Are You Being Sold With Scare Tactics? Yes!

30 Oct

So, lots of Halloween ads to choose from this week. How about a smorgasbord? Here we go.

First up: Party City. Nice spot using the iconic Thriller as a theme. A little expected, but fun anyway. The behind the scenes stuff is pretty cool. The spot was created by Zimmerman Advertising. In addition, they created a teaser website as well as a Facebook application.


Next, we have riding the recent vampire craze straight to monotony. Yeah, your vampire boyfriend is smoking hot (literally), but dude? This relationship has you stuck in a dark room, severely anemic, hungry, and incredibly indecisive. Not worth it.

Finally, we have pretty twisted print campaign from Snickers. Being on both sides of a trick-or-treat scenario at the same time freaks me out. And apparently, the first lady was the only quadruplet who survived to adulthood.

So, Halloween is tomorrow. What are you wearing? Me? I’m going as a aspiring copywriter with a retail, day job. Original, right?
