Now, one TikToker is truly taking their love for the classic Tim Burton film to the next level. This week, they released a video of them giving their car the ultimate Nightmare Before Christmas makeover.
The red carpet is really being rolled out for Nightmare Before Christmas this year. Funko has expanded its collection of the franchise with a highly-anticipated Advent calendar. The company also recently launched an Oogie Boogie Soda that is already selling out.
Disney is also taking things to the next level this year. A Nightmare Before Christmas–inspired fashion line is now available at Hot Topic and shopDisney. As well, fans can get their hands on this Sally-inspired hot beverage mug.
Now, one TikTok user is showing their appreciation for Nightmare Before Christmas by completely revamping their car. TikTok user @smashleekay was recently given a yellow car. Since they are not a fan of yellow, they decided to give the car a Nightmare Before Christmas makeover.
In the video, @smashleekay says they will have the car for at least “six years” so they decided to make the car more their own.
After the Nightmare Before Christmas theme was picked, they began painting Sally-inspired patchwork all over the car’s dashboard. They also purchased Jack Skellington seat covers and other Nightmare Before Christmas accessories for the vehicle.

@smashleekay shares that the project took around four and a half weeks to complete and is still not finished. Since its release, the video has been watched over 300,000 times.
On Monday, @smashleekay shared a follow-up video explaining some additional details and questions regarding the Nightmare Before Christmas car makeover. They share that they currently live in Montana where it doesn’t get too hot so they likely won’t have to worry about the paint getting sun damage. However, they do plan to seal the paint for longevity.
As well, @smashleekay doesn’t have any more big makeover plans for the 2002 Ford Escape. However, they may paint the back of the car and document the transformation on TikTok.
