More peculiar Things is known for its promise to fusing ’80s popular culture into the show, and the most recent season gets a dearest melodic symbol.
The arrangement gave a shoutout to Weird Al Yankovic in two unobtrusive Season 3 shoutouts. In the second scene of the period, science educator and A.V. club boss Mr. Clarke sticks out to the spoof lord’s “My Bologna,” a brazen hit at The Knack’s “My Sharona.”
In the following scene, Dustin wears a vintage Weird Al shirt — he’s plainly a fan.
The declaration started a couple of jokes about naming the show Weirder Things.

Some were simply upbeat that Weird Al was back in the spotlight.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN A WEIRD AL SONG IS IN AN EPISODE FROM THE NEW STRANGER THINGS SEASON???!?

Mr. Clarke’s geekiness truly sparkled in this scene.
The best thing so far in Stranger Things Season 3 is definitely the science teacher painting D&D miniatures in his garage, next to his model train layout, while listening to Weird Al.
I felt that on a spiritual level.

Nah, this is one of those instances where Stranger Things is really great at little character details; uber-nerds Mr. Clarke and Dustin would totally be Weird Al fans!

The BTS armed force might be solid, however Weird Al has an army of abnormal geeks pulling for him.
