Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most popular content creator, due in part to her experience in competitive dance — but her acting skills could use some help, as seen during her collaboration with Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp.

Actor Noah Schnapp is best known for his role as Stranger Things’ Will Byers, who — spoiler alert — was stuck inside the Upside Down during the Netflix show’s first season, later using his connection to the alternate dimension to save the day as the series continued.

The 15-year-old star has grown up on camera, and much like D’Amelio, found fame at a very young age, with the two celebrities coming together for a surprise collaboration at the end of March.

Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp collaborated with TikTok star Charli D’Amelio for an impromptu acting class.

D’Amelio used her choreography skills to teach Schnapp a few moves, which they broke down in her hometown dance studio.

Schnapp returned the favor by giving the TikTok star an acting class, which took a hilariously unexpected turn.

For his impromptu session, Noah tasked Charli with recreating a scene from Stranger Things season one, which shows character Joyce Byers losing her wits as she hears Will’s breathing over the phone, desperately hoping her son is alive and safe.

“It’s perfect,” Schnapp said of the scene.

“What do you mean it’s perfect?” she shot back. “It’s hard!”

“You just have to like, cry and freak out,” he explained. “You’re basically talking to me. Just pretend I’m on the other end of the phone.”

Schnapp coached D’Amelio through one of Stranger Things’ more emotional scenes – which the TikTok star was understandably intimidated by.

Considering the high emotional intensity of Winona Ryder’s character, D’Amelio did her best to replicate her fear and desperation — but ended up being a little too over the top, breaking out into laughter after throwing her phone across the room.

“I think, soon, we will definitely be casting you on Stranger Things,” Schnapp joked after “wrapping” the scene. “I think you should check your emails, in case you get an email from the director.”

This isn’t the TikToker superstar’s first stint in the acting world, either; she also admitted to doing a bit of voice acting for a movie during her collab with James Charles.

While there’s no telling if the silver screen is in Charli’s future, she’s definitely got some chops, according to Schnapp — but we can’t say if she’ll make an appearance in season four, just yet.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

How to go to the moon with MrBeast
Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
