As part of the massive promotional blitz for the next season of Stranger Things, Coca-Cola is bringing back New Coke, an infamously failed beverage from the 1980s.
Last month, the Coca-Cola Company unveiled a short ad for New Coke that incorporated some new footage from Stranger Things Season 3, which takes place in the summer of 1985.
Now, the Stranger Things Twitter has released the extended version of that commercial.

In addition to several short scenes from the show where Mike and Eleven and Dustin and Max share close moments, the clip also reveals an extended scene between Steve and Dustin.
While the two see a movie together, Steve gets a New Coke and some popcorn from the concession stand. After he brings his food back to the theater, he begins flirting with a girl named Tracey before Dustin starts pouring Milk Duds into the popcorn.
The presence of New Coke, which was discontinued after three months on the market, firmly places this moment in the summer of '85. In this season of the blockbuster Netflix series, the Hawkins, Indiana kids will find themselves growing up and growing apart as they must face the increasingly powerful forces of the Upside Down.
Created by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Priah Ferguson, Cary Elwes, Jake Busey and Maya Thurman-Hawke. Season 3 will debut on Netflix on July 4.
