Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo raps in Old Navy commercial

Posted on

Gaten Matarazzo is keeping the ’80s nostalgia coming.

The Stranger Things actor is the star of a new Old Navy commercial, which features him rapping about the clothing store’s upcoming Black Friday deals while dancing to the tune of Technotronic’s 1989 song “Pump Up the Jam.”

The ad’s visuals are also a nod to the original music video; however, in the place of neon-colored soundwaves, you have images of all the things the store is giving away as part of its Instant Happy sweepstakes.

This isn’t the first time Matarazzo has shown off his musical talents. Before playing Dustin on Stranger Things, he played Gavroche in Les Misérables on Broadway, and prior to his Netflix debut, he belted the national anthem at a Mets game.

Watch the ad above, and if you want hear a Matarazzo-penned rap, check out the ad’s behind-the-scenes video below.
