Buckle up, everyone. This meme is taking us to the Upside Down. In the second season of Stranger Things , our favorite gang of Demagorgon fighters gets another glimpse of the mysterious Upside Down.

Think of the selfie Olympics from a few weeks ago — this one's just a little more extreme. The result is part mirror selfie, part trolling, and part thirst trap. pic.twitter.com/qe4YrF8cNI — Nolan (@NolanR) April 8, 2018 A post shared by ℌ𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔞𝔦 𝔇𝔢𝔞𝔩𝔢𝔯 (@goodluckneb) on Apr 9, 2018 at 4:01pm PDT the stranger things editors are shaking pic.twitter.com/MfUfxDPid3 — lara (@ughmileven) April 6, 2018 Y’all, the trailer for Stranger Things Season 3 is insane!!! pic.twitter.com/2Ih61OInqK — nobody (@YungDaygo) April 6, 2018 A post shared by Dez Paradise (@dezadise) on Apr 10, 2018 at 6:19pm PDT When u find out she’s watches stranger things pic.twitter.com/dO5Roi9SYY — Frank Dragotto (@fragottodrank) April 11, 2018 For some, their attempts at the Stranger Things meme just didn't go as planned. the stranger things phone drop thing didn't work for me... pic.twitter.com/oymOVnSf9P — Rusty Cage (@Rusty_Cage) April 8, 2018 And others got creative with their video edits.
