Halloween is almost upon us and as such pumpkins are appearing on front doorsteps and in windows of every street.
Some are left intact, others are turned into Jack O’Lanterns, emptied out and carved with spooky faces, a candle flickering inside.
Carving a pumpkin can be great fun for the whole family, but for some it’s a bit of a faff.
Kiel James Patrick, who posts under @kjp on the video-sharing platform has gone viral after showing how he used a pressure washer to add a face to his pumpkin.

In the clip he can be seen using the pressure washer to draw two triangle-shaped eyes, a nose and a spiky-toothed mouth.
Some water pours out of the mouth as he finishes up, but as he pans around the pumpkin, viewers can see that the back is still intact.
He adds: “Wow! That was really easy and fun!”
The video was captioned: “Carve a Jaco in 30 seconds. Back still in tact.”
Many people took the time to comment, with one writing: “I feel pressured to try this now.”
Another said: “You can’t tell me that this doesn’t look better than traditional carving.”
A third posted: “Was expecting this to go south quick, but after that second triangle I knew it was going to be a work of art.”
“The way this turned out actually looks really cool,” added someone else.
While a different user joked: “Dads will do anything to use their pressure washer.”
