Jul 25 2022, 2:20 pm

A mascot is doing its job when it symbolizes an event or organization — even when it’s downright terrifying.

Entering its 5th edition in September, the Halifax Oyster Festival is an all-you-can-sample raw bar over the course of three tasting days in the fall, highlighting the best in Nova Scotian and Maritime oyster farming.

It also has a mascot that looks right out of a Stranger Things season.

Twitter user @alangdon17 shared a 2019 picture of the mascot and it’s terrifying as shell. Since being shared on Sunday morning, the tweet has garnered over 150,000 likes and almost 3,000 replies.

Aw shucks, here are some of the best reactions to the oyster mascot:
