When it comes to exploding rats, Russians infiltrating a suburban mall and a psychokinetic girl fending off otherworldly monsters, Stranger Things is never in short supply of unusual phenomena.
But you know what?
There are no stranger things than being on the internet.
Fans of Netflix's Sci-Fi hit that takes place in the 1980s are getting their acid-washed jeans and scrunchies in a bunch over a jaw-dropping phenomenon that is weirder than the Upside-Down.
Twitter user Trevor White uncovered old photos and pointed out that a younger David Harbour – who plays the chief of police Jim Hopper from the show – looks just like Steve, while an adolescent Patton Oswalt looks exactly like Dustin.
@DavidKHarbour and @pattonoswalt ‘s friendship makes so much sense when you realize they are grown up Steve & Dustin https://t.co/v2R8yejLOp— Trevor White (@Trevor White)1563743918.0
Harbour, 44, and Oswalt, 50, are friends in real life.
And based on the juxtaposed photos above, the younger gentlemen perfectly rocked their 80s coifs just like the characters they are being compared to.
So far, Oswalt responded to the viral madness.
Oh my God. OH MY GOD. You see this @DavidKHarbour? https://t.co/FqIZactzt6— Patton Oswalt (@Patton Oswalt)1563744568.0
Twitter is eating this up like a hot dog on a stick.

There's only one way to recover from this Stranger Things mania: gorging on the USS Butterscotch from Scoops Ahoy from the Starcourt Mall.
See you there!
