If it’s candy you’re after this Halloween, go as Gary Bettman and take it all (VIDEO)

Halloween goes Wednesday night, and it seems a foregone conclusion that several children will go as their favorite hockey players. It's an easy enough costume, really: just don that player's jersey and go outside. (I guess, if you're a stickler for realism, you could order a Bleacher Creature face mask from the NHL store).

But if all you're after is a pillow case that runneth over with candy, don't bother going as a player. Go as the commissioner himself, like this kid. Who would dare question you if you tried to take too much?

Uncanny impression here, especially the height. Nailed it. It's enough to make me wonder if maybe the mask has taken over, like in classic Goosebumps novel The Haunted Mask. Run home, kid! It's a real face! It can only be removed with a symbol of love!

Granted, the real Gary Bettman isn't as direct. And he blinks a whole lot more.
