We hope you enjoyed Halloween as much as we did.
One of the highlights of the Halloween season is the entire Archie McPhee store staff dressing up in different costumes for an entire week leading up to (and including) Halloween itself. There have been many truly great costumes over the years. (You can peruse a few years’ worth via the store’s Flickr account: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and of course this year: 2012)
Halloween 2012 is still a few days away, but we’ve already seen a costume that is sure to go down in Archie McPhee history as one of the best. It’s as hilarious as it is frightening. Behold the wonder that is Dan’l dressed up as Slicey the Pig Dashboard Wiggler, the only pig who is so eager for you to taste how delicious he is, he’s already carving himself up for you:
We’ve even got video of Dan’l standing in the street in front of the store, merrily slicing away at himself for passing cars:
Many customers were creeped out and children terrified, so as far as we’re concerned, mission accomplished. Happy Halloween! Who wants some bacon?
The Slicey the Pig Dashboard Wiggler is one of the strangest items we’ve ever made.
Strange items deserve equally strange videos:
Slicey is a vinyl pig who holds a large carving knife to his own mid-section while he grins maniacally. Stick him on the dashboard of your car with the adhesive base and he will go into a slicing frenzy every time you go over a bump. That crazy Slicey, what will he do next?
If Slicey looks a little familiar, it might be because you’ve seen the old French advertisement he’s based on.
Allow us to introduce The Dan’l Show! Starring…wait for it…Dan’l!
Dan’l is so devoted to his demonstration that he gets a bit carried away and encounters some technical difficulties. Let’s hope he recovers to deliver a second episode of The Dan’l Show!
