Every year around late August and early September, people start to get the Halloween itch. Then October 1st rolls around and they're in full Halloween mode and taking to social media to express how excited they are for the holiday. One of the most recognizable and shared memes about fall excitement is Matt Geiler, better known as the Dancing Pumpkin Man. Geiler became an internet sensation when he first appeared in his full black suit and pumpkin mask, dancing to the Ghostbusters theme. The dance premiered during a Halloween night news broadcast on KVXO, a local station in Omaha, Nebraska. The video was then uploaded on the channel's YouTube page and has since had more than 7,000,000 views.
