HOLY HELL: This Museum Sold 80k ‘Stranger Things’ Dino Jumpers In One Day
A non-profit museum has been inundated with buyers wanting to get their mitts of a dinosaur jumper which appeared in Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things.
The Science Museum of Minnesota website crashed before selling at least $3 million worth of purple Brontosaurus hoodies in one day.
The museum’s ‘Thunder Lizard’ logo jumper was worn by character Dustin Hendersen (played by the awesome Gaten Matarazzo) in the first episode of Stranger Things 2, and was originally sold in the mid-1980s as part of a travelling exhibit.
With a returned resurgence in popularity, the Science Museum of Minnesota brought back their classic hoodie. On Tuesday the item was released online and over 80,000 hoodies were sold in a single day, selling out and crashing the museum’s website. Damn.
The jumper will be restocked later this week, so check the website for updates.
So, who wants one?
