Fred Armisen had a little fun on the Emmys red carpet outside of Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday. The 48-year-old actor inexplicably chose a Freddy Krueger theme for his awards show outfit, wearing a red-and-green striped tie with a white collared shirt and a textured black suit.

Armisen took the outfit to the next level with the Nightmare on Elm Street killer’s famed glove. He held his clawed hand up for photos, rocking what was perhaps the most talked-about red carpet accessory.

Armisen acclaimed IFC show Portlandia is nominated at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, facing off against Drunk History, Inside Amy Schumer, Key & Peele, and Saturday Night Live.
