LG coins the slogan “So Real, It’s Scary” for this commercial, which coincides nicely with Halloween. This campaign is both hilarious and horrible (in the best way). LG installed a grid of LCD monitors in the floor of an elevator, creating an illusion that riders were about to plummet to their deaths.
In this campaign, Skittles gives arachnophobes even more ammunition for their fears. Skittles tapped into the Halloween spirit with this commercial featuring a life-sized talking spider. Did we mention this spider is a comedian too? There’s nothing people won’t do for a taste of the rainbow in this ad.
For Halloween in 2013, Rice Krispies Squares changed the name of their classic Squares to “Rice Krispies Scare” and create buzz about the marshmallow snack for trick-or-treaters. Kellogg promoted the name change by creating a hidden camera scare with a haunted vending machine. Watch the video to see innocent by-passers’ terrified reactions.
A Butterfinger characterized as a jack-o'-lantern gives homeowners fair warning this Halloween: hand out Butterfingers this Halloween OR have your house covered in toilet paper by little monsters. The classic question “trick or treat?” takes on a whole new meaning in this ad!
Did you see another Halloween campaign that was funny like Skittles or scary like Sprint? Let us know!
