Cool Horror Videos: Tom Hanks as David S. Pumpkins on SNL

I'm sharing this largely as a public service - as you make your way out to Halloween parties over the next week, you might run into people dressed in jack-o-lantern suits who attempt to scare the hell out of you with a cheerful demeanor and some dance moves. To ensure that this experience won't be too baffling for you, you need to see the video below, which is kind of baffling itself... and yet so strangely entertaining that I have watched it multiple times.

The clip is a skit from this past Saturday's episode of Saturday Night Live. It's called "Haunted Elevator" and the SNL YouTube account offers this description:

A haunted elevator attraction tries to spook its riders (Beck Bennett, Kate McKinnon) with an original character, David Pumpkins (Tom Hanks). 

You can't just describe David Pumpkins with words, though. You have to see him for yourself, and apparently a lot of people among the millions who have seen this skit liked what they saw so much that they plan to be Pumpkins for Halloween. In the days since the episode aired, brick and mortar and online stores alike have already sold out of the pumpkin suit the character wears. There's going to be a whole lot of David S. Pumpkins out there this year.
