For over 40 years, Saturday Night Live has been bringing us hilarious and memorable characters that branch out into the occasional Halloween costume. From the Spartan Cheerleaders to Wayne’s World, to The Coneheads or even Chris Farley’s iconic motivational speaker and traveling salesman, Matt Foley who lives in a van by the river — SNL has been the inspiration behind so many clever costumes.
And if you watched this past weekend’s episode, that sentiment definitely continued with the night’s guest host and Academy Award winner, Tom Hanks at the helm of something gloriously bizarre. Of course with the way this year has been though, there’s nothing scarier and often times, funny than that which we do not understand.
Enter David S. Pumpkins — an icon that is bound to be the best thing that came out of 2016. And frankly, it’s going to be a cult costume for the years to come because it’s so random. Already hailed a legend and cult favorite from critics and fans alike, Pumpkins brings a bizarre joy to the screen with his random silliness and a unparalleled gleeful tone in his voice.
