Halloween is only a week away. If you’re in a relationship, that means you’re probably deciding whether or not to coordinate costumes with your partner. But how do you stand out from the sea of ordinary couples costumes? The internet started coming up with ideas—several of which are based on old Vine clips.

There’s Walmart rat.

Thicker than a bowl of oatmeal.

You could do birthday gift.

Guys who play guitar.

And a bunch of others.

How about Bible study?


Idiot sandwich is an excellent choice.

Even though Twitter announced that it would kill Vine a year ago, people are clearly still attached to the short-form video service. And its archive.

If you do decide to convince your partner to dress up as a Vine reference, you may have to explain your costumes to every single person at a party. But at least you won’t be another Sandy and Danny.
