About

Chrissy, Wake Up Remix is a remix song by YouTubers Schmoyoho that samples scenes of the character Eddie Munson from Stranger Things season four yelling at Chrissy Cunningham to wake up from Vecna's trance. The remix was made as an alarm for people named Chrissy and went viral on TikTok in June 2022 as the subject of lip-dub videos and as a general background track.

Origin

In the season four premiere of Stranger Things, released on May 27th, 2022, a cheerleader named Chrissy Cunningham goes to Eddie Munson, an outcast and leader of the D&D club "Hellfire Club," to buy drugs that might help her sleep, as Chrissy has been having nightmares and hallucinations due to the season's antagonist, Vecna. Chrissy goes to Eddie's house to get some special K when she enters Vecna's trance. Eddie tries to snap her out of it by shaking her and yelling, "Chrissy, wake up," but it does not work (shown below).



On June 10th, 2022, remix artist Schmoyoho posted a video to TikTok[1] captioned, "made an alarm for all the Chrissys and Chrises" where he Duets a version of the scene while playing the piano to it, gaining over 13.9 million views in three weeks (shown below).
