Can you imagine going through airport security and seeing this frightening thing ahead of you, going through the X-ray in front of your bin? The sight of this decaying “corpse” might be enough to make some people queasy, but relax … it’s just a prop!
When this “dead passenger” passed through the X-ray machine one horrifying day at the Atlanta International Airport, one of the TSA officers made sure to snap a few pictures of the ghastly guest.
Although it was a scary sight to behold, it turned out that a movie production crew was just transporting a prop for the 2003 horror flick, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”
The TSA posted the photos on their Instagram along with a caption, which read: “Talk about deadheading… This crusty ol’ chap is actually a prop from the #TexasChainsawMassacre movie.”
“He was brought through a checkpoint at the Atlanta (#ATL) International Airport, where as you can see, he was screened and sent on his jolly way.”
Now all we need to know is if “he” has his own seat on the airplane too!
While many Instagram users responded with “OMG” or “hahahah…,” others were less enthused by the prospect of sitting next to the dead man. “Not in the seat next to me..” said one netizen. “Thank you Check that thing.”
Another person inquired: “Did he get his own seat? It’s not like he could go in overhead storage…. ;)”
What do you think of this terrifying traveler? Frightful, or funny?
