Most of us know what it’s like to feel like the least popular kid in school, because at one time or another, we have all been that kid. Because of this, most of us can relate to the story of young Stranger Things super-fan Aaron Alambat, which we learned about thanks the folks over at Bored Panda.
Aaron had a kick ass Stranger Things themed birthday party set up, complete with Demogorgon blood punch and “Upside Down” themed decorations, but none of Aaron’s 8 invited schoolmates showed up for the festivities. Aaron’s sister Ayen went on Twitter and shared her disappointment, while showing off all the hard work Aaron’s family had put into making his Stranger Things birthday party worthy of the Hawkins’ Middle School AV Club.

As it turns out, thousands of people read that message too, many of whom sympathized with Aaron’s plight. One of those fans was none other than Stranger Things’ Eleven herself, actress Millie Bobby Brown, who then replied back via Twitter with the following message:
“What!!!! Oh Well You can let them all know that everyone on behalf on Stranger things would’ve come! I think you’re awesome and next year I would like an invite… Please?”

Millie’s good will towards Arron was also reflected in series actor Gaten Matarazzo, who went ahead and offered to bring the chocolate pudding to the next year’s birthday festivities for Aaron, a sentiment which was totally in keeping with his character on the show, Dustin:
Don’t know about you, but we think that having the actual cast of the show you some love is probably way cooler than having a bunch of kids show up and eat all your food and cake.
What do you think of how awesome the members of the Stranger Things cast were to their young uber-fan? Let us know your thoughts down below in the comments.
