While there may not be any trick or treating this year, actor and comedian Steve Martin has already figured out his Halloween costume. Martin took to Twitter to share a photo of his Halloween costume, which has gone viral and attracted over 300,000 likes and thousands of replies.
The costume takes a jab at Vice President Mike Pence, who had a fly land on his head during the vice presidential debate. The fly landed on Pence's head as the pair were debating racial equality and police reform. As you can see from the video below, the fly was on Pence's head for over two minutes before it decided to fly away. As you might expect, those two minutes were more than enough to see the fly start trending on Twitter.
Here's Steve Martin's take on the viral moment. "My Halloween costume arrived," Martin wrote in a caption alongside the image.
As you can imagine, people loved the creative costume. Though some people had some questions, including, "how has steve martin been this age for 40 years?"
While another joked: "Steve Martin is the only thing the Twitter cropping algorithm is good for."
Another added: "Steve Martin. Wins twitter."
