Tom Hanks is going as David S. Pumpkins for Halloween
Tom Hanks didn’t have to look too far for his Halloween costume this year.
On Monday, the actor tweeted out a picture of a suit printed with a jack-o’-lantern pattern, revealing that he plans on dressing up as Saturday Night Live character David S. Pumpkins this Oct. 31.
“Oh, I HAVE my costume! Any questions??!” the Inferno actor tweeted, referencing the popular sketch.
Hanks’ David S. Pumpkins character debuted as part of the “Haunted Elevator” sketch, which aired when Hanks hosted the most recent Saturday Night Live episode. In the bit, Pumpkins and his b-boy skeletons try and fail to scare a couple played by Beck Bennett and Kate McKinnon. Depending on who you asked, it was either amazing or the worst. However, the character clearly gained a few fans: The memorable costume starting selling out soon after the sketch aired, and someone inserted the instantly iconic character into several classic horror films.
Watch the hilariously odd sketch below.
