Sure to be this Halloween’s must-have lawn decoration, this 13-foot-tall animated Jack Skellington yard ornament from The Home Depot is the perfect display for letting trick-or-treaters know you’re either handing out full-size candy bars or ready to get your home toilet papered.
Jack comes with two interchangeable heads (one friendly and one scary) and has motion sensors that activate his head and mouth movement, causing him to sing one of three different parts of ‘Jack’s Lament’ from The Nightmare Before Christmas. The rear of his bowtie is also decked out with color-changing LEDs to illuminate his face as he sings his song to bewildered trick-or-treaters.
There’s a house not too far from where I live that keeps one of those giant 12-foot Home Depot skeletons standing in their yard all year long, and dress it up and decorate it according to whatever holiday is coming up next. That takes a special kind of person. Maybe not the kind you want living right next door, but I don’t, so I have no complaints and enjoy the spectacle every time I drive by.
