    Chad's Crappy Corner & The Second Gadget For His New Theme For October!

    Chad polled our loyal Patreon (the great folks who keep our show alive) as to what he should chose for his October them. Their verdict: Cheap Halloween gadgets!

    For his second Halloween gadget Chad went back to Spirit of Halloween and bought the Stranger Things Phone.Yes, Stranger Things, as in the scary Netflix show. And as Spirit says: What would Stranger Things be without this signature phone? Add it to your Halloween costume and you'll have the perfect look! And yes, in case you were worried, it is officially licensed. And the website says: “available only at Spirit of Halloween.


    And Chad's take. Chad likes this a lot. He points out it made of lightweight plastic, but then again it's only $12.99. But the best part is, this phone can be plugged into your smart phone and used as a handset. (Except if you have one of the new iPhones, you'll need an adapter as Chad shows us in his video.) Also as you hear in the video, the voice quality is pretty good. And when Halloween is over this is still a fun thing to impress people with by answering your $700+ cell phone with a retro phone handset.
