The creators of Stranger Things were just given a divine gift by social media that they would be wise not to squander as they write season two of their smash-hit Netflix series. During season one, astute viewers noticed the uncanny resemblance between the Stranger resident rich kid, Steve Harrington (actor Joe Keery), and Parks and Recreation fan favorite Jean-Ralphio Saperstein (Ben Schwartz). This led to theories about Steve actually being the father of Jean-Ralphio, and much fun was had speculating about the various ways the two characters could be connected. Well, IRL meetups are even better than fan theories, and Schwartz and Keery have just given the internet the gift of #StrangerTwins by staging a Back to the Future–style family reunion. Behold the matching outfits, the matching eyebrow peaks, matching mouth shapes, and matching best hair in Hollywood of the Saperstein (or is it Harrington?) family line.
