These twins had guests at a London hotel spooked with their recreation of a famous scene from The Shining
Their dad, Martin Hughes, captured the creepy shots on a family holiday and posted them on Twitter. What guest wouldn’t run and hide if they saw these two at the end of a dimly-lit hallway?
Poppy and Isabella, both 4, don’t know who the Shining twins are, but they do a spot-on impression
Twitter users reacted about the same way we assume the twins’ fellow hotel guests did
Hughes said that he’s even “jokingly taught them ‘come and play with us’,” another reference to the iconic film
In The Shining, a pair of twin ghosts haunt the hallways of a hotel and torment a young boy, something Poppy and Isabella might pull off very well with a little bit of practice.
All jokes aside, these girls are pretty adorable, and not creepy at all when they’re out of character
Hughes wrote on Twitter that joking with his girls “makes the grief of having twins worthwhile”
The girls are clearly experts at playing other roles too, and make a perfect team
Some people reportedly had mixed reactions to the girls’ uncanny portrayal of twin ghosts…
… But an overwhelming majority of commentators definitely got the joke
One user even shared his real-life Shining house… Yikes!
Three cheers for a ‘mint’ prank by two cuties, who are definitely going to love Halloween when they get older
