Daily Mail – Ken Bone was the breakout start of the last presidential debate, and now he is joining the ranks of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton — as a sexy Halloween costume.
Just days after Sunday night’s live debate, Yandy.com rolled out a costume modeled after 34-year-old Bone, an undecided voter from Illinois.
The company is known for making unlikely costumes a hit, and its ‘Sexy Undecided Voter’ ensemble has already sold out — despite it’s hefty $99.95 price tag.
This story sums everything up. It is the item I want preserved for all time so anthropologists in the distant future can understand everything they need to know about life in 2016. Nothing I’ve ever seen or read so perfectly encapsulates our culture, our times and our very existence.
Of course, Ken Bone becomes an instant legend. Naturally, he makes the talk show rounds and gets an offer to do porn. There was no way he could burst onto the scene in October without being a Halloween costume. And in this day and age, when literally anything can and does get the sexy Halloween costume treatment, from french fries to Mr. Peanut, the Sexy Bone Zone treatment was inevitable. So much so that not even if Yandy.com charged a thousand bucks, it still would have sold out.
This Halloween, this election, this year, it is Kenneth Bones’ world. The rest of us are just living in it.
