Local adaptions of familiar book titles, book covers, movie posters, or advertisements must have a puzzling effect on those who created them.

But this time it’s not the design, its the title in its German version. Instead of translating stranger things, someone came up with an entirely different idea and calls the netflix show, Strassenfeger.

A phenomenon that happens when a the German soccer team meets the Dutch team. Everyone runs home to get to see the game on tv. Streets are empty and no one is seen anywhere on the streets.

That phenomenon has a name: Strassenfeger.

Why that is a fitting name to replace Stranger Things, you tell me.
