As we inch ever closer to the July 4th release date of the third season of Netflix's smash hit sci-fi/horror series Stranger Things, the young stars of the show have been increasingly making the rounds to build up excitement.

And on last night's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, they got a chance to do what they do best: scare the living crap out of some unsuspecting fans.


Fallon brought the group of teens to Madame Tussaud's in New York City's Times Square, a popular tourist destination known for its life-like wax statues of Hollywood's elite.

Here, the cast, joined by Fallon all decked out in his best Barb attire (RIP), pretended to be their wax counterparts as groups of people passing through the museum came to have their pictures taken.

But little did the fans know that they were, in fact, surrounded by the real deal. And the sly teens certainly made them pay dearly for that assumption, with hilarious results.

Of course, after the initial fright wore off, the fans were all pumped at a chance to meet the stars in the flesh, and a good time was had by all.

The best reaction maybe has to go to this guy, who straight up told Jimmy Fallon how stupid he looked dressed as Barb.

As expected, the cold open of this past weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live lampooned the first two days of the public impeachment hearings.

Single people can be thrown the most invasive questions. So of course, they have to find witty answers. This is partially to save face, but also to make the other person embarrassed for even asking.

Being an exotic dancer is generally not necessarily people's vision for themselves as children, but the financial draw of the job is pretty great.

A person can basically pay tuition with the amount of money they walk away with from working in a club. It's a very lucrative thing. But it also draws a crowd that is rather unusual, as it is an unusual job.

Everyone is afraid of something, but for most of us it's something that "makes sense" like spiders, snakes, etc. That's not the case for everyone, though.

Being accused of things you didn't do is annoying and can be infuriating even in the best of situations. Sometimes, though, the thing you're accused of is so ridiculous that you can't even be mad.

For example, I had a group of friends I would chat with online. One day, the elderly father of one of those friends got a phone call from Florida saying the friend was in trouble and needed bail money.

Some of us are lucky: We have good neighbors. We each go about our business; no one makes any noise or brings any drama into each other's lives... It's quite simple, really.

But others aren't so lucky, and chances are pretty high that you've been one of those unlucky people. (As have I, sad to say.)
