Volkswagen diesel scandal Halloween costumes are out…Seriously

Are you sick of hearing about the Volkswagen diesel scandal, the one where Volkswagen lied to government environmental agencies about the emissions of some of its diesel engines? Well, if you aren’t and if you’re mad at Volkswagen for it and you have literally nothing else to wear to a Halloween party, then there’s a costume just for you.

HalloweenCostumes.com has just released a costume bundle to buy that will help you create your very own DIY Volkswagen dieselgate costume. That’s right, not only do you get to wear a costume that is a joke that no one else at the party will understand, you get to make it yourself! When you buy this bundle, it gives you what seems to be a Mario Kart costume, a gas mask and some materials to make cheesy looking exhaust fumes. All of this so you can be a joke that most people won’t care about. Fun!

Seriously, though, this is kind of ridiculous. I really see no actual attraction to this this costume, as it’s poorly made, it’s a joke that isn’t funny and you have to work to create it after paying for it. It’s ridiculous. I’m all for cruel jokes, if they’re funny. But this one isn’t funny, costs too much money and requires quite a lot of assembly. This isn’t even worth wearing if it was free. But hey, at least you’d be the joke of the party, just not the joke you had originally thought.
