The cult favorite Netflix series is taking over pop culture once again.

I'm sorry to Halloween, but the real October royalty is Stranger Things. The Duffer brothers' breakout Netflix hit we all devoured last year is about to return for season two at the end of the month, but that isn't stopping them from taking over the Internet early.

Everything began yesterday when Paris Fashion Week's crown jewel designer Louis Vutton shocked everyone with tees emblazoned with a poster of the show's cast. While it's not quite our dream of seeing Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Finn Wolfhard walk the runway, it'll have to do. Toward the finale of the show (set in the Louvre, of course), model Sora Choi pounded down the runway with the merch pulled over a billowing collared shirt for a look to end all looks. The addition may have been the product of LV designer Nicolas Ghesquiere hanging out with the Stranger Things kids last year at the LV headquarters.

As if this week's high fashion moment weren't enough, the show also just dropped an official, 8-bit video game for iPhone and Android. The adventure game is based on fan art and is set in Mirkwood Forest and Hawkins Lab circa 1984. If there were ever a reason to stop playing Dots and Co. on the morning commute this month, it's this. With weeks to go until the second season drops on October 27th, we can only guess what other tricks and treats await us.
