Wow. They captured the 80s mall. 

Missing the Merry-Go-Round, Spencer's, and Chess King, but pretty spot on.

Stranger Things & Coca-Cola Reviving New Coke As Season 3 Tie-In

Stranger Things and Coca-Cola are teaming up to bring back New Coke with a very 80s influenced ad. The series' third season will take viewers back to Hawkins, Indiana, where the show's main group of spirited teens dig a little deeper into the spooky happenings surrounding their small town. Unlike its predecessors, the new season will be released on July 4 instead of during the Halloween season, with the show taking place in the summer of 1985. It's a setting filled with more fun-in-the-sun rather than ghosts and ghouls, but a few shots from the trailer show that the kids have more in store for them this time around than just the Starcourt Mall and some Fourth of July sparks.

I was like 1 when New Coke came out. What made it so bad? Comparable tasting cola? 

It was a cover for Coke bottlers completely ditching cane sugar for fucking corn syrup.  

That’s my conspiracy theory and I’m sticking to it.  I know Coke had already stared switching away from real sugar before then, but none of the “Classic” Cokes had sugar.

The new season is gonna be so epic. For only having 17 episodes, there is a lot of character development and people to really want to succeed.

Steve Harrington really went from being a hated character to one of the best in a short # of episodes.

It was because Coca Cola was finally losing their patent. That’s what a former food chemist at Coca Cola in Atlanta told me.

The other conspiracy theory was it was so they could remove any trace of coca from the product.

It is increasingly freaking me out how much Millie Bobby Brown looks like a young Elizabeth Perkins.  I noticed the resemblance back in season 1 but now it's just uncanny.

Holy shit.  I’ve never noticed that, but thanks for sticking that in my head for the rest of the weekend.  

Appropriate too since Perkins was in half my 80s favorites growing up.

The soundtrack for this series is pretty great. I'm really digging the remix of Baba O'riley. I just rewatched the series in anticipation of the upcoming season. I'll probably watch it again in a week or two.

^Not the first time a Netflix exclusive has used that song. It featured several times in a show called Sense8(an OK sci-fi show).

Agree.  The trailers for both this season and last had pretty good remixes of popular 80's songs - Baba O'Really and Thriller (last year).

Baskin-Robbins, Coke and Nike at least put some effort into their tie-ins.

It took a couple tries before they got it right. First they tried the fries and then the drink.

Looks good to me.  Unfortunately, I'll be traveling to TN and then back with some friends.  After waiting a dang year and a half, I'm going to have to watch this at least a week after it's out.

Meh. They’ve gotten too far away from what made S1 so good. Just looks like some sci-fi/horror thing now. Not really my thing.

Pepsi
It tasted like flat over-sweetened Coke.
Actually it's Diet Coke.
