‘Stranger Things’ Meets ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ In This Clever Mashup That’s Almost Like A Flashback

stranger things always sunny mashup

Netflix’s Stranger Things is blowing up. After one season, the sci-fi thriller is the most popular show on the streaming service and might only be surpassed by the new Luke Cage series if we’re to trust that show’s trailer.

Even if you haven’t seen Stranger Things yet, this side-by-side comparison of all the movie references the show makes will give you the chills. Even the keenest of watchers probably missed this homage. Plus, the opening theme song is so engrossing that it’s getting even better remixes like this one…


On the other hand, you have the grizzled dark comedy, It’s Always Sunny. A bunch of madcap kooks cooking up crazy schemes. Lying, backstabbing, conniving. Planning, plotting, avenging, and revenging.

So, what do you get when you mix the two? This…

Personally, I liked it. It left me wanting more. Plus, it feels like the prequel to Always Sunny. Like, this is what happened to Dennis, Mac, and Charlie to make them who they are today. If Always Sunny doesn’t do a flashback episode paying homage to Stranger Things then why even get up in the morning?

One YouTube commenter suggested giving Stranger Things the Curb Your Enthusiasm treatment, which has been done to death. But, the Always Sunny meme machine could power my laughter for weeks, nay, months to come.

Redditors weren’t so kind…

Abortion, dude? Be careful trolling that hard, your face might permanently freeze into that jackass grin expression. Five out of five moms can’t be wrong.
