Viral Video Chart: Pumpkin Cat, Top Gun Babies And iPad Zombie

02/11/2011 14:48 | Updated 02 January 2012

Pumpkins, clever costumes and spooky pranks have had trick-or-treaters stuck to their screens this week.

A cat with whiskers like Colonel Mustard's wore a foppish pumpkin beret whilst chomping the harvest vegetable, albeit with chicken mixed in. Whoever knew felines were so conscious of eating seasonal produce?

A Halloween brainwave hit one apple-fan with his 'see through' outfit, using two iPads to make it look as if he'd been gored through the centre. Inspired, if devilishly expensive.

Revellers were saying "Damn that kid is good!" to two twins dressed as Top Gun characters. Snug inside a miniature plane, converted from a pushchair, they were blissfully unaware of their internet popularity. A goatee and aviators on a baby are comedy genius.

Elsewhere an African kid with a talent for beatbox, an almost-human army robot and occupy hitting back at newspapers stole attention. Watch out for the seriously scary exploding pumpkin.
