Nike & Burger King Are The Latest Brands To Partner For “Stranger Things” Promo
- Nike is launching limited edition “Stranger Things”-themed, 80s-inspired sneakers
- The collection includes shirts and shoes printed with the logo of the show’s fictional school Hawkins High and will be available for purchase starting June 27th
- BK has also jumped on the Stranger Things bandwagon & they’ll be serving “upside-down” whoppers (if you don’t know the “upside down” is the alternative universe in then show)
- The “upside down whopper” is literally just a regular whopper with the bottom of the bun on top, and the top of the bun on the bottom, so if that isn’t cool enough maybe the vintage 1980’s packaging from BK will be more of a draw

- A woman accused an intoxicated Gooding of groping her at a Midtown Manhattan bar on Sunday. He denies the allegation, and attorney Mark Heller says security footage will exonerate him.
- Gooding has made good on his promise to turn himself in to police today (Thursday) -- even though his lawyer had cast some doubt on that this morning. He's been charged with one count of misdemeanor criminal touching.
- Meanwhile, a second woman has come forward with a groping allegation, but it dates back to 2008, beyond the statute of limitations in New York.
