[VIDEO] The SSMB Sings “A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup”, and Other Spooky Treats!

Ora ora ora! …rats!

Welp, it’s that spooky time of year again, when kids dress up as monsters and go door to door for free candy, when adults marathon horror movies, when spooky, scary skeletons send shivers down your spine… or when Sonic fans dust off their consoles and ain’t gonna let it get to them; they’re just gonna creep down in Pumpkin Hill in order to find their lost piece!

And that is exactly what we’re sharing with you today, for the fine folks at the Sonic Stadium Message Board have come together this holiday to sing a fabled Halloween carol: A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup, by Tomoya Ohtani and Hunnid-P!

I shed a tear… That was utterly magnificent. Great job, SSMB, great job. I tip my hat to you all for participating!
