Peso Pluma Crashes Netflix’s Exclusive Halloween Party as Iconic ‘Stranger Things’ Character

Netflix hosts a star-studded Halloween bash where Peso Pluma dresses as his doppelganger, Mike Wheeler.

This year, Netflix pulled out all the stops for its star-studded Halloween bash, featuring a mix of actors, characters, and content from its diverse catalog. Among the invitees was none other than Mexico’s Iñaki Godoy, star of the hit live-action adaptation of ‘One Piece.’

Yet, standing at the entrance, not quite part of the costumed revelry, was Jalisco-born singer Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija, better known as Peso Pluma.

The Doorkeepers’ Dilemma

The bouncers were quick to challenge the corridos tumbados singer. “¿Y tu disfraz, wey?” one of them inquired. But Peso Pluma was ready with a swift transformation that would not only gain him entrance but also cement his status at the exclusive Netflix soirée.
