How to avoid the Hoseheads on Halloween, Part 1: Don’t try and be cute with a hosehead
Posted October 01, 2019 09:13:17As Halloween comes to an end, it’s time to consider the Hosingheads, the fad that originated in the early 1980s, that was first caught on video in 1994 and spread quickly online.
While the popularity of the Hosedhead has since dwindled to almost nothing, its been a fun tradition to watch, thanks to its appeal to both boys and girls alike.
Hoseheads, also known as “Hose-heads,” are typically the result of a child’s desire to hide his or her face from the world.
They were first spotted in 1995 in the UK and quickly spread throughout Europe and beyond.
The Hosehead craze spawned a new genre of videos, where children would take turns playing with their Hose Heads to entertain friends and family, and the videos became a viral sensation.
The videos are often accompanied by the tagline “You don’t have to look like a freak, you just need to hide.”
The Hose-head cravenness spread to other countries, including the US, where they have been seen in a variety of ways since the early 1990s.
In fact, they’ve become such a staple in the Halloween festivities that the hashtag #HoseHead has been used by celebrities like David Beckham, Miley Cyrus, and Tom Hanks.
Hosesheads were popularized by a viral YouTube video called “Hoses-Heads,” in which a boy dressed up as a man with a hose head and a hose in a grocery store.
The video became so popular that the Househead phenomenon exploded in popularity in the US and became so prevalent in Europe, where the craze began.
