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.
Stranger Things Have Happened
For anyone who’s been tuned into popular culture, the resemblance between Peso Pluma and Mike Wheeler from ‘Stranger Things’ is uncanny. Finn Wolfhard, who portrays Mike, has been a subject of constant comparison with Peso Pluma, fueling a steady stream of memes over recent months. Netflix seized this golden opportunity for a crossover, creating an unforgettable Halloween moment.

“In the video, Nicki Nicole’s alleged boyfriend smiles and says: ‘Now I’m Mike, dogs,’ with all the right characterization,” revealed the official Netflix Latin America social media account. The platform was quick to celebrate this pop-culture collision, announcing: “It became canon! On #NetflixHalloween anything can happen. Peso Pluma already has his costume, now I want to see yours,” and further adding, “Peso Pluma + October: Peso Wheeler.”
Social Media Erupts with Praise
The blend of appreciation, humor, and sheer fandom was palpable across social networks. Reactions ranged from “Vengaaa Peso,” and “Amámos,” to assertive statements like “[In the USA] we are going to dress up as Peso Pluma,” and “This is why I pay Netflix.” The successful stunt sparked comments such as “Peso Pluma reviving Netflix” and “I crave that Halloween party,” underscoring the triumphant merging of Netflix’s entertainment worlds.
Whether or not Peso Pluma’s foray into the world of ‘Stranger Things’ will open doors for future collaborations remains to be seen. One thing is for certain: this Netflix Halloween party was one for the books.
