Thanks for bringing these two guys (and their amazing hair) together internet!

YOU GUYS—the “Stranger Things” universe just got strangely better now that our favorite show theory has sort of come true.

No, I’m not talking about the whole list of reasons why Barb had to die (RIP, m’girl) or why Eleven has to be Hopper’s daughter and the monster. I’m talking about how Steve (played by Joe Keery) is the father of Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz) on “Parks and Recreation.”

They look alike, their hair is really tall and fluffy and sometimes they have douchey tendencies even though deep down they’re sensitive souls (Ok, that might just be the case for Steve, but STILL.


Last night, something great happened—Steve and Jean-Ralphio hung out which is enough proof that this theory is true. EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE NOW.

They did father-son bonding activities like shaving, while wearing matching outfits.

They also did this hilarious/slightly creepy video wearing matching flannels.

I mean, how can anyone think they’re not father and son?! They have the same wacky sense of humor and a luscious head of hair.

I’m all for Jean-Ralphio making a guest appearance on “Stranger Things” and meeting his future father. They can shave and sing songs while they’re at it. Anything is possible in the Upside Down universe, right?
