For the most part, Halloween is simply an exercise in dressing up like Drake and calling it a year, but there is still a very small degree to which the holiday is supposed to be about scaring you, what with all the fake blood and weapons and such. And it appears that someone close to Real Friends is taking the whole scaring—and, well, in this case murdering—aspect of Halloween to heart, in the video for their song “Me First,” from the new album Composure. Just a reminder for all you kids out there: It’s all fun and games until your viewing of Halloween becomes a reenactment of Scream.
