Hey everybody, my name is Qcknd and I look very different in a tank top. Hey, everybody is QckndAnd today I'm going to be talking aboutStranger things and you can probably tell by the title of this video. I might be talking about it a little negativeSo some background IThought I was a pretty big stranger things fan. I have made multiple multiple stranger things videos on this channelI you know really let the fame go to my head when I was featured in this BuzzFeed articleYou may have been wondering where my video has been for season three and it's out thereIt was just claimed by Entertainment one for having a milly milly rock remixsong in it and spoiler alert that song he's not in my video and when I calledEntertainment one to ask them to pull the claimI heard them listen to the video in the background and then they blocked my phone numberI had to call them from my boyfriend's phone and that's when they told me to get a lawyerThey claimed a video that's worth around four dollarsToday, I want to talk about stranger things in the eye of pop cultureI asked you guys yesterday on my Instagram at quite cool kiddo you feel like stranger things has been killed by pop culture and I bring that up becauseat first you knowI noticed some things popping up here and there a little bit of merch that I found a tad bit questionableBut you know kept my spirits high because I do really love stranger things but more and more and moreI felt like I was being suffocated with stranger things licensed products and although that happensI guess - everybody's fandomI wouldn't explain why this has been such a shock to me and maybe to you guys as well because theoverwhelming response from you guys wasYes, I feel like pop culture has taken stranger thingsSo, let's go back to the beginning let's go back to in stranger things first startedIt showed up on Netflix and all of us were like what what is this?We didn't watch it when it premiered because we just didn't know what it was. I don't remember any hype around stranger thingsI just remembered stumbling upon it for me. Netflix has been an experience where for the longest timeI felt like I was the only one on itI signed up for Netflix when it first became a streaming platform and I want to say that was in2009 or 10 I've had Netflix so longI remember paying four or five dollars for a month and I have never cancelled since I have been a member forTen years. I used to watch netflix on my Nintendo Wii and that's where I fell in love with itIt had the weirdest things on it like this situation from the Jersey Shore workout videosIt had every episode of Miami Ink on it and it's where I started to watch the officeI just felt like I had stumbled upon something. That was just mineI was like, I'm not paying cableBut I will pay for Netflix and even when I moved into this big house with a bunch of people in itI was the one who had Netflix on my wii and we would gather in my room and watch documentaries that I felt likeScraped the bottom of the earth and just like Dede lists horror moviesit was great Netflix felt like such a dump so as Netflix hasBusted into the mainstream. I always had that kind of memory of Netflix beingnessJust thing I had access to and it was exciting and weirdSo when stranger things popped onto the scene, I felt like it was indie and I think this phenomenon is something that we're allExperiencing, but maybe we just can't put our finger on it. I felt like stranger things was indeed because Netflix has been a place wherethings developed outside of cable and outside of mainstream andAt the time I felt like no one was gonna give this show a chance and that's why it ended up on NetflixIt had been my opinion of that before because a lot of the stand-up comediansI liked we're getting specials on Netflix and just for my little monkey brainI thought oh no TV or it would pick this up. So there must be something about it. That isn't popularSo I watched it and I thought you know, wow, what idiotsNBC didn't want to pick this up. This wasn't on MTVIdiots crazy after that though it became very publicI feel like that Netflix was putting a ton of budget in their original seriesMy Netflix account went up three different times and now I pay$15 a month versus the five I used to pay andAll of that makes more sense to me and sort of takes away that like starry IndBut at the time I really felt like I had stumbled upon something special watching stranger things for the very first time was amazingIt was the first time I felt really connected with a new and originalSeries everything about it the nostalgia the soundtrack the soundtrack made me salivateIt was so goodand at the time I don't know why I didn't recognize a stranger things featured Spotify playlist was probablyMainstream but playing it. I was like, oh my god. YeahFinally someone believed me that electronic music is good and around that time. I got really into itSo I made the stranger things look book the stranger things look book for me was kind of a celebration of something that I feltLike belonged to me and belonged to the couple people on Twitter who agree with meI really felt like it was a celebration of something I really liked and thought that I was entering like a fandomFinally like for me that I could participate in from the beginning because I didn't watch Harry PotterUntil I got my wisdom teeth taken outSo I was already way too far behind to get into that phantom and I've never read comic booksSo I would be completely fucking lying if I told you one thing about spider-manSo this just felt like it was something that was my own and I really loved the way that felthoweverI don't think I realized I was sharing that with millions of people and I'll tell you why after that andAfter making my stranger things costume and things like that a couple months had gone by and you started to hear like Little Joelike little likeAround the office memes of like did you watch stranger things and I was a shampoo girl at the timeso it was a lot of likeAsking people what they were intoQuickly and which stranger things came up we would connect and then it turned into me recommending stranger things so I could talk about itAnd then everybody at some point had watched stranger thingsSo then that recommendation was kind of over and at that pointI feel like there wasn't a ton of merch at least in the official sense in my own mineI had created and made a bunch of costumes and a bunch of stranger things thingsAnd you guys were sending me DIYs that you made or I was buying pins from independent pin makers or EtsyThose places seem like the only places to get stranger things merch and if you saw someone wearing something stranger thingsThe odds are it was bootlegging because the licensing for all of these things didn't really existI think Hot Topic was the first person to pick it up and I remember just like having a little comment about it like ohYou're gonna pay$70 for an 11 costume. I made mine for two pennies the next year like Party City or somethingtotally ripped off my strange things wall costume even selling a licensed string like necklace andYou can say it a bunch of people can have the same idea at the same time, and it's not biting but the necklaceseems convenientAll of this kind of seemed like I was being force-fed a ton of stranger things thingsand at the same time I felt like all of the products were very veryRushed like nothing. Nothing really super unique about it and the common little catchphrases andmarketable moments and the show seemed to be like justKilled and fed to us again and again like friends don't lie. That wasn't really a huge part of the showIt wasn't really a huge plot thing now. Is it time for me to probably mention? I am a stranger things tattooSo what the fuck am I doing here? I want to bring you to present-day and why some of us orGenerally, most of us have this weird feeling about stranger things all thisSo this time around I feel like the third season of stranger things isInsanely hyped like I'd mentioned before I didn't even know about season 1 and what was so great about itWas that the people who were cast were either?relatively unknown or already like cultClassic like Kol identified people which again just made it feel indeedAnd now all of these kids have become celebrities in their own, right?I was one of the first people to feel really uncomfortable when people were approaching them in the streetI was one of the people to be like protect Milly Bobbi Brownbut all of these kids now are a list celebrities and you see them in the commercials and you see them in Godzilla theirNotoriety is making it really strong and all of the promotion is leading up to it is just making itextremely extremelyMainstream, so I just want to go through some of my favoritesort of likelicense fees for what is going on with stranger things right now and I have like20 tabs open yesterday and what started all of this was?Stranger things for target. So I was at a target Express yesterday to buyface wash I don't know and I noticed that they had a little stranger things kiosk andit was just a couple of shirts that like I said felt really rushed and thrown together, but if you go onTargets website they have their very own stranger things page where things are breaking up and broken up into categoriesAll with this like very 80s themedSplash town USA Grillin and chillin style to the max cool at school and then they have scoopsahoywhich I think is just the ice cream shop that they work at some of the characters work out in season 3 andthen they haveraddest categoriesEntertainment clothing action figures things through the home costumes and stranger things party suppliesThis is all just at Target. So just going into some of these thingsThey just see insane and I know as an Evangelion fan. I'mStepping on some toes saying this since eva has the craziest merch everBut there's just something about that merch that excites meAnd this doesn't and I can't tell you what those things areunless it's just like the over piling ofThese brands trying to understand something that in my mind. I denote it as indie, but it's not indieI tell myself that every dayStranger things isn't indie, but it doesn't compute because it's designed to be so indeedSo next we have pop colors, which I guess is stationary companyAnd these are stranger things licensed colored pencils the upside brownFriends don't lilac, you knowKind of cool next Nike also has a license with stranger things right nowAnd like I said, there's only so much you can do so they want the hawkins visitEdy kind of category where they release clothes that look like clothing in the carat of the characters in the movieWhich is like kind of cool you can have this fit for$70 or you can come down here and have the hawkins high school t-shirt for $40Which I own I got it from my costumes last year. It is currently in my BroncoSo, it's DOA or you can get the stranger things sweatpants for 65Popkin school cap for 32 Nike I guess is the more premium approach for your stranger things merch or you cancome to forever 21 andGet your stranger thingstracksuit I meanThis one is kind of one of the cooler ones. I've seen I'm not gonna lie. It's pretty sickit's kind of like an all-out approach to this butI just don't see myself in it very seriouslyLike I just don't know the occasionbut I will say one of the cooler ones but there's just like not enough content tosupport this level of merchandiseLike it says the upside-down Mike Lucas Dustin 11And then there's some other stranger things licensed merch for forever 21 as wellI do like this one this like11 basic graphic t-shirt seems like some of the more bootleg stuff that you might remember from season one. IloveNext we head over toPolaroid and one of you guys actually gave me the heads up that Polaroid was having a collab with stranger thingsSo you can get a stranger thingsPolaroid set for a hundred and fifty seven dollarsI don't know if they usePolaroid in season three or if this is just like a this item also occurred in the 80sNext mongoose bike slave bikes that they use in the show actually came out with a special licensestranger things mongoose bike becauseWhy not take full advantage of your item?Being in stranger thingsSo stranger things has kind of always been available at hot topic and that's just how it goesHot topic gets a lot of like fandom licensing, but I thought this piece was kind of crazyIt is a demo gorgon yard sprinklerWhich you know, is it for kids is it for adults like I don't even knowThey blew it up, but they're not showing how it works. And then of course you can have a Steve body pillowI mean IDo really appreciate this? I think that that is great. Um, Steve is one of my favorite characters likeThis one is fanserviceThis one's fans onlyEven Urban Outfitters got in on the funWhich like if you want to feel like you are the only indie stranger things fan you can have this barb poster in your houseWith your palm leaf and your fluffy pillowThis one just deserves an honorable mention because I thought it was sick. Here is aStranger thanks van flip moving enamel pin. I mean that's pretty dope. Do you guys still like an animal pins?next Havaianas came in on here and got some stranger things licensed flip-flops andHmm also took the lifeguard approach. Remember the lifeguards stuff from TargetWell, hmm had the same idea at the same time to be released on the same day and it is the Hopkins pooledlicensed swimsuit and my question here isDo you buy this because all your friends bought it and you all want to look cool or do you buy this?pulping that you're the only one this is so unique to me becauseMaybe because I was never in like a Star Wars fandom where all your friends do dress that way and that's what's coolBut again, like trying to wash the leg idea that this movie's indie is just tough again with H&MYou have this like cooler approach. Where is the Hawkins Indiana typeface shirt? That's like a teaisInteresting, but you could pair it with your stranger thingsCortezNikes for a hundred and twenty bucks you can get the real freaking deal and get your stranger things licensed Nike sneakersWith the Hopkins high school emblem on the back. I just it's a is it overkill like I don't knowthen you can eat some soup with your stranger things character mug play some stranger things Ouija board andDecorate your desk with thisstranger things MLBBobblehead this one. I don't get at all. I really don't get this at all in conclusionI just feel like with all of these items all of this licensing stuffit's all fighting for the limited budget and attention ofStranger things fans which feels skeptical of all of this stuffanywayat least in my pocket of the internet you guys feel skeptical or evenDisenchanted by all of this and I share the same feeling are you a fan?But you don't want any of this merch because even when I was starting this videoI thought am I not even a stranger things fan? I don't own any of this stuff. I don't own anyOfficially licensed stranger things items. Not one. The Hawkins shirt I have is a bootleg and all the other stuffI have either I made or you guys made but I'm a hypocrite because right now I am watching Evangelion chick items on eBaySo, I don't know I wanted to ask you guys how you feltDo you feel this enchanted by the big push of this franchise?Are you still excited for season 3 and you're going to watch it?I am skeptical of course because I've put a lot of my heart into stranger things and a small piece of my skinBut I also just want to like stuff and I don't want anyone to bother me while I just like stuffLet me know how you guys feel and give this video a thumbs up shareYour opinion in the comment sectionI would love to know how you feel because I'm just one person and in all of this. I am still very neutralI still can't wait to watch the premiere tomorrow and talk about it with the two people I interact with in real lifeAnd I've been looking forward to it. Even if Milly Milly Rock took down my video. I have been following along anywayI love you guys. Follow me on instagram at quiet cool kid and until next time. Bye

Or maybe i'm being dramatic. So in today's video I wanted to share with you guys why I believe we all thought stranger things was a chill, lower budget indie production but actually it's one of Netflix strongest franchises, and additionally I wanted to share just some of the insane amount of merch, and types of merch, there is out there for our beloved, stranger things.

< start="288.46" dur="6.29">All of that makes more sense to me and sort of takes away that like starry Ind>

< start="294.75" dur="7.829">But at the time I really felt like I had stumbled upon something special watching stranger things for the very first time was amazing>

< start="303.669" dur="3.739">It was the first time I felt really connected with a new and original>

< start="308.289" dur="6.11">Series everything about it the nostalgia the soundtrack the soundtrack made me salivate>

< start="314.4" dur="1.12">It was so good>

< start="315.52" dur="6.23">and at the time I don't know why I didn't recognize a stranger things featured Spotify playlist was probably>

< start="321.909" dur="2.75">Mainstream but playing it. I was like, oh my god. Yeah>

< start="326.02" dur="5.509">Finally someone believed me that electronic music is good and around that time. I got really into it>

< start="331.529" dur="5.85">So I made the stranger things look book the stranger things look book for me was kind of a celebration of something that I felt>

< start="337.379" dur="4.2">Like belonged to me and belonged to the couple people on Twitter who agree with me>

< start="341.58" dur="5.97">I really felt like it was a celebration of something I really liked and thought that I was entering like a fandom>

< start="347.83" dur="5">Finally like for me that I could participate in from the beginning because I didn't watch Harry Potter>

< start="352.9" dur="1.789">Until I got my wisdom teeth taken out>

< start="354.689" dur="5.55">So I was already way too far behind to get into that phantom and I've never read comic books>

< start="360.24" dur="3.959">So I would be completely fucking lying if I told you one thing about spider-man>

< start="366.639" dur="6.019">So this just felt like it was something that was my own and I really loved the way that felt>

< start="372.659" dur="0.611">however>

< start="373.27" dur="6.679">I don't think I realized I was sharing that with millions of people and I'll tell you why after that and>

< start="380.139" dur="6.769">After making my stranger things costume and things like that a couple months had gone by and you started to hear like Little Joe>

< start="387.08" dur="1.239">like little like>

< start="388.319" dur="5">Around the office memes of like did you watch stranger things and I was a shampoo girl at the time>

< start="393.319" dur="1.991">so it was a lot of like>

< start="395.31" dur="1.889">Asking people what they were into>

< start="397.199" dur="5.63">Quickly and which stranger things came up we would connect and then it turned into me recommending stranger things so I could talk about it>

< start="402.83" dur="2.91">And then everybody at some point had watched stranger things>

< start="406.05" dur="4.279">So then that recommendation was kind of over and at that point>

< start="410.33" dur="6.42">I feel like there wasn't a ton of merch at least in the official sense in my own mine>

< start="416.75" dur="5.129">I had created and made a bunch of costumes and a bunch of stranger things things>

< start="421.879" dur="5.82">And you guys were sending me DIYs that you made or I was buying pins from independent pin makers or Etsy>

< start="428.129" dur="6.68">Those places seem like the only places to get stranger things merch and if you saw someone wearing something stranger things>

< start="435" dur="5.059">The odds are it was bootlegging because the licensing for all of these things didn't really exist>

< start="440.27" dur="5.73">I think Hot Topic was the first person to pick it up and I remember just like having a little comment about it like oh>

< start="446.159" dur="1.32">You're gonna pay>

< start="447.479" dur="6.679">$70 for an 11 costume. I made mine for two pennies the next year like Party City or something>

< start="454.159" dur="7.559">totally ripped off my strange things wall costume even selling a licensed string like necklace and>

< start="462.81" dur="6.199">You can say it a bunch of people can have the same idea at the same time, and it's not biting but the necklace>

< start="469.56" dur="2">seems convenient>

< start="472.529" dur="4.64">All of this kind of seemed like I was being force-fed a ton of stranger things things>

< start="477.599" dur="3.77">and at the same time I felt like all of the products were very very>

< start="481.56" dur="5.779">Rushed like nothing. Nothing really super unique about it and the common little catchphrases and>

< start="487.979" dur="3.35">marketable moments and the show seemed to be like just>

< start="491.879" dur="7.76">Killed and fed to us again and again like friends don't lie. That wasn't really a huge part of the show>

< start="500.279" dur="6.47">It wasn't really a huge plot thing now. Is it time for me to probably mention? I am a stranger things tattoo>

< start="506.819" dur="7.16">So what the fuck am I doing here? I want to bring you to present-day and why some of us or>

< start="514.709" dur="3.65">Generally, most of us have this weird feeling about stranger things all this>

< start="521.44" dur="4.25">So this time around I feel like the third season of stranger things is>

< start="526.269" dur="5.51">Insanely hyped like I'd mentioned before I didn't even know about season 1 and what was so great about it>

< start="531.779" dur="2.429">Was that the people who were cast were either?>

< start="534.79" dur="2.9">relatively unknown or already like cult>

< start="538.3" dur="4.34">Classic like Kol identified people which again just made it feel indeed>

< start="542.64" dur="4.109">And now all of these kids have become celebrities in their own, right?>

< start="652.009" dur="4.669">Stepping on some toes saying this since eva has the craziest merch ever>

< start="659.949" dur="4.919">And this doesn't and I can't tell you what those things are>

< start="665.359" dur="3.44">unless it's just like the over piling of>

< start="669.499" dur="6.59">These brands trying to understand something that in my mind. I denote it as indie, but it's not indie>

< start="676.299" dur="2">I tell myself that every day>

< start="678.319" dur="6.109">Stranger things isn't indie, but it doesn't compute because it's designed to be so indeed>

< start="844.29" dur="1.669">Being in stranger things>

< start="845.959" dur="5.55">So stranger things has kind of always been available at hot topic and that's just how it goes>

< start="851.7" dur="4.879">Hot topic gets a lot of like fandom licensing, but I thought this piece was kind of crazy>

< start="856.97" dur="3.51">It is a demo gorgon yard sprinkler>

< start="861.12" dur="5.839">Which you know, is it for kids is it for adults like I don't even know>

< start="867.6" dur="7.07">They blew it up, but they're not showing how it works. And then of course you can have a Steve body pillow>

< start="938.519" dur="2.66">licensed swimsuit and my question here is>

< start="941.61" dur="5.839">Do you buy this because all your friends bought it and you all want to look cool or do you buy this?>

< start="947.64" dur="3.559">pulping that you're the only one this is so unique to me because>

< start="951.75" dur="7.159">Maybe because I was never in like a Star Wars fandom where all your friends do dress that way and that's what's cool>

< start="958.92" dur="6.559">But again, like trying to wash the leg idea that this movie's indie is just tough again with H&M>

< start="965.48" dur="5.489">You have this like cooler approach. Where is the Hawkins Indiana typeface shirt? That's like a tea>

< start="971.769" dur="1.3">is>
