The 'Stranger Things'/'Charlie Brown' Mashup Is Actually Good
Listen, I'm as tired of stuff that mashes up two things that nerds like into one chimera of presumed awesomeness as everyone else is, but every now and then, that rare thing comes along that's just really, really well done and well worth seeing. Today, we have one of those: Leigh Lahev and Oren Mendez's Merry Christmas, Will Byers. The animated short is, of course, a mashup that parodies Stranger Things and the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas, but what sets it apart from your average It's Two Things project (aside from not being a t-shirt) is that it's really, really well done, and also builds to a pretty great punchline. Take three minutes and give it a watch!
