Looking for a Halloween costume that’s funny, foodie and decidedly not sexy? A costume that will make you the life of the party or just get you a $3 burrito at Chipotle? Snapchat (yup) has a get-up that was made for dancing, and that’s just what it’s gonna’ do.

Say hello to the breakdancing hot dog (IRL). The costume comes complete with hand slits, allowing you to touch your phone and live your best selfie life. A convenient head slit will help you drink your beer (and breathe). It comes in two pieces, with hot dog pants and a hot dog top. You can buy the costume on Amazon, where it has been released to rave reviews.

“I wore this to work for the first time today, and I've already been promoted twice,” wrote a reviewer named Family. “Soon I'll be the top dog around here.”

If you have no idea why Snapchat is selling a dancing hot dog costume, don’t worry, that’s why we out here reportin’ on that news.

Earlier this year, Snapchat released new in-app photo filters that interact in real time with the image on the camera screen. One of these augmented reality filters featured a very amusing dancing hot dog. The filter quickly produced a plethora of memes, ranging from the side-splitting to the borderline inappropriate, in which the dancing hot dog finds itself in strange places and gets compared to a real hot dog.

So if you want to be a lean meme dancing machine this Halloween, you know where to get your costume. Just maybe avoid busting a move on your pets.
