On October 16, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard quoted a line from Superbad (2007) in response to Seth Rogen's (Superbad's Writer) tweet and fans love it.


Let's rewind.


WSVN 7 News reported that the police had arrested a man from Iowa for possessing a fake ID while in a bar. A very normal occurrence... except for the fact that it was a Hawaii ID card with the fake name "McLovin" and a birth date of June 3, 1981.


Superbad (2007) fans will immediately know that the exact information from this "fake ID" was taken from Superbad (2007) in the scene where Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) obtains a fake ID with the details above.


Of course, when Seth Rogen, one of the writers of Super Bad (2007), saw this, he immediately retweeted the news report, with the comment, "My work here is done."


Queue Finn Wolfhard who sees the tweet and then hilariously responds to it with the line "It was between that and Muhammad". Again, fans of Superbad (2007) will be in the loop when they recognise the exact line from the movie and know that this line was said by Fogell in his defence to his friends, Seth and Evan, for his reason of choosing the name "McLovin".


Anyway, fans loved the whole exchange and commented below more lines from the Superbad's (2007) conversation, including, "Why the f*** would it be between that and Muhammad?" as well as "Muhammad is the most common name on Earth. Read a f***ing book for once."


Watch the whole iconic scene here.


Meanwhile, the news report included a mugshot of the arrested man who is grinning widely in the photo. Fans commented on how "proud" the man appeared to be and how "totally worth it" the whole prank was.


Tidbit: According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, the man had gotten the fake ID from Amazon.



Ghostbusters (2020) hits US theatres on July 10, 2020, and Stranger Things season 4 is expected to start shooting early next year in January 2020.
