What appears to be a lovable, family friendly scarecrow costume is actually a total nightmare. And the gag works on both adults and small children, wonderful!

This was dreamed up and put into action by Ed Bassmaster, and you gotta watch the whole video for the overall hilarity. Just promise us if you try out this prank, do NOT get beaten to death with a skateboard.
