Halloween is just around the corner, which means it is time to break out the decorations! Home Depot has a reputation for delivering some of the spookiest and most exciting Halloween decorations each year, and 2023 is no exception. The store’s 12-foot skeleton was a smash hit, but it pales in comparison to the demand for Home Depot’s latest Halloween decoration: Dean the Deathologist.

Dean the Deathologist Is 6 Feet of Ghoulish Greatness

Halloween enthusiasts will likely want to run, not walk, to Home Depot to pick up their very own Dean the Deathologist. Not familiar with deathology? Don’t worry, Dean has got you covered. Dean the Deathologist is a six-foot tall animated skeleton bartender for the dead, serving up creepy cocktails to all of the ghosts and ghouls. He speaks six sinister phrases that truly set the tone for this spooky season — and you won’t believe how real he looks!

For $149, you can bring home your very own Dean the Deathologist. Designed for indoor use, the skeleton bartender has red LED eyes that give off a haunted glow, and his motions and sounds are sensor-activated, adding an extra creepy layer to this already spook-tastic decoration. All you need to get Dean up and running is access to an outlet — just plug him in and he’s ready to start mixing spirits for the spirits. In a matter of minutes, he’ll be ready to start scaring all of your family and friends as they walk through your front door.

The undead animated bartender is in such high demand that he’s been practically flying off Home Depot’s shelves, and the store can hardly keep him in stock. Dean the Deathologist is available for shipping in certain zip codes, and he may be available at your local Home Depot — but get there fast because he’s sure to sell out. It’s not surprising that so many people can’t wait to bask in all of Dean’s ghoulish greatness.
