When it comes to the internet, David Harbour is the hero we need. The Stranger Things star has the best Insta game, an abundance of viral Tweets and several memes to his name. Here’s why he’s the undisputed king of the world wide web.
He keeps his promises – with excellent results
Last year a fan Tweeted Harbour asking how many retweets she’d need to get for him to appear in her senior yearbook photos with her. Harbour responded saying 25k, and that he’d have to be able to hold a trombone.
25k. And I get to wear the school sweatshirt and hold a trombone. https://t.co/xPNEE681J4

And did the Internet just laugh at his witty riposte and let it lie? Absolutely not, the tweet racked up the thousands of retweets needed to reach the target.
Always gracious, Harbour kept up his end of the bargain, and starred in what could be the best series of yearbook photos ever.

He never learns
After he racked up 25,000 retweets mad quickly last time, you would have thought Harbour would have learned the power of the Internet. So when Ericka sent an innocent tweet asking what it’d take to get David Harbour to officiate at her wedding, you’d have thought he’d pick a massive number. Instead, he went for 125k, well within reach.
125k retweets. Provided date works with s3 shooting schedule, I will get ordained and perform ceremony. I get to read an esteemed love letter of my choosing, and after the cake is officially cut, I get the very first piece. #allthecakes https://t.co/rSku8qD7uT

And within 24 hours the target had been achieved. Try going for a cool mil next time.
He’s totally meme-able
Remember when his excellent Dad dancing in series two of Stranger Things went viral? And then was edited to have a series of absolute bangers playing in the background?
Or what about when Harbour donned a bonkers Christmas jumper, and the Internet went a bit mad with it:
We are truly blessed.
His Instagram is basically a Joe Keery fan page
Being the pure, angelic pal that Harbour is, his social media accounts regularly feature him bigging up his Stranger Things co-stars; but nobody features across his Insta more than Joe Keery. Sharing their friendship:

And comparisons of the two:
He literally used Instagram to find somebody to go to the Stranger Things premier instead of him
When David Harbour couldn’t make it to the season two premier of Stranger Things, he decided that a fan should take his place.
Fans had to do their best Chief Hopper impersonation, and they were in a chance of winning. And as previously discussed, David keeps his promises, so two fans of the show enjoyed the evening instead of him.

The lovely winners of #hopperneedshelp trying in vain to represent me at the premiere. Sorry, ladies, but you are far too adorable to pass for a bearded middle aged man but your efforts are still appreciated. Hope you had fun, and thank you for helping your local Hawkins PD.
God bless you David Harbour, we truly don’t deserve you.
