'Stranger Things' brontosaurus hoodie goes on sale, crashes website

Sweatshirt first sold in early 1980s

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Customers looking for the hoodie from the Netflix series "Stranger Things" crashed the Science Museum of Minnesota's website Tuesday morning, KSTP TV reports.

Museum spokesperson Kim Ramsden told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that customers are experiencing delays as "thousands" have logged on to buy the brontosaurus sweatshirt that reads, "Thunder Lizard."

The sweatshirt, worn by character Dustin Henderson on the Oct. 27 episode, was from the museum's store in the early 1980s, a news release said.

Ramsden said customers will get through, but it'll take some time.

Customers on the website are being greeted with a message saying: "While we have an unlimited volume of apparel available online, due to high volume our online store has crashed."

The museum will also be selling T-shirts and crewnecks. Prices range from $15-$40.
