Online lingerie retailer Yandy has been making absurd Halloween creations for years featuring scantily-clad versions of inanimate objects, government officials, religious figures, and viral memes.
There's been a Sexy Pizza Rat, Sexy Poop Emoji, Sexy Pope...and now, the cheeky company has come up with a "Sexy Mister Rogers" costume.
Officially called “Yandy Nicest Neighbor Costume” that retails for $59.95, the racy outfit features a cropped red cardigan, a collar-and-tie combo, and grey booty shorts. The hand puppets, wig, belt, and socks are sold separately, in case you were wondering.
The description on the Yandy website reads:
Clearly, it's a harmless costume that even the retailer itself poked fun at in a blog post titled "The Yandy Costumes You'll Make Fun of This Halloween."
While some people agree and think it's hilarious albeit ridiculous (which is the point, according to Yandy CEO Chad Horstman), others have predictably taken offense at the jokey sexualization of their cardigan-wearing childhood icon, who is played by Tom Hanks in It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a critically-acclaimed biopic that hits theaters November 22.
