Steve Martin has shared a look at his tongue-in-cheek Mike Pence Halloween costume.
The actor took to Twitter to post a photo of himself seemingly not dressed up at all, albeit with a fly on his head — nodding to a recent incident at the vice presidential debate.
Last Wednesday (October 7) a fly landed on Mike Pence’s head during his debate with Kamala Harris, who is Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s running mate.
Martin did not directly allude to the incident, simply sharing the photo of himself with the caption: “My Halloween costume arrived!”
Another Twitter account called “Pence’s Fly”, parodying last week’s events, responded to Martin’s tweet saying “What a second, it’s ME!”

One user on Twitter replied “he really posted a picture of mike pence and thought we wouldn’t notice”, while another added: “It’s a bit over the top, but I like it.”
