Home Depot’s gigantic skeleton is Halloween decoration of the year

Behold as an enormous rubber lich heralds the final ruin of the American republic—and then check out Home Depot’s 12ft Halloween skeleton, a $300 investment where the first nightmare is simply getting it home.

The seasonal viral seasonal sensation of 2020, the Home Accents 12 ft. Giant-Sized Skeleton with LifeEyes stands head and shoulders (and sternum, and pelvis) above the rest of the normie Halloween junk on offer. There is simply no way to pose this thing that doesn’t make it menacingly large. It’s a tribute to the self-subverting quality of American consumer excess: something intended as safe, smooth and bland is transformed by sheer size into a looming satanic presence dominating suburbia.

“The Home Depot giant skeleton is the only good thing to collectively happen to us this year,” writes @ashleyeleanor on Twitter. “I love him.”

Compare to the Japanese demon Gashadokuro.

The skeleton even has fan art

UPDATE: Sold out. They can be found on Amazon and eBay, but the prices are spooky.
