The History of Spirit Halloween
Before we dive into the 2012 hilarity, let’s take a quick peek into the history of Spirit Halloween. The first Spirit Halloween store opened its doors in California in 1983. It wasn’t until 1999 when they became a seasonal chain store, focusing on Halloween costumes, decorations, and accessories.
The Haunted Hilarity of 2012
The year 2012 was one of the best for Spirit Halloween – full of both hilarity and fear. Here are some of the most memorable moments from that year:
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
During Halloween 2012, a group of friends decided to dress up as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. As they wandered through a Spirit Halloween store, they came across a life-size cut out of their hero, the Red Ranger. They couldn’t resist challenging him to a fight, and things got a little out of hand. One of the friends accidentally knocked the Red Ranger over, causing him to crash into a wall and shatter into thousands of pieces. The group tried to put him back together, but alas, the Red Ranger was no more.
The Gorilla Prank
Spirit Halloween is known for its scary animatronics, and in 2012 they introduced a new member to the family; a life-size gorilla. One daring group of pranksters decided to dress up in gorilla suits and surprise their unsuspecting friends as they walked through the store. The looks on their friend’s faces were priceless, and the gorilla suit prank quickly became the talk of the town.
The Haunted House
One spirit Halloween store went all out in 2012, creating a haunted house within the store itself. Shrouded in darkness and filled to the brim with creepy decor and jump scares, it was a terrifyingly wonderful experience. One shopper was so scared that he ran out of the store and knocked over a Halloween display in his haste.
The Phantom of the Aisle
One employee at a Spirit Halloween store decided to set up a prank on his coworkers. Dressed up as the Phantom of the Opera, he would lurk in the dark aisles, startling unsuspecting employees wandering through. The trick became so popular that even the customers got in on the fun, waiting in aisles for their friends to pass by so they could jump out and scare them.
The Great Pumpkin Debate
One customer took it upon themselves to start a debate in the middle of a Spirit Halloween store. He argued with anyone who would listen that the Great Pumpkin was a superior Halloween mascot to Jack-o-lanterns. Customers, employees, and even children got involved in the debate, with both sides presenting convincing arguments.
