Think you have a great costume for Halloween this year? Well, this Kentucky weatherman is about to put yours to shame.
A weatherman named Jude Redfield got really creative while reporting the Halloween weather forecast on Friday morning for Louisville, Kentucky’s, WDRB. Mr. Redfield decided to green-screen himself, and the result was pure brilliance.
Thanks to green-screen technology, Redfield looked like his head was floating above a skeleton’s body as he pointed to the weather map with his bone hand and gave local residents not only the latest on the upcoming rain showers but also a great laugh.
To make the WDRB Halloween news even more awesome this morning, the rest of the crew decided to get in on the action, and an anchor even tried to put candy into Redfield’s skeleton ribs — but he just didn’t have the stomach for it.
If you’re wondering how this is even possible, well, thanks to Twitter, there’s a behind-the-scenes shot of Redfield, which shows him wearing a green morphsuit with a fake plastic skeleton sewn onto it.

Super-spooky and super-awesome! We salute you for going all-out this Halloween, Mr. Redfield. However, this is not the first time that Redfield has gotten by with a little help from the green screen. According to Today, last October he went headless on the air after the Cincinnati Reds lost in the MLB playoffs.
