It’s finally October, which means you have less than a month to figure out your costume, binge-watch scary movies and do all of the things that make Halloween the best holiday of the year. There are many different ways to express your love for the spooky season, one being a viral dance to “Spooky Scary Skeletons” that’s circulating TikTok

If you’re familiar with the app, you know that many users often participate in viral trends where they use the same audio or visual effects to make their own hysterical version of a meme. The social media platform is basically the new version of Vine, except most of its users make their videos lip-syncing to their favorite songs or audio clips.

One particular trend that’s been making its way around TikTok ever since school started and pumpkins started showing up in stores is the “spooky season dance.” 

This viral trend was started by popular user Boomer Bradshaw, @minecrafter2011. It involves the person learning a dance he created to the song “Spooky Scary Skeletons.” You can see the original video that started it all below.

While it looks pretty intense, many people have slowed down the dance so other people could learn the steps. The dance is fast-paced and involves a lot of synchronized movements, but once you learn it, you will never be able to stop busting it out whenever you hear this song.
