In 2019, SNL gave us the gift we didn’t know we needed. One full hour of David S. Pumpkins on a loop. We vowed to remind the world every Halloween season that this video exists. So here you are. Enjoy. 

The following article was originally posted in October 2019.

Happy Halloween, readers! SNL knows us. I mean, they really know us. They’ve given us what we’ve always wanted. Nay! What we needed. One hour of David S. Pumpkins. It’s fantastic. It’s mesmerizing. It’s the best thing. It’s taken me an hour to write this one paragraph because I keep going back to watch the video and now the music is a permanent earworm. Aye Papi!

If you’re not familiar with the sketch, it stars Tom Hanks as David S. Pumpkins with Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan as bizarre Troll-haired skeletons. It takes place in a haunted house elevator ride with David S. Pumpkins appearing throughout the ride. Both the sketch and the one-hour loop are below. Watch. Enjoy. Play the one-hour loop at your Halloween party.
