As if Gaten Matarazzo didn’t already steal our hearts in the Netflix series Stranger Things and while showing off his singing skills on Broadway, the 14-year-old Little Egg Harbor native proved his talents don’t stop there. He’s starring in Old Navy’s 2016 Black Friday commercial, where you’ll see the adorable curly-haired kid rapping and dancing his butt off!
Gaten is seen performing his own rendition of Technotronic‘s 1989 hit dance single “Pump Up the Jam,” spitting lyrics to promote the clothing store’s “Instant Happy” scratch off cards and letting customers know the fabulous prizes they could win from Coca Cola, Chipotle, Fandango, Tiny Prints or the grand prize of $100K a day.
The ad is bound to give viewers a serious sense of nostalgia, from the bright retro background to his classic outfits that closely mirror the ones worn by his character Dustin in the popular science-fiction drama. He even pays a small tribute to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, by performing a signature move of his.
After watching this commercial, Gaten will have you smiling and probably wanting to bust a move of your own!
