There’s something about ‘Stranger Things’ that seems to have attracted the nicest people to the cast. Following on from the well-known exploits of David Harbour (who plays policeman Jim Hopper in the show), some Stranger Things cast members have reached out to support a heartbroken boy after nobody showed up to his birthday party.

Young Aaron Alambat held nothing back on his ‘Stranger Things’ themed party, with a kickass cake, Demogorgon blood punch, and party decorations based on the popular TV show creating the perfect atmosphere. Sadly, the classmates that he invited all decided that they would give Aaron’s party a miss. For anybody, let alone a child at school, something like that can be extremely upsetting.

Aaron’s sister Ayen was, putting it mildly, pretty angry with the situation. “My brother invited 8 of his classmates for his Stranger Things party & none of their punk selves showed up,” she wrote on Twitter, together with some pics of Aaron’s sweet set-up.

Her tweet quickly went viral, with tons of sympathetic people offering their support and telling Aaron that they would’ve loved an invite. Ayen’s tweet has since been shared over 57,000 times and eventually came to the attention of some of the cast of ‘Stranger Things,’ with Millie Bobby Brown replying: “What!!!! Oh Well, You can let them all know that everyone on behalf of Stranger Things would’ve come! I think you’re awesome and next year I would like an invite… Please?”

Way to make a kid’s day! Fellow star Gaten Matarazzo also joined in, offering to bring the cake for next year’s birthday bash. Ayen later shared pics of her brother smiling, and it turns out he had an amazing birthday after all, despite the no-shows. They probably regret it now!
