DMV employee dressed up as a sloth for Halloween, and it's magnificent
Halloween has wrapped up for another year. Truthfully, I'm a little sad that the season of creepy movies, trick-or-treating, and costume parties is finished, and all we can do now is take a look at some of the amazing outfits people have come up with. Some have scared the pants off of us, while others have wowed us with their ingenuity.
But the best costumes of all times are the ones that are hilarious to behold. If you're a fan of all things cosplay, then Halloween is probably the best time of the year - which is why we thought it would be a good idea to show you one of last year's best Halloween costumes - which might well be a solid contender for the title of 'Best Costume Ever.' I'll let you guys decide that.
Back in 2017, an employee from a DMV in Southern California was photographed wearing an ingenious costume which referenced the Disney movie Zootopia. In one scene, the protagonist duo of Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde (played by Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman respectively) visit a DMV in a city of other anthropomorphic animals, which is staffed entirely by agonisingly-slow sloths. The DMV employee had decided to dress exactly like the sloth Flash, donning a green shirt and necktie, and wearing makeup
Paolo Ramos, who witnessed the bizarre spectacle, stated: "He was doing his job. And that was it. [Doing] exactly that made it funny. The DMVs are notorious for being slow. So whether it was on purpose or on accident, he didn't have to do much to be hilarious. ... Whoever the employee is, we would like to thank him for making us laugh. Kudos all around."
Zootopia has been a well-loved by the cosplay community. Commenting on the moral of the movie, and its appeal to fans, director Byron Howard stated in a recent interview: "We looked at a lot of campy films like Mr Smith Goes To Washington and Mr Deeds, and with those kinds of characters are all about having a pure core that once they go out into this big, tough world, you're not sure if they are going to survive. There’s a big, cynical world."
He added: "A lot of people mock and poke at their philosophy and you hope that these characters you love are going to survive but it is tough. With Judy, she does have this great desire to go out there and do something her life, make a difference and help people but what we love about her, I think, is she does have this flaw, a very, very human flaw and she makes a pretty terrible mistake but the fact that she grows and steps up and owns it is pretty amazing ... it's an amazing maturity story."
I guess it does go to show that DMV employees really do have a sense of humour ... even if they are a little on the slow side.
