Look Out, Bill Belichick Will Be Spying On You Right Through Halloween
October 3 / Rick Chandler / SportsGrid
I'm heading over to Home Depot right now to pick up my Scary Peeper Creeper ($30), the Halloween prop which you suction-cup outside of a window to make it look like a fiend is looking inside. Of course to Jets and Bills fans this will be extra creepy, because Creeper is pretty much a dead ringer for Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
Ah! The horror!
Creeper has already terrorized Canada to the point where he's been kicked out of that country entirely. New York Daily News:
While the notion of Belichick on your front lawn would frighten anyone, Canadian customers complained the tasteless decoration trivializes voyeurs.(Canadians are particularly sensitive to this issue, since one of the country’s most infamous serial killers, Paul Bernardo, was also a Peeping Tom.)
“I find this in very bad taste for all the attacks done on women and children. Not just of recent, but for many years,” commented one shopper on the Home Depot site.
Creeper has been pulled from shelves at all Canadian Home Depots, but is still available in the U.S. One can also pick up Tapping Peeper, which "makes spooky movements", including tapping the glass. That's $45.
