Tom Hanks's David Pumpkins Skit on Saturday Night Live

This Bizarre SNL Skit With Tom Hanks Is All You Need to Get in the Halloween Spirit

The most recent episode of Saturday Night Live features a few Halloween-themed skits, but the most memorable (and bizarre) one comes courtesy of Tom Hanks. The Sully actor was on hosting duty for the ninth time, and although it isn't his most hilarious episode, his appearance in the "Haunted Elevator" sketch has us more excited for Oct. 31 than ever. Hanks suits up as "David S. Pumpkins," who Kate McKinnon's character describes as "just a guy in a pumpkin suit with two b-boy skeletons" and who is one of the "creepy" attractions on a "100 Floors of Frights" elevator ride. Compared to other characters like a homicidal waiter and a suicidal bride, he's not even remotely scary, but it's Tom Hanks wearing a bad curly wig, breaking out some terrible dance moves, and speaking in a weird voice. As David Pumpkins would say, "Any questions?"
