A Minnesota boy whose mom recently purchased a silly “alien abduction” Halloween costume for him treated his family to a hilariously over-the-top performance in the getup.
Video by Sadie Christgau shows six-year-old Tripp’s way epitomizing how actions speak louder than words, as the boy gave life to the costume representing an alien wrapped around a human body.
With his legs in the alien suit but his face coming out of the human half, Tripp pretended to be abducted by an extraterrestrial visitor and dragged out of the room – but not without putting up a fight.
Christgau told Storyful that Tripp had been begging her for the costume since he first saw it in a Halloween-themed shop.
“The moment it arrived, he rushed to get it on. He wanted me to take a video of him pretending to be taken by the alien” she said. “Little did I know, he put on a pretty convincing show.”
