An 80s kid put up Dirty Dancing inspired Halloween decorations for fun – “They had the time of their lives”
Terrifying Halloween decorations are great and all, decor dedicated to the classic ’80s movie Dirty Dancing? Now that’s something we can get behind.
“Nobody put’s baby in the ground”
That’s what one of the tombstones reads at a local resident’s house in Park Ridge, Illinois, after he put up Dirty Dancing-inspired Halloween decorations.
We had the time of our lives looking at these and we owe it all to Joseph Lee.
“I’m an ’80s kid… so I was like, ‘What are some of the [’80s movies] that everybody’s seen?'” Lee told Good Morning America.
Just last week, Lee posted a photo of his Halloween creation on social media. The image shows two skeletons, in full costume, replicating Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze’s characters and recreating the film’s most memorable dance move.

And behind the dancing skeletons, Lee created a spooky scene to resemble the Kellerman resort’s end-of-summer talent show complete with curtains, string lights and a disco ball.
“I love creating something that I’ve never seen before,” Lee said.
Not to be forgotten, two gravestones poke out from behind the boney couple, sporting inscriptions that read “Had the time of my life” and “Nobody puts baby in the ground.”
Lee said he came up with the idea in August and took three days off in September to set up the scene.
Decorating his yard with shockingly athletic skeletons has become a tradition for Lee and his wife.
Even though he had the time of his life setting this up, he offers advice to the brave souls who might want to try their hand at posing skeletons in their yards for Halloween.
“[The skeletons] do not move the way you want them to move,” Lee joked.
Although his current plans for next year’s Halloween skeleton set-up are a secret, he is already thinking big to top this year’s design.
We’re hoping for a Titanic recreation on the front of a boat, or maybe E.T.’s classic bike scene.
Whatever it ends up being, we’re sure it will be spooktacular!
