Sean Astin Went Viral On Twitter Thanks To Photos Of Him Cuddling An Otter

And then the conversation got carried away and before we knew it -- Sean Astin Appreciation Day was born! And we're totally on board! 

It all began when Twitter user @samxgrace posted some photos of Sean Astin adorably hanging out with a cuddly otter, but made the mistake of saying, "Sean Astin from 'Stranger Things'". 

Check out the hilarious transition, from otters, to diapers, to an entire day dedicated to Sean Austin, below!

    No one was more surprised by this show of social media affection than the actor himself, who immediately tweeted the following:

    Then, users grew concerned that people only knew Sean Astin from Stranger Things and decided to educate the younger generation. What followed was an array of tweets that placed a proper focus on his other unforgettable roles.

    Recreation - Amee Vanderpool @girlsreallyrule Sean Astin is trending at #1 because of some adorable otter pictures and the realization that there is a generation that only knows him from Stranger Things. Hence, The Goonies, Rudy and LOTR generations lost their collective minds You gotta love Twitter...and Sean Astin. twitter.com/samxgrace/stat.... @samxgrace sam idk who needed this but sean astin from stranger things with an otter 10.8K 2:37 PM - Aug 9, 2019

    Text - Nicole @Nic_Nic_Nicolah I'm sorry but Sean Aston didn't get through a booby trapped series of cave tunnels to steal One Eyed Willy's treasures to save his house/town, to be known as "Sean Astin from Stranger Things". Y'all l'm DONE. The disrespect! This is our time 7,857 9:57 AM Aug 9, 2019

    Text - James D.F. Hannah @JDFHannah Sean Astin deserved a goddamn Oscar nomination for the third LORD OF THE RINGS, not to be turned into "Sean Astin from STRANGER THINGS." He did not trek all the way to Mordor for that shit. That there's Some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for. GIF 5,252 1:56 PM - Aug 9, 2019
