Ben Schwartz gave us the ‘Stranger Things’/‘Parks and Rec’ crossover we’ve been waiting for

Father and child reunion: Steve Harrington just met up with the man who”s obviously his son from the future, Jean-Ralphio.

ICYMI, HitFix”s sister site Uproxx theorized earlier this summer that Steve, Nancy”s beau in Stranger Things, is the father of Parks and Recreation“s Jean-Ralphio.

A couple weeks later, Jean-Ralphio, a.k.a. his real-world alter-ego Ben Schwartz, confirmed the theory is true.


And things got even better today, when Schwartz sent out an incredible Instagram video and adorable Twitter photo with Steve and Jean-Ralphio together again at last.
