“Well this is certainly something I didn’t think would actually happen!” This was the reaction of 17-year-old ‘Stranger Things’ fan Damaris Fregoso, when the star of the show David Harbour (AKA Jim Hopper) gatecrashed her senior yearbook photoshoot as promised.
It all started back in October when she randomly shot David a Tweet asking how many retweets it would take for him to come and take senior photos with her.
To Damaris’ surprise, he responded enthusiastically and came up with what he probably thought was a high number. ”25k. And I get to wear the school sweatshirt and hold a trombone,” he said cheekily. But now it was David’s turn to be surprised! The Tweet immediately went viral, easily reaching 25k.
Now many busy, high-profile celebrities might be tempted to dismiss the whole thing as a joke, and fudge the bet by sending a cheesy signed photograph or something instead. Not our Hopper. Three months after the initial Tweet the photos are out and they prove that he really is a sweet guy and a man of his word! Scroll down below to check out the results!
