Is Bradley Cooper’s Jogging Suit From Silver Linings Playbook Going To Be The Hipster Halloween Costume Of 2013?

So, I finally watched Silver Linings Playbook this week. I know, it’s very amazing of me. Such incredible news, for sure. But OK, hey, you were right, America, that movie is great! I enjoyed it very much. (Although they do say “silver linings” in that movie about 100 times. Maybe they could have just said it 80 times? Or they could have called the movie something different. There’s got to be some middle-ground between calling the movie Silver Linings and saying “silver linings.” Small complaint but VERY valid.) Anyway, I was watching the movie with a friend of mine, and during one of the many jogging scenes, he said “that would be a good Halloween costume,” and I said, “I was JUST thinking that.” It’s got everything you need for a great costume: simplicity, recognizability, easy to dance in, no hard-plastic mouthhole to drink through, etc. I don’t think anyone is arguing that it doesn’t got everything you need for a great costume. Then last night, I was at dinner with some more friends (it’s like, crazy how many friends I have probably?) and we were not talking about this movie because everyone else stopped wanting to talk about it 10 years ago, so I don’t know if we were talking about exercising or what, but somehow the spectre of this outfit was in the ether because my friend’s girlfriend turned to him and said “Oh, like your Halloween costume!” You guys, you might think that it’s too early in the year to talk about this but IT’S REALLY HAPPENING and you need to decide whether you are going to be the one hundredth Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook at the party, or something else entirely. The time to decide is running out. (There is still so much time to decide, but technically the time for everything is running out. That’s just a FACT.) I’m not trying to push you either way, I am just saying take another look at the powder blue suit hanging in your closet with the fake Borat mustache poking out of the pocket before you decide. Anyway, let the herstory books reflect that I’m calling it now. January 19th or whatever day it even is. 2010! IS THERE A NOTARY PUBLIC IN THE BLOG?!
