The Weeknd went all out for Halloween this year, dressing up as Eddie Murphy's Sherman Klump from 1996's classic comedy The Nutty Professor.

In a series of Instagram posts on Saturday (Oct. 31), the 30-year-old R&B crooner shared photos and videos of himself in the spot-on costume, right down to the overweight body suit, heavy make-up and gray blazer with bowtie and suspenders.

The Weeknd even nailed some of Klump's jovial mannerisms, which can be seen in the videos, where he puffs on a cigar at what appears to be a Halloween party. In another clip, the singer shows off his nutty dance moves while his new After Hours song "Too Late" plays in the background.

Last year, The Weeknd dressed up as another classic cinematic character, reimagining himself as Jack Nicholson's Joker from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film.
