SAN DIEGO, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- A California man who dressed as a 12-foot-long CVS receipt for Halloween visited one of the stores to confirm the bar code on his costume actually functioned.

Jeremy Schneider posted a video to YouTube showing off his 12-foot-long receipt costume, which he said was created by taking a real CVS receipt from the purchase of a single pack of Altoids.

"I then scanned it into Photoshop, cut it up into 42 individual squares which I printed on 8.5x11 paper, then cut and taped together with packing tape. Then I glued the whole thing onto poster board and taped four yard sticks on the back to keep it erect. It took about four hours," Schneider wrote.

The video shows Schneider drawing a lot of attention from amused customers and employees at the CVS store in San Diego.

The moment of truth comes when he has a checkout clerk scan the CVS rewards bar code on the giant receipt -- and he does indeed get his $1 rebate. The clerk and a pair of coworkers watching the scene burst into amused laughter when the bar code scans easily.

Schneider said his costume was inspired by another Redditor's costume posted online last year.
