“A Penticton videographer has filmed an epic tribute to the Netflix phenomenon “Stranger Things,” shot atop Munson Mountain.

Shane Groot of Lambs Media is a fan of the popular show, and a scene in the latest season got his creative juices flowing.

“I was watching the new season of Stranger Things and when that badass guitar solo came on I thought to myself, I need to re-create this,” Groot said.

“I just got a new camera so I wanted to test it out before trying to use it for professional contracts as well. Munson Mountain’s been such a nice spot for sunsets, so I knew that was where I wanted to film it.”

He recreated an iconic scene in the latest season — no spoilers, other than the soundtrack — atop the mountain, jokingly calling it “Eddie Munson” mountain after one of the series’ characters.

The armoured knight featured on guitar in the video is a character Groot likes to add to what he calls his “silly” videos, outside of his professional work.

“The Pentictoknight is actually a couple of different people whenever I can get someone willing to hop in the armour. In the video is Alex Broccolo (turning on the amp) and Adam Ingram in the armour shredding the guitar. Then I directed, filmed, and edited the video,” Groot explained, adding that the Pentictoknight can be found on TikTok under that handle getting up to shenanigans around town.” –Chelsea Powrie castanet
