Watch This: Stranger Things In A Small Irish Village


If you’re like us you’ve been making your way through the latest Netflix show Stranger ThingsIt’s combination of Spielberg style charm and John Carpenter style mood have created a hit that we just can’t help binge-watching. Opening in Irish cinemas August 26th is Irish documentary Strange Occurences In A Small Irish Village, Aoife Kelleher’s look at life in the religious pilgrimage site of Knock, Co. Mayo. And, well, both these things have the word ‘strange’ in the title, which is honestly a stronger basis for a mash-up video than you usually see on the internet. Check out this ‘trailer’ that combines the two here:

The video by devilabit starts pretty effectively, with Stranger Things‘ score adding an air of menace to Aoife Kelleher’s pans across the Irish landscape. And honestly, in village’s like Knock, “an owl attacking Eleanor Gillespie’s head because it thought her hair was a nest” is exactly the kind of strange thing that might happen. That or the Virgin Mary showing up. The video essentially puts the audio of one trailer over the other, but let’s be honest, both these things have the word ‘strange’ in the title and that’s a stronger basis for a mash-up video than you usually see on the internet. You won’t be seeing Mike, Will and the lads supping on a TK red lemonade while they play their D&D, or Nancy Wheeler shifting Steve Harrington instead of practicing for her Irish oral. Still, it’s a better mash-up than you usually get. At least the Tardis doesn’t show up in the video. Maybe we’ll check back with devilabit in October and see if there’s a Doctor Strange Occurrences In A Small Irish Village video that puts Benedict Cumberbatch in a big cape in Knock.
