Aziz Ansari took Halloween to the next level this year, truly committing to his costume of R&B singer The Weeknd. The 32-year-old comedian rocked a leather jacket and wig to become the acclaimed performer, and then went so far as to try his hand at The Weeknd’s music.

Ansari took to Instagram on Sunday morning to share a Dubsmash video of himself in full costume. Captioning the clip simply, “Happy Halloween,” the Parks and Recreation alum filmed himself miming along to the lyrics of The Weeknd’s hit single “The Hills.”

Happy Halloween.

Ansari closes his eyes and gets into the jam in the black and white visuals, lip-syncing, “I only call you when it’s half past five / The only time that I’ll be by your side.” The actor joins the musicians of indie band Titus Andronicus, who previously covered “The Hills” in September.
