Are you a Stranger Things fan? Yeah? Me too. Did you watch the Season 2 spot that aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday? Me too! Did your reaction to said spot involve holding your breath for a full 30 seconds followed by "Oh my God!" several times and then a profanity or two when your brain finally registered the huge f*@#$%g monster thing at the end?

Yeah, me too.

Well, we weren't alone. See, the stars of our favorite movies and shows often don't get to see footage of their projects beforehand, especially if those projects involved lots of heavy post-production FX work. So, the stars of Stranger Things were seeing that footage for the first time too, and lucky for us, they filmed it.

Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers on the show, posted a video of himself and co-stars Finn Wolfhard (Mike) and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) watching the spot as it aired. They were ... a little excited, to put it mildy. Check it out.

The video is a fun reminder that these kids are having just as much fun with the show as the fans are, and it's also an adorable little ray of light that's going to help me through this week.

Stranger Things returns on Halloween.
