Last week, in a small corner of East London’s Brick Lane, passers-by will have noticed something very strange afoot…
Why, we hear you ask. Well, to celebrate the launch of Stranger Things’ third series – which will feature the now infamous ‘New Coke’ –
Someone who confessed to falling into the latter demographic was Mick: “I grew up in Cornwall in the 80s, where there were amusement arcades everywhere. So, this is all very nostalgic,” Mick told us. “There’s not a game in there I wouldn’t have played growing up. Street Fighter was definitely one of my favourites.”
“I’m a big Stranger Things fan,” he went on. “I finished series three last night because I knew there would be a lot of fans here and I didn’t want anyone to inadvertently give me a spoiler!”
The first 800 visitors to the secret world were given a limited-edition Coca Cola x Stranger Things upside-down can. Two of that number were superfans of the show, Lauren and Claudia, who we caught up with.
“It was really fun,” said Lauren, on the upside-down world. “I definitely wasn’t expecting a Demogorgon to hand me a can of Coke!”
