David Harbour, star of Netflix's Stranger Things, is fond of challenging the internet. Up to this point, he has taken repeated L's—albeit graciously and with good humor. Now he has an opportunity for a huge W.
Back in October, a California tweeted at the Stranger Things star, and asked how many retweets she would need for Harbour to appear in her senior photos with her. He replied that if she got 25,000, he would also wear her school's sweatshirt and hold a trombone.
Sure enough, the girl's original tweet rocketed to the necessary 25,000 and the result was...this:

The teen and Harbour shared the photos two weeks ago, and Harbour started receiving other challenges. A woman asked him how many retweets she'd need for Harbour to officiate her wedding. His fee? A whopping 125,000 retweets.
Less than 24 hours later, she had hit the mark. Harbour is again honoring his word and has said that he really does plan on officiating the woman's wedding if his schedule allows.
And here's the latest Twitter challenge Harbour has gamely accepted: 200,000 retweets for the potential of dancing with penguins. Greenpeace, seeing an easy marketing opportunity, told Harbour he would need that large number for the organization to allow him to travel to the Antarctic and dance with penguins.
Hmm, if you get over 200k we’ll ask the Captain if you can join our expedition to the Antarctic and dance with the penguins. #StrangerThings have happened https://t.co/qT78aIcKOw pic.twitter.com/LmmLceE17J— Greenpeace (@Greenpeace) January 22, 2018
Internet, listen...— David Harbour (@DavidKHarbour) January 22, 2018
I’m a giver. I give and I give.
But now I need you.
I need 200k retweets to go dance with penguins.
Please retweet THIS TWEET.

Harbour has stuck to his word with fan promises, so it would be fitting for the internet to pay him back and virally retweet his entreaty so he can go dance in the Antarctic. It's the Happy Feet reboot we never knew we needed.
