But before we do any of that, we must first start the season with a ceremonial viewing of the best f*cking Halloween video on the internet: “Pumpkin Dance."
We’re almost certain that you’ve seen this glorious dancing gourd and his incredibly cool-as-hell moves on the web before. In case you’re a “dancing pumpkin man” virgin, feast your eyes on this…
According to an article we read by WNYC, this brilliant video was originally a newscast (circa 2006), and the idea was sparked by KXVO anchor Matt Geiler. The crew needed to fill up the show with a last-minute improvised segment, so Geiler pitched, “I’ve got this one thing where I put on a unitard and a pumpkin head and dance at people’s graves.” Spoiler alert: They went for it.
Thank god for Geiler’s bizarre hobby, right? So happy (almost) 10th anniversary to you, pumpkin man. You rule.
