A good Halloween costume is one that elicits a strong reaction from those around you, preferably of the non-vomit variety. Day One of our series of dress-up ideas gifted the world with the Courtney Stodden mask, made complete only when worn with clear bra straps and a skeezy old man attached at your hip at all times, and now we're fortunate to have something a little less nauseating. It's been proven that Party Rock is in the house tonight, but as inescapable as LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" has been this year, we'd advise against going as Redfoo or Sky Blu, simply because your copy of The Secret will inevitably get lost during the night, leading you to be screwed out of any good fortune for life. Life!
For us, the best part of the pair's video is the Shuffle Bot, who tirelessly powers a crowd through the many steps of this foreign dance craze without so much as a peep. Get everybody to the floor at your own Halloween celebration by donning this machine-like mask—even if you don't know how, people will think you do simply by association and quickly follow suit. An added bonus? The fact that you don't have to talk to anyone in the process and have an easy exit strategy if things get awkward. Everyday you're shuffling, indeed. Hating is bad, so you might as well join in on the Party Rock craze at this point. It's already been deemed the seasonal soundtrack for a Halloween light show at this Riverside, Calif. home. Party City can't be far behind.
