Click above to watch the video after the jump

We're a couple months past Halloween, but this video was just too good to pass up. A gentleman with an old XBox steering wheel, a fake skeleton and a couple black lights managed to scare the holy hell out of some folks by making it look like a glowing blue skeleton was driving his car. How did he do it? The key is to have a right-hand drive vehicle and a little bit of creativity.

The Halloween prankster rigged the steering wheel to his Toyota Sera by propping it up on a 2x4 stand and holding it in place with a heavy bag of pennies. He painted the skeleton white and added a couple black lights in the door jam and attached to the sun visor. He then dressed himself in all black and waited for night fall. The end result is a scary-looking blue skeleton that's ready to send a chill down the spine of the living. Hit the jump to for the full rundown on how it was done – it's worth it to hear the screams emanating from onlookers.

      • 5 Years Ago
      That's really a great idea. Why limit it to Halloween though?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Maybe put a christmas hat on the skeleton for the christmas touch.

      The scariest part of the video was how he was operating that video cam while driving around pedestrians.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Umm he's driving a manual? He's not recording with his hands you know.

      I think it would be real cool if you wired up a simple circuit to make the Xbox wheel turn when you turned the car, that would really be freaky.

        If you think it's so simple, go ahead. Let us know when you're done.

        We're waiting.

        Well get to it then!

      He really needed to have someone filming from another car to get the reactions of passersby. Great idea though.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Unfortunately that would require friends.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hahaha... those authentic screams were funny. :)
        • 5 Years Ago
        Funny how you can tell without actually seeing them those girls had been drinking.
