    "Guess We Woke Up Vecna": 15 "Stranger Things" Bloopers That Would Brighten Even A Demogorgon's Day

    "Wait, you guys didn't shave my head, did you?"

    Now that we are in the midst of the long winter of our discontent — which in this case means the wait between seasons of Stranger Things — it's the ideal time to take a look back at some of the cast's on-set antics, as revealed in a series of blooper reels. Here are 15 times the cast danced, broke props, repeatedly said the word "boobies," made each other laugh, and made the crew concerned for their safety while filming.

    1. When Millie Bobby Brown was so in character that the presence of a camera threw her off.

    8. When Joe Keery said this and tempted the Netflix gods...

    Joe saying, "I can't wait for the mashup where they get us saying 'boobies' 100 times"

    ...which was naturally followed up by this montage of them saying "boobies," if not quite 100 times, enough times to make an impression.

    9. When Gaten Matarazzo slipped on set and reassured witnesses that it was all just part of the process (of living life).
