YouTube prankster Ed Bassmaster is doing his part to get people in the fall spirit by combining two prominent symbols of the season: the scarecrow, representing the harvest season, and the zombie, representing terror.
In the video, Bassmaster is dressed as a happy-go-lucky scarecrow who poses for selfies with hapless strangers ... before ripping off his hood to reveal a blood-spitting zombie face. It is, in a word, cruel. Fortunately, it is also hilarious, particularly when he's getting menaced by a man on a skateboard who wants nothing to do with a scarecrow hungry for brains.
Enjoy, and remember: Scarecrows are always hiding something.
