Russell Westbrook’s Halloween costume this year is EVERYTHING. The NBA player showed off his epic look on Instagram on Oct. 21 and We. Were. Amazed. Why? Russell took on the role of ‘Joe Dirt’ and it is completely perfect! See his costume (complete with mullet) here!
Russell Westbrook, 27, is pretty amazing at coming up with ingenious Halloween costumes, proving that when he dressed up as his teammate Steven Adams, 23, last year. Now THAT was good. But THIS is better. Russ chose to take on the role of Joe Dirt, from the hilarious 2001 comedy Joe Dirt of course. Because, duh, what else would you want to go as? His costume is perfect, from the the bushy brown mullet on his head, down to the tacky sleeve-cut, red flannel shirt. So, so good.

Russell wore the look out to what we can only assume was an amazing costume party that night, and rocked out to Young M.A.’s “OOOUUU” on the dance floor. The way he jams like he doesn’t have a care in the world is so Joe. Russ is totally winning Halloween 2016, and we still have a week to go before the big night! We really love how Russell didn’t mind going as someone so ridiculous for Halloween, when you could choose to be something super sexy or cool. Although, Joe is kind of amazing in his own weird, weird way.
We already can’t wait to see what Russell busts out for his costume next year, and are totally self conscious about what we’re gonna wear next week because of how amazing Russ’ Joe Dirt look is! We wonder if he is going to go out as something else on Oct. 31 (when he trick or treats, of course), or if he has another hilarious look waiting in his back pocket. Obviously, Russ likes to go for the funny costumes, so we wouldn’t doubt it!
HollywoodLifers, do you love Russell’s costume? Would you dress up as Joe Dirt? Or is it just way to embarrassing a look for you? Let us know below!
