‘Stranger Things’ star Gaten Matarazzo starred in a new Old Navy promo video, and it’s just too good to look away! See him dance and sing here!
Gaten Matarazzo, 14, is just too cool for school! The Stranger Things actor was recently featured in an Old Navy promotional ad for their seasonal giveaway, and his performance was priceless!
The Old Navy video was a parody of a Technotronic’s 1989 music video for “Pump Up The Jam.” In the retro-style video, Gaten was captured shaking it off and rapping in front of an animated backdrop. “Scratch of the card. Scratch it off. Any scratcher could be winning. 100K has head spinnin’. Look at all the prices dancin’,” he rapped while getting down in a on-brand hood and t-shirt. “Scratch it off a little more. With crazy good prices at Old Navy stores. I don’t want just any giveaway. Get your booty in the store today with 100K. ” This is seriously amazing!
Gaten, who plays Dustin on the hit Netflix show, also shared a snippet of the promo video on his Instagram on Nov. 18. “Yo Dudes!!! Instant Happy scratch and win game is at @oldnavy!!! NOW THRU BLACK FRIDAY score $100K and more incredible prizes. Play the in store game and win! #happyistrending,” he wrote in the caption. We are loving this video SO much!

Believe it or not, Gaten isn’t the only actor from Stranger Things that has some major rapping chops. Millie Bobby Brown, 12, also showed the world her hidden talent when she guest starred along with her young castmates on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in Sept. 2016. But instead of rhyming to an original tune, Millie recited Nicki Minaj’s, 33, epic song “Monster.” Flawless!
There’s nothing these kids can’t do! While Gaten and his friends are definitely talented in a bunch of different fields, the gang will be getting back to acting pretty soon. Stranger Things has been renewed for a second season, and all of the characters (minus Barb) have signed on for another year! The Netflix original is expected to premiere on the streaming service some time before July 2017!
