Video game costumes can be tough, sometimes.

On the one hand, you’re showing your appreciation for something you truly love. On the other, you risk having to awkwardly explain over and over that your costume is from a video game. Well, that happened today.

On the clip above, taken from local Canadian news, one kid goes on TV rocking a Slender Man costume, despite the anchor not getting the reference. Don’t worry kid, I did.

Happy Halloween.
