Gas Pump Halloween Costume

Inappropriate Halloween Costume #37

From the 2006 Archives:

Target Corp., home to lots of Halloween treats, gets a big ol’ thumbs down on its Gas Pump Halloween Costume. Especially since a jerk might want to pair it with the Arabian Sheik Halloween Costume. See, Gas Pump does not frighten me because I don’t drive a suburban assault vehicle. And even if I did, the pump itself is not scary so much as the politics, corruption and pollution behind it. Conclusively, Gas Pump misses the mark. Beholders might be prone to initially praise its cleverness but that will soon give way to reflection, sadness and the realization that Gas Pump is simply Halloween inappropriate. I might find Gas Pump entertaining, though, if it was lit afire (no really, don’t). Now that’s a statement to the nth degree.

The Gas Pump Halloween Costume is available from Target.
