Death. That’s what Halloween is about, kids. Not candy, not costumes, not “The Monster Mash.” The whole “horror movie” and “scaring people” business is a byproduct of the ultimate thing we all fear at a most fundamental level: our own inexistence.
This is not to say we don’t appreciate a good old-fashioned costume party.
Nor do we have anything negative to imply about general spookiness.
We’d simply like to pour one out — that’s gangster slang — for those who’ve shuffled off this mortal coil.
But enough with the depressing ruminations on our inevitable ephemerality. Today is also a time for celebration! After all, it’s the birthday shared by Vanilla Ice and Willow Smith, two of our personal intraoffice idols. Whip your hairs, you icy babies!
So, on this joyous occasion of the births of our saviors, please view some especially terrifying videos compiled by our creepy curation crew:
And join us in hashtagging:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLOW SMITH AND VANILLA ICE! ENJOY!!!
