MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 Riffs on STRANGER THINGS in Amazing Netflix Crossover

Having all new episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 in our lives still feels like one of the most unexpected and wonderful gift we have ever received from the television gods, but little did we know it could get even better. That’s because Netflix went ahead and created one of the greatest displays of cross company promotion we have ever seen, by letting the gang rift on Stranger Things.

In this hilarious short video/advertisement, onethat actually gives the word “synergy” a good name, the new MST3K crew headed up by Jonah Ray provides their classic movie riff treatment to the beloved horror series, specifically David Harbour‘s Chief of Police Jim Hopper and his less-than-ideal early morning routine.

Savage, but amazing.

Okay, look Netflix, we understand this is really just a genius form of viral advertising, but it is so good we need even more of this. We need a lot more of this. In fact, we need all of it, all eight episodes of Stranger Things worth of this. You need to let Jonah, Tom Servo, and Crow make fun of everything from the series, like how Barb’s disappearance was ignored by the whole town, how casting fireballs didn’t end up playing any factor, and especially every single scene involving Winona Ryder and her frantic handling of anything and everything. Sure, it wasn’t that long ago we couldn’t imagine a world with new Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes in it, but now that we have them, and you’ve shown us what’s possible, we demand you give us even more.
