Reverse Trick-Or-Treating Is The Sweetest Halloween Prank

This genius Halloween costume is both a trick AND a treat.

YouTube user Trent Toney and his friend pulled off the ultimate Halloween costume this past weekend. Instead of trick-or-treating like normal, the duo dressed up as the people handing out the candy to trick-or-treaters. They even dragged along a door to make the costume as authentic as possible.

Toney wrote in the video's description that the prank was inspired by a comic illustrated by Doctor Popular. The funny thing is, Doctor Popular created the drawing after a user by the name of np312 posted an anecdote about reverse trick-or-treating on an Ask MetaFilter forum.

"One Halloween our doorbell rang and we opened the door expecting to see trick-or-treaters -- but what was in front of our open door -- was another door!" the comment reads. "Like, a full-on wooden door, that had a sign that said 'Please knock.' So we did, and the door swung open to reveal a bunch of college dudes dressed as really old grandmothers, curlers in their hair, etc., who proceeded to coo over our 'costumes' and tell us we were 'such cute trick-or-treaters!' One even pinched my cheek. Then THEY gave US candy, closed their door, picked it up and walked to the next house."

This comment was posted back in 2009, BTW. So the hilarious video below has basically been six years in the making.
