Blame it on the boo-gie! Dancing toddler mimics a spooky inflatable Halloween decoration
- Orin, two, imitates a ‘dancing’ blow-up Jack Skellington in Perry Hall, Maryland
- The little boy copies its flailing movements in sync with the Halloween toy
- His mother took the video for his grandparents and said her son is a ‘character’
This is the hilarious moment a toddler perfectly imitated the spooky movements of a ‘dancing’ inflatable Halloween decoration.
Two-year-old Orin was walking down his street in Perry Hall, Maryland, with his mother Lindsay Ball when they came across a blow-up Jack Skellington – a character from the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The decoration was ‘dancing’ in the wind in the next-door neighbor’s yard, and Orin could not resist joining in.

Footage shows the boy copying the silly, sharp dance moves, bending down and leaning backwards in sync with the toy.
His mother started filming him because she thought the boy’s grandparents would ‘get a kick out of it’ and is heard laughing in the background.
She said her young son is a ‘character’ and ‘a complete clown’ so wasn’t surprised when he started dancing along with Jack Skellington.
‘Our older son is busy with virtual school, so I find myself desperate for ways to keep the little one busy and out of his way,’ she said.
They decided to go for a short walk around their neighborhood and found a surprise next door.

‘Our next-door neighbors had just put the Jack Skellington up in their yard, and our son hadn’t noticed it until our walk,’ said the boy’s mum.
‘He’s always been a character and a complete clown, so him imitating Jack wasn’t really a surprise or unusual.
‘I decided to pull out my phone and record it, because I thought his grandparents would get a kick out of it!
‘As a family, we love to laugh, and we’re so happy that our son’s dance moves have brought a smile to so many people’s faces!’
The video was filmed on October 9 and was posted online recently.
