An ’80s classic just got a bit stranger.

Stranger ThingsGaten Matarazzo parodied Technotronic’s hit song “Pump Up The Jam” in an Upside Down version of the 1989 music video. In the video, the 14-year-old actor grooves and shakes and raps to the tune of the song.

“I don’t want just any giveaway. Get your booty in the story today. Win 100k,” he raps in the clip, touting a giveaway at Old Navy.

“Yo Dudes!!! Instant Happy scratch and win game is at @oldnavy!!! NOW THRU BLACK FRIDAY score $100K and more incredible prizes. Play the in store game and win! #happyistrending,” Matarrazzo wrote in the post.

There’s a one in a million chance that you have of getting it – most likely you get it from a parent, but it just happened for me,” he said. “I have a very mild case so it doesn’t affect me as much, but it can be a very difficult condition to have.”

He went on to say that being in the spotlight has helped others with his disorder.

“The feedback has been great,” he says. “A lot of people were messaging me saying, ‘You made me feel better about myself, that you can show that you have this condition on TV and embrace it.’ I feel like I’m raising awareness for it. It makes me feel good.”
