For any of you who have not finished Stranger Things 3… what the hell is the matter with you? It’s been on Netflix for like ten days or something. You best get on that mug.

And you’ll probably want to stop reading now because yes, there are spoilers.

Alright, now that the uncool kids are reading something else… Stranger Things 3, incredible!! Honestly the show is the best it’s ever been. Believe me, I’d love to discuss the whole enchilada right now but there’s a great little Stranger Things after dinner mint I lone to make you all aware of and yes, it involves next season.

Let’s begin with Murray Bauman (played by national treasure Brett Gelman), you know him as the crazy conspiracy theory dude who speaks Russian and wants to see everyone in a loving relationship. So being that the guy flies as under the radar as possible in 1980’s Indiana, he sort of protective of his phone number, address, overall contact information. But there’s this one episode where Bauman’s digits were spoken aloud.

So with Netflix having an intellectually superior marketing department, found a way to take a simple thing like vocalizing a character’s fictional phone number in a TV show, and turn it into a brief fan experience that could shine some light on ST4.

As NME.com reported on July 12th, you can actually call (618) 625-8313 where you will hear a message from the Murmeister…

“Hi, you have reached the residence of Murray Bauman. Mom, if this is you, please hang up and call me between the hours of 5 and 6pm as previously discussed, okay? If this is Joyce: Joyce, thank you for calling, I have been trying to reach you. I have an update. It’s about… well, it’s probably best if we speak in person. It’s not good or bad, but it’s something.”

Now we’ll obviously be waiting until next season to find out exactly who he’s talking about but myself, and a decent chunk of the Internet, are under the impression Jim Hopper is the subject of Bauman’s “update”. Did Hop-along hop out of the way to safety before the explosion that sealed the gate? Did Jimbo get sucked into the Upside Down only to re-emerge somewhere in Russia?

Unfortunately this particular “wait for next year” is gonna feel like an eternity.

So in the meantime, and if you’ve got like two minutes you’re trying to kill, give that number a call. It’s just a little fun thing to briefly extend your Stranger Things experience.
