This dad's Dementor drone is downright dastardly

A crafty man in Wisconsin attached a fake Halloween skeleton to his new drone and for those who are a safe distance away – its hilarious and awesome.

A crafty man in Wisconsin attached a fake Halloween skeleton to his drone, and for those who are a safe distance away – its hilarious and awesome.

Michael Irvine's daughters are scared of Dementors, those black-cloaked flying creatures from the Harry Potter books. So with that in mind, the 50-year-old Peshtigo, Wisconsin, man decided to recreate them using his drone, a Halloween decoration, and some clear fishing line, according to Buzzfeed.

Irvine's nephew, Zac Crueger, posted photos of the creation on Twitter Sunday, and it's since gotten 160,000 retweets and 290,000 likes.

The internet exploded with praise for Crueger's uncle, naturally.

Yes, yes he is.
