The Stranger Things ARG is the ongoing investigation of a series of clues related to the show by the same name.



The Stranger Things official twitter has a sequence of emoji in their twitter bio:


They've also tweeted about 🌻🌬️🌈 occasionally, even asking followers to come up with explanations for it.

On the Netflix banner advertising Season 2, an 'Upside Down' Netflix could be accessed by clicking on a glowing area on the right side of the screen. Hidden in this Nega-flix was another instance of the pattern (in this case, 🌻🌈 450) , hidden as handwritten text over the "Children & Family Movies" section.

Hawkins Power and Light

A poster was found in a NYC subway advertising the fictional company Hawkins Power and Light, from the Stranger Things universe. When the phone number appearing on the ad is called, 1-888-355-8703, the caller is prompted with a menu containing a series of options:

Transcript of menu:

When option number four is selected, the transmission is interrupted with a sequence of tones. These were identified as dtmf, resulting in the following string: 5309746849872

Additionally, some callers were given the option of submitting their address, and later received a box of Hawkins-related items.
