Just when you thought you'd heard the last of Barb, the internet finds a whole new way to keep the love going.

Stranger Things, Netflix

A Redditor named jujuness posted a picture of their co-worker with a distinctly Stranger Things-esque look...

Get ready - this is pretty dead on!



Uncanny right?

But here's the even crazier part - she is actually called Barb!

My coworker brought in her senior picture from the 80's. Also her name is Barbra and goes by Barb. She's a red headed older woman, super nice and, a great nurse! She said she was freaked out when watching the show, because she saw herself. I would be too!
