We have our first “Stranger Things 2” meme.
The second season to last year’s hit show “Stranger Things” was released on Netflix on Friday. The show immediately shot to the top of Twitter’s trending list, as people set out to binge-watch the show’s nine-episode season.
Now, three days after the release, we’ve got our first meme: Dancing Jim Hopper.
The trending meme comes from a moment in an episode where Jim Hopper (David Harbour), the chief of police, dances to music when he and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) are cleaning up an old shack.
Here’s the original scene:
According to Mashable, the Twitter account @hopperdancingto created and shared multiple versions of the meme that show Hopper dancing to popular music.https://twitter.com/hopperdancingto/status/924481755293343744 https://twitter.com/hopperdancingto/status/924731977508540416 https://twitter.com/hopperdancingto/status/924868249787011072 https://twitter.com/hopperdancingto/status/924752205726601217 https://twitter.com/hopperdancingto/status/924831008347885575
Harbour celebrated the meme on Twitter, too.
Other Twitter users joined in on the fun over the weekend.
“Like all good movements on Twitter, there’s an official hashtag for the meme: #DancingHopper. As more people make their way through the series, and get to this exact moment, we expect to see even more takes on the dance spring up,” according to Polygon.
