When Halloween Costume Ideas Go Bad

Halloween Costumes is an example of a one-joke premise executed perfectly, a task that is anything but easy.

In the case of this video, it involves the hypocritical nature of topical Halloween costumes and ISIS and constructs a brilliant satire built around society’s one-sided views of what’s acceptable and what isn’t.

The premise is that a man dressed as an ISIS militant is berated for donning an offensive costume by people in arguably equally-offensive costumes that are, regardless, frequent choices that don’t often drum up controversy.
