Do you have 12 hours to kill? Are you a Stranger Things‘ Dr. Alexei stan? Well, I have some news for you: Netflix just released a YouTube video featuring Alexei sipping on a 7-Eleven Slurpee for 12 hours straight.

The video comes after the release of season 3, which premiered in July. Our sweet, sweet Dr. Alexei is known for his love of cherry-flavored Slurpees.

“To honor our Slurpee sipping hero, we are pouring one out for our pal. Sip along,” Netflix wrote in the description of the YouTube video.

Fans who have 12 hours to spare can watch Alexei, played by Alec Utgoff, slurp it up to the instrumental tune of “Cold Comfort” by the Heinz Kiessling Orchestra.

So far, viewers seem to be loving it.

“Bro who else finna watch this the whole dayyy,” YouTuber Dream Peach commented on the video, with many others echoing similar sentiments.

However, there is one viewer who isn’t too pleased.

“I feel cheated,” YouTuber DEIVION212 wrote. “I was promised 12 hours, I only got 11:58:35. Now I have 1:25 of extra time to fill.”
