[Starts with a clip of full moon under the clouds] [Cheers and applause] [Cut to a couple walking in the graveyard]

Heidi: Baby, this is too creepy. Let’s just go back to the party.

Tyler: Come on, it’s Halloween. We’ve got to hook up in a grave yard.

Heidi: Do we though?

[A big lightning strikes and dead people walk out of their graves dancing]

Tyler? What’s happening?

Tyler: I don’t know.

[Music starts playing]

The deads: On Halloween, your breath is taken

For tonight, the dead awaken

Listen well our living friends

and hear how we all met our ends

[Cut to Tyler and Heidi]

Heidi: Oh, my god, Tyler, they’re going to sing about how they died.

Tyler: I know, I’m scared!

[Cut to a skeleton playing a piano] [Cut to Kenan]

Kenan: I was a captain at my ship’s wheel

A heart of gold and nerves of Steel

I fell overboard one night so dark

and I swam just fine, but so did the shark

[Cut to Aidy Bryant]

Aidy: I was a debutante, the bell of the ball

Men would chase me for spring to fall

I never met a flame that I couldn’t handle

Until my gown met a candle

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: We can skip me. Happy Halloween!

[Cut to Tyler and Heidi]

Heidi: Is that all he’s going to do?

[Cut to Mikey Day and Chance]

Mikey: Yeah, I was wondering the same. That was it?

Chance: Yes, skip me.

Mikey: Okay, I’ll go, then. Nobody has ever skipped before. I’m sorry,

[Cut to Mikey Day]

I was a miner, digging for gold

Then one day, I hit the mother lode

I grabbed a cigar, gave it a light

turned out my stogie was dynamite

[Chance walks in]

Chance: Wow. Everyone did great. I think we’re done here, right?

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Kenan:  No. Uh-huh. It’s a diddy of the damned. All four of us have a tale to tell about deaths before we can go back to our graves. That’s how it works. So come on.

[Cut to Mikey Day and Chance]

Chance: Well, here’s my thing, my death was a real “You had to be there” kind of situation. It needs a lot of context, so I don’t want to waste everybody’s time.

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Kenan: Sing now!

[Cut to Mikey Day and Chance]

Chance: Oh, my god. Fine. I’ll go. Ready?

One dark night with the moon so red

what killed me happened and now I’m dead

Happy Halloween!

[Cut to Tyler and Heidi]

Heidi: Wait, but like, how did you die?

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: How? A ghost never tells.

[Cut to Tyler and Heidi]

Heidi: They do, though. That’s what this whole song is about.

Tyler: Is he allowed to be vague like that?

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Kenan: He is not!

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: All right. It’s going to sound way worse that it actually is. You guys know what a 9-volt battery is, right? It’s important for the song.

At 12 years old, I sat on a 9-volt

It gave me heinie a quick little jolt

I liked how it felt, so I did it a lot

So I built up a tolerance to a lower watt

Then realized there’s no higher volt

than the one comes from a lightning bolt

So one stormy night I went on a roof

and put a metal pole in my ass

Yo, why y’all— I can’t do this right now. Y’all are looking at me like I’m some sort of freak or something.

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Aidy: No one is judging you.

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: Yes, you are. Look at that owl.

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Aidy: Forget about the owl and just finish the song.

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: Okay, god. All right, everybody remember where we left off?

[Cut to Mikey]

Mikey: Yes. You’re on the roof with a pole in your ass. I’ve done the same thing myself.

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: Really?

[Cut to Mikey]

Mikey: No, man! It’s weird at hell! Just go!

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: Whatever.

Like Benjamin Franklin with his key and kite

That lightning hit my pole that night

I squealed with delight but I quietly stopped

when my insides fried and my colon popped

and my ass burnt off and my thing caught on fire

and my face caught on fire and I wet in my pants

Happy Halloween!

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Kenan: What the hell is wrong with you, man?

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: Nothing. I was a kid, man. Kids do weird stuff.

[Cut to Kenan and Aidy]

Aidy: You died in your 20s.

[Cut to Chance]

Chance: Whatever! Let’s just finish the song.

[All the deads come together to sing]

The deads: Listen to the dead and the voices of the past

And live every day like it’s your last

Happy Halloween.
