All-Business Adult In Halloween Shop Beelines It Straight For Pinhead Mask

BROOKLINE, MA—Without so much as glancing at the seasonal store’s wide selection of other Halloween-themed merchandise, all-business 34-year-old Brian Aubin reportedly strode right past several aisles of costumes and accessories Friday and beelined it straight for the Pinhead masks. “That guy wasn’t fucking around—he was there for one reason and one reason only, and that was to get himself a Pinhead mask,” said fellow customer Emily Nassif, adding that when an employee asked the grown man if he needed help finding anything else, the straight-faced Aubin simply and purposefully pointed to the latex mask made famous by the Hellraiser movies and said “Just this.” “I’m not sure he even noticed all the Scream and Freddy Krueger masks or the big barrel of plastic scythes next to him, not that he would have cared if he did. This guy knew he wanted to look like Pinhead, and he made it happen.” Sources later reported that once the single-minded, no-nonsense shopper had completed his purchase, he exited the store so quickly that he didn’t even trigger the motion-activated cackling skeleton.
