If you saw a man riding his bike around the neighborhood, dressed as Michael Myers from "Halloween," towing a skeleton baby in the back, would you call the police? If it weren’t actually Oct. 31, I would.
Unfortunately, if you live in Evan Zimmerman’s town of Decatur, Ind., the police would disregard your call. You see, police are familiar with Zimmerman's tendency to emulate his favorite horror character and generally creeping people out around town. Zimmerman also likes to stand in his neighbor’s windows brandishing a fake knife. HELL to the no.
In this now viral video, Zimmerman’s wife Sabrina caught him tooling around town on a bike in mid-October and promptly gave him a verbal dressing down from her car.
“What the hell are you doing? Are we these people now?" she asks. "Get home or I’m going to have you committed," she scolds, while one of their three children giggles in the background.
If I were her, I’d be pissed, too.
Here Zimmerman is trying to spook people while his son is testing for his yellow belt in karate. "Look out the window!" one of the other moms says.
Thanks, Dad. Not distracting AT ALL.
He’s become something as a local celebrity and even has his own Facebook page where he makes appearances. As you can see, local radio station 98.9 The Bear welcomed him to their studios to make their employees heart rate (and tendency for foul language) go up:
If you notice from the videos, Zimmerman stares straight ahead, even when his wife, who is frankly scarier, yells at him.
"Our neighbors are going to think you’re weird, Evan!" She barks at him to get in the house and stop. "I can’t!" she says. How could you possibly?
In his spare time, Zimmerman is actually rather handsome and serves in the U.S. Air Force. He’s been doing the Michael Myers bit since 2012. He never breaks character, even when one man threatened to shoot him (yikes on bikes). He will scare children but will not frighten the elderly. What a champ.
If you ask me, Zimmerman's wife needs to prank him back in a major way. I'm sure the whole town is willing to help her.
