Viral Halloween Candy-Firing Gun Is Sadly Not Real

This somehow qualifies as both trick and treat.

As the calendar turns to October, a particularly clever and particularly topical Photoshop job is going viral. The image shows a guy, safely clad in a face mask and face shield, aiming a Nerf gun (for what it’s worth a red Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K). But instead of foam darts or ball, this particular weapon fires fun-size candy, a standard assortment of which — Crunch Bars, Snickers, Twix, Milky Way— can be seen in the world’s most delicious toy weapon.

If this thing was real, it would actually be a great thing to have in 2020. It’s easy to maintain social distancing with trick-or-treaters if you can stand ten feet away and fire York Peppermint Patties into their pillowcases and plastic pumpkins. And what better way is there to respond to the doorbell and “Trick or Treat!” than by cocking your plastic weapon before spraying the neighborhood children with Starburst.

We can thank Adam Padalla, better known as Adam the Creator for, well, creating the image. It’s the kind of thing that, when it pops up in between news stories about continued spikes in COVID-19 and rantings from unhinged family and friends on Facebook about how Joe Biden is a secret communist, provides a rare chance to crack a grin.

Keep your spooky asses 6 feet back please 😩

  1. Do you plan on sending your kids back to school this fall?
    Yes. I trust that our schools are taking precautions.
    No. We don't feel that proper precautions are in place.
    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.
Thanks for the feedback!
