    I’ve always wanted to make my own homemade Halloween costume, but I haven’t really had the chance to yet. Maybe this year I’ll try out one of these ridiculous ideas. 😛

    Haha, shitty mummy! Just like you guys mentioned in the Turkish Starwars video!

    Elvis Costello is an existing artist, actually….xD

  • October 4, 2012 at 5:21 am

    I love it how he looks at Mike when he laughs at Underwear-wolf 😀

    This will be my fourth year making a pumpkin. Sadly, Halloween isn’t as big in Sweden as it is in America. But hey! I’ll keep fighting and I’ll win! I have improved over the years ^___^

    I am so going to be a underwear-wolf

  • October 4, 2012 at 9:05 am

    5 and 2 were embarrassing to watch, not very funny. I’ll be handing out candy, I wonder how many shitty mummies I’ll see now…

  • October 4, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Yep, that’s the joke.

  • October 4, 2012 at 11:16 am

    LOL! The random mind of James Rolfe. 🙂
    And I think the only time you’d use real shit is if you went to a scat party. :p

    On another note, last year I went as The Nerd. 😉

    Lol, now im sure a good bunch of yo would actually go with a shitty mummy idea. You can take James’s recipe for a shit from bugs bunny episode to make shit

  • DavidARice

    October 4, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    I’m planning to dress as the Nerd.

  • caffeineadvocate

    I’ve got one. Dress as Jesus Christ and wrap the legs of a blow-up doll (which is also dressed as Jesus Christ) around your waste. Presto! You are “Jesus f*cking Christ”.

  • Squall85

    Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello, yeah, baby! 🙂

    Undearwear-wolf. Pure genius.

    Dress as a werewolf and also wear a Babushka. That’s a Werewolf of Berwyn.

    I thought of League of Legends while watching this. There is a champion called Amumu the Sad Mummy and one of the things he says is ‘Let me give you a hug.’

    I’d love to do the Tyson’s Feeding You, but here in Italy halloween pratically does not exists.

    Don’t faint.

  • October 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    Funny stuff, James!
    And here I thought I was the only person on the planet with that “Tyson’s Feeding You” jingle stuck in his head all hese years.

  • October 4, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    Good one! I love the ones that take a phrase literally.

  • Richard Simmons

    October 4, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    If you’re gonna be Mike Tyson guys, make sure you don’t feed the puppet pork (Mike Tyson is muslim)

  • smallpox champ

    October 4, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    i was wacthing this at work, elvis costello made a customer laugh.

    October 4, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    james when is the premiere of the nerd movie?
    also will it be up for purchase here or on

  • DON

    October 4, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Please, do never ever mention Turkish Star Wars again.
    I watched it once (yep, even before your comment on it James 😛 ) and I’m haunted for a lifetime….

  • thehystericaldude

    October 4, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Mike Mateison
    Step 1. Be Mike Matei
    Step 2. Dress up like Mike Tyson
    That’s it.

  • edwardexcaliber

    October 4, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    My dumbest costume as a teenager was “The Invisible Pedestrian”. Wear all black and then glue yellow lines down your back.

  • koel700

    October 4, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    i’ve been dressed underwearwolf..yeah dont ask..its humiliating, i lost a bet and i put the on a tanga over the fur like i said dont ask :-\

  • marc_lawson

    October 4, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    James, for Tyson’s Feeding You, you should put on a giant Tyson trademarked big bag of frozen ears.

  • Starcraft39

    October 4, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    Pff, I already know my costume this year- BEERMAN!

  • Russ13

    October 4, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    For Tyson’s Feeding you. Of course do everything that James said. But, instead of using boxing gloves wear fake thanksgiving turkeys THAT WAY you don’t have to pick food up with boxing gloves which like James said, “Is challenging enough.” YOU’RE ALREADY WEARING FOOD! HA!

  • Desadaptado

    October 4, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    fucking lost it at underwerewolf

  • Keith the Genesis Geek

    October 4, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    LOL! I was expecting a clip of Mike Tyson knocking out Little Mac … but what am I thining? James sucks at Nintendo games, so of course he’s never gotten that far. lol j/k.

  • ch4rlyb0y

    October 4, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    underwerewolf for the win xD!

  • Undertaker91

    October 4, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    that Star Wars idea could be good or bad depending on the character you pick

  • culwin

    October 4, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    I like how he includes disclaimers for his dumb ideas because his fans will probably go do them.

  • Ricky Vega

    October 4, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    You should have called this the Top 5 Shittiest Costume Ideas.
    That what it’s a joke in itself!

  • Krim420

    October 4, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Terrible! You left out the newest costume on the market! Ric Flair…WOO! That’s right…you too can style and profile just like The Nature Boy. Comes with a robe, feather boa and a replica World Championship belt!! WOO!

  • ST

    October 4, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    I would have thought the dumbest costume idea was Michael Myers, because then you’d end up being run over by a police cruiser and crushed against a parked car, which then explodes.

  • Calavera

    October 4, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Wow this video was horrible, your not even trying any more. Lets see some new videos from Mike, his game videos are awesome. Much better than the latest AVGN. I guess I wouldn’t be too concerned with making good videos either when your fans will watch any crap with you in it. Plus all the money you make from the site and youtube and other things PLUS THE 300,000+ your fans gave you! All I can say is for $300,000+ the AVGN movie had better be awesome and not some dumb horror movie shit.

  • caffeineadvocate

    October 4, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    @ Calavera – You’re entitled to your opinion, crass though it may be. Welcome to October, and enjoy your free entertainment.

  • Belligeron

    October 4, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Man I love it when shit stains come on here to bring nothing but negativity and act like James is obligated to entertain them constantly instead of focusing on making his movie as good as it can be. Funny how cocky people can be when they are sitting in front of a computer instead of a real person. Calavera, I wish I were in front of you right now so I can tell you what a cunt you are. Good day.

  • hammerhorrortexas

    You must be high.

  • Amy

    October 4, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    This was an amusing video. I cracked up completely at the Underwear-wolf. I think its really fun to hear about some of the craziness in your head James.

    Calavera, if you have a problem with James’ videos, don’t watch them. Simple as that. If his fans send him money to help with his projects, what business of that is yours? Sure Mike’s videos are great too, but this was just something fun James thought up and wanted to share with his fans. So have your opinion, but seriously learn a better way to express it.

  • Manpole

    October 4, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    The laugh at the end about the Shitty Mummy looks so fake =p
    However when you actually laughed about the Underwearwolf, yea that was actually funny =)

  • Dolly Dagger

    October 4, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    …shouldn’t Mike Tyson be punching food into Robin Givens’ face?

    Yeah, I went there.

  • FunkyPertwee

    October 4, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    I remember the shitty mummy.

    I may try that one year. Its a pretty funny idea, the others were dumb in my opinion.

  • scat3710

    October 4, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    This should be filed under the top 5 dumbest videos you’ve ever made.

  • October 4, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Those really were dumb ideas, but the Underwearwolf was clever.

  • scat3710

    October 4, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    LoL. yea, I do agree with you on the underwearwolf. That was original.

  • adamL

    October 4, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Tyson’s feeding you… yeah ok, great idea : )
    I’ll dress up like a black man and carry fried chicken around everywhere I go. What could go wrong?

    Dude WCW already had the idea of the shitty mummy way back in 1995. This happened at Halloween Havoc 95 when the Yeti when he emerged from a block of ice to dry hump hulk hogan. He looked like he was wearing used TP when he came down to the ring 😛 everybody should check it out, it’s pretty funny.

    I am actually quite glad that someone just made a WCW reference to the Yeti. The Dungeon of Doom was so terrible.

  • fourplusfive

    October 5, 2012 at 1:32 am

    I’m sorta depressed that I recognized the shitty mummy costume reference from the Turkish Star Wars Review video.

    We had a girl growing up at our school that was named Tyson. Kids would call her Tyson’s chicken. And when a Tyson’s chicken truck drove by they would say hey that is your truck Tyson!! I didn’t feel sorry for her because she was more popular then I was.

  • Haseo55

    October 5, 2012 at 7:59 am

    hahahahaha, man i was also gonna say the shitty mummy

  • LordJason1986

    October 5, 2012 at 9:15 am

    that’s funny. I remember one time dressing up as a rastafarian hobo by wearing a torn sweater and a custom made elder predator dreadlock ski hat. still have it. propably the most effective costume I put together was Jason Voorhees 4 years ago. I had a cheap hockey mask , large winter coat , a cheap plastic machete , had my head shaved , and used black eye liner around my eyes to hide my eyes within the eye socket in the dark. both kids and adults were freaked to the point where they didnt want to come close even to get candy. I did the head tilt and didnt even speak. the effective only lasted twice as the next year I dressed up as Leatherface , and same effect. you can have a cheap budget and a creative mind and still make both kids and adults piss their pants. great video james.

  • October 5, 2012 at 11:22 am

    Just got back from Anime Weekend in Atlanta. The first day, my costume consisted of khakis, a white shirt with 5 pens in the pocket, the power glove, the konami LaserScope, the Super Scope, and the Power Pad cape. The only thing missing was the Uforce. However, after too many rolling rocks, I regretfully admit that I broke the LaserScope 🙁

    OMG its the yeti! THE YE-TE! I’m not sure why in this 2nd mention of the shit covered mummy it reminded me of WCW.

    You could have ironed that shirt James!


  • Ben_from_G-town

    October 6, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    This video isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I thought you would be talking about dumb costume ideas that need to be retired for eternity (hence the Elvis pic), but you made up some truly random costume ideas, instead.

    Still really funny! My favorite is probably Tyson’s Feeding You. It’s a hilarious image. If anyone manages to pull that off, I hope some video or photo is uploaded somewhere.

    I don’t know how it would be physically possible to be the Jabba door droid!

    “Don’t use real shit”. LOL! 😀

  • Maggie1983

    October 7, 2012 at 7:14 am

    Actually, I’ve had the crappy (literally) toilet paper mummy idea before. I always liked Wednesday Addams costume – not the movie or tv show one, but what she said in the movie, “I’m a homicidal maniac – They look just like everyone else.” lol

    Justin Beaver xDD …. The shitty mummy sound nice… jmmm What about a Face-butt with a big Cigar on his mouth 🙂 …. HE definetly look like a Ass face shitting, so when people will ask for it, they only proof It’s a cigar and say “What were you thinking you ass face??” xD

  • caitseith

    October 10, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    The dumbest but real costume this year is the “Mokey Jesus”, based in the ruined Ecce Homo (the ruined Jesus fresco artwork in Spain). I don’t know what is dumber, the idea or the fact it’s so popular.

    one time me and a friend decided to go to a costume party, but didnt have anything to put on. we ended up putting white trash bags over each of us, cutting out holes for our arms and head. then, with a magic marker, wrote “space alien” on one and “white thrash” on the other. it definitely got some attention

  • Hiigara

    February 24, 2013 at 2:46 am

    You mentioned the classic bed sheet ghost, but what if you wore a white bed sheet stained with food and certain “mystery stains”. So what are you for Halloween, a ghost who dived into a dumpster and got in the way of too many homeless? No, I’m a motel bed spread.

    I’m always Jason Voorhees. And i watch a freddy movie every halloween. Part 4 this year. I can’t wait till that scene with the power glove and Freddy.
