Stranger Things season 4 was released earlier this year with many viewers commenting on its much darker tone, horror-inspired scenes, and its new villain Vecna straight out of our nightmares.
And one American couple took inspiration from one of the series’ most iconic scenes when creating their very own Stranger Things decoration.
Aubrey and Dave Appel went viral this week when they posted a video of their creation to TikTok, which depicts a scene in which the character Max Mayfield, played by Sadie Rink, levitates when in the clutches of Vecna.
The video shows a Max figure floating outside of the pair’s Chicago home and it has people online baffled over how they achieved the feat.
The original TikTok video has racked up more than 13.6 million views, with a second garnering more than 1.8 million views.
Dave, 36, revealed that people have been coming to the couple’s home to marvel at their creation and ask how the illusion works.
‘When people started showing up at our house early… they were like, “We saw you on TikTok. How is she up there?” he told NBC News.
The couple describes themselves as ‘Home Haunters,’ meaning they go all out every Halloween turning their home into a scene from a horror film.
They also belong to the Chicago Haunt Builders, a collective of decorators who create terrifyingly detailed Halloween displays at their homes.
‘We’re obsessed with horror, so it’s the best of both worlds,’ Aubrey, 39, said.
The couple created the Max figure from everyday items such as pool noodles and weighted the model so that it looks as realistic as possible, still adding tweaks as Halloween approaches.
Stranger Things can be streamed now on Netflix.
