Earlier today, Thomas Rhett along with some of his friends filmed their own take on the “Hocus Pocus” legendary graveyard scene. Also featured in the video were friends Tyler Page and Macy Page, and the scene was filmed by Grayson Gregory. The 1993 film is a cult classic around Halloween, typically garnering millions of streams in the month of October.

While the acting in the movie itself is decent at best, Thomas Rhett’s rendition does the scene justice. The interaction between Max Dennison and the two bullies is inherently cringe, but Rhett and his two friends somehow make it even harder to sit through.

They imitate the scene line for line, but had to cut the scene short “because the acting fell apart as the night went on”. The highlight of the scene is certainly Thomas Rhett delivering the knockout line “you could learn to breathe through your nose”. Watch the video here.

Thomas Rhett started his career as a songwriter in Nashville. He has since found success as a country musician with a quickly growing fan base. In the early stages of his career, he penned songs for Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and Brice Lee. He grew within the Nashville scene until gaining national recognition with his debut album, It Goes Like This.

He released his latest single titled “Broke“with cover artist Teddy Swims on October 23. This was the third single he has released this year. If the coronavirus gets under control, Thomas Rhett will begin his tour on June 3 of next year in Gilford New Hampshire. Based on this Hocus {Focus remake, it is safe to say that Thomas Rhett is a better musician than actor.
