Dustin from Stranger Things has the most adorable Instagram, and nobody can cope

“This boy is the purest thing in all of mankind.”

IF YOU’VE WATCHED Stranger Things then you’ve probably fallen in love with Dustin a little bit.

After all, he’s kind of the best character. (Although admittedly it is very difficult to choose a favourite character because they’re all so brilliant.)

But there’s something about Dustin that’s especially loveable and relatable.


And it turns out that Gaten Matarazzo, the actor who plays Dustin, is just as adorable and lovely in real life.

For one thing, he sings like a literal angel.

But it’s his Instagram that has everybody in bits.

Since Stranger Things launched on Netflix, Matarazzo has found himself stopped by fans of the show who want to get their photo taken with him.

And because he’s loving his newfound fame so much, he has decided to turn the tables and ask his fans to take their photo with him.

I’m starting a new thing. Every fan that stops me and asks me to take a picture with them, I will ask them to take a picture with me because they mean as much to me as I mean to them.

“I got stopped again. Thank you for taking a picture with me.”

“This guy was really sweet thank you for stopping me to take a picture.”

“This was Doris she is super sweet.”
