As the world was busy tricking and treating on Halloween, a man's decision to dress up as an instant messaging app ended up spooking countless office workers on the Internet.

Alex Engelberg, a computer engineer by profession, took things in his own hands and devised a Halloween costume - made out of Slack - a chat hub that has become synonymous with work in the recent times.

Titling his costume "1 new message," Engelberg shared a video in which he mimicked the chat notification sound - the one you probably receive from your boss five minutes before your shift ends.

Dressed in a diagonal Slack logo t-shirt, Engelberg is seen holding claves as he imitates the new message sound to perfection. Uploaded on October 31, the 4-second video has been viewed over a million times on Twitter.
