So the whole world has been gripped by Stranger Things 2, let’s be honest, the Netflix Original series is an absolute banger. Now, a strange fashion trend has emerged from one of the shows main protagonists.

Everyone’s favourite character, Dustin Hoffman, is seen wearing a Science Museum of Minnesota ‘Brontosaurus’ hoody. Normally this wouldn’t mean much, but it sent roughly 80,000 people to the non-profit organisations website.

“For us, we’re just relishing this opportunity to be connected to the popular show, especially one that has characters that are interested in science,” said the museum’s public relations director, Kim Ramsden. “As a nonprofit, all of the proceeds will go back to our mission of science and education and inspiring other young kids like Dustin on the show and his friends to have an interest in science.”

It’s said that the Museum has made roughly $3million from this one hoody alone.
