In case you haven’t had your fill of “Stranger Things” content, the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” has you covered. Last night’s episode contained a parody of the popular Netflix series featuring Stephen Colbert as Matthew Modine’s Hawkins laboratory scientist character Dr. Martin Brenner and Millie Bobby Brown playing her character Eleven. In the sketch, Colbert orders Eleven to heat up a burrito in the microwave and levitate it over to the table. “But why, Poppa?” she asks. “Because sometimes you’re hungry and you don’t feel like getting up,” he responds. Then he makes Eleven make a crushed Coca Cola can dance. Watch the sketch below, as well as Colbert’s interview with Brown where she discusses her fears.
