PLDT, Smart turned Manila upside down by bringing fans of Netflix’s Stranger Things, an immersive experience through a fun-filled pop-up event held from July to 7 at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium and a grand pyromusical billboard along EDSA Libertad Southbound, also on July 4.

The Stranger Things Fun Fair at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium transported maligners to Hawkins, Indiana during the summer of 1985, with themed booths that let them complete an adrenaline-pumping mission to defeat the Demogorgon into the Upside Down for a chance to win awesome prizes. 

Smart Elite ambassadors Laura Lehman, Curtismith, Ava Daza, Paolo Valenciano, Katarina Rodriguez, Alyssa Gibbs, and Gabs Gibbs dove headfirst into the fun by visiting the ‘80s carnival on its first day.

 Each challenge let visitors earn points, which gave them a chance to take home exclusive Stranger Things 80’s memorabilia. Plus, they got to watch snippets from the latest season along the journey.

 As an additional treat to the Filipino fans, PLDT, Smart, and Netflix mounted the first-ever vertical pyromusical billboard featuring Stranger Things on EDSA Libertad Southbound on July 4.
