordained and perform ceremony. I get to read an esteemed love letter of my choosing, and after the cake is officially cut, I get the very first piece. #allthecakes.”

Welp, it happened. Within 24 hours, the tweet had surpassed the retweet goal, and Harbour immediately got to work on keeping his word.
“Dammit. Not even 24 hours. You’re kidding me,” he wrote. “@ErickaElizabth DM me please to get the ball rolling. I’m making it seriously hard next time, internet, this is not over between us…”

This isn’t the first time Harbour has made good on a Twitter dare. Just last week, he revealed that he had posed for a fan’s senior school photos after she asked how many retweets it would take to get him to agree to it. He told her that she’d need 25,000, and that he would also “get to wear the school sweatshirt and hold a trombone.” It happened, and the photos are truly priceless.

Voted most likely to hijack someone’s high school senior photos 24 years later. Many thanks to @postydamaris and her kind family and @iamtommyg photography for making a dream come true and proving my high school classmates right!!

As for the upcoming wedding Harbour will officiate, it sounds like he might not be the only star in the house — Twitter user Ericka also seems intent on getting Ed Sheeran to sing a song at the nuptials. How many retweets to get the two to duet?!
