The internet has finally reunited a long-lost father and son.

Since “Stranger Things” came out on Netflix, fans immediately noticed a resemblance between Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) and Jean-Ralphio Saperstein (Ben Schwartz) from “Parks and Recreation.”

Theories began popping up that the two characters were related, with Harrington being Jean-Ralphio’s father, which Schwartz later “confirmed” in a video for “The Late Late Show.” Now, in possibly the greatest moment in internet history, the pair has finally met.

“Dad and son meet because the internet,” wrote Schwartz on an Instagram post Tuesday.

These two had a lot of father-and-son catching up to do.

“Did a lot of growing up today,” Schwartz captioned a picture, in which he finally learned how to shave.

And, then, for the grand finale: matching flannels.

What’s next? A father-son outing to Mirkwood? Perhaps the two will stop at Benny’s for some Eggo waffles. Either way, you can bet they’re gonna be cranking the cuteness up to Eleven.
