‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Buffy’ Mashup: Eleven Slays In Fan-Made Video

The Netflix series gets a killer opening credits sequence.

Stranger Things Buffy


By now Eleven is on her way to becoming a TV pop culture icon, much like the beloved 90’s character Buffy Summers. A brilliant fan-made “Stranger Things” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” mashup video, created by YouTube user Tony Harley, envisions Millie Bobby Brown as the slayer and defender of fictional town Hawkins in a “Buffy”-style credits sequence – and it’s as if these two hit series were meant to be!

Since its debut, the Duffer Brother’s Netflix series became an instant sensation, garnering a strong following among viewers of all ages. Well on its way to leave a mark in TV history, the show has been praised for its homage to the ‘80s, as well as for its talented cast.

“Buffy,” starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, has cemented itself in pop culture thanks to its strong female lead and compelling storylines. Now a cult classic, it’s been named one of TV’s greatest shows of all time by TV Guide, The Hollywood Reporter and Time, among others.
