It’s The Watchmen Halloween Dance Party! (Or, Don’t Tell Mom the Watchmen Are Dead)


Topless Robot ends its broadcast day with this bizarre fashion show that was held last year to promote Rubies line of Watchmen Halloween costumes. All of the film’s main characters are represented except for Dr. Manhattan, whose enormous blue wang was apparently too terrifying to be recreated in fabric by the family-friendly company. A few questions: What the fuck is that thing on The Comedian’s head? Did Nite Owl just do the Robot? How come Rorschach prances but Ozymandias doesn’t? How many substances had to be abused backstage for the actors to be able to behave like this? Is utter indignity worth a few Snickers bars?

What happened to the American dream? You’re looking at it.
