5 Great Halloween Commercials

It should come as no surprise that October is my favorite month. It’s the start of basketball season, of which I am a huge fan, but it’s also the month of Halloween and the one time of year that horror truly reigns supreme. As a kid growing up I always felt like everyone went all out for Halloween – stores, TV shows, every house on the block and so on. What really struck a chord with me were the TV commercials. It seemed like virtually every product got in the spirit and unleashed some Halloween-themed commercial.

Thanks to the likes of YouTube, I’m able to re-visit a lot of these commercials quite easily. In doing so I decided to make a list of 5 Great Halloween Commercials. These are in no particular order, and I’m not even saying they’re the 5 best, but they are 5 Halloween commercials that I really, really love.

    That Snickers one was creepy as hell, If I saw that in a shop I think i’d need a change of pants. On a side note I completely agree about Toys R Us being the best place as a kid.

      Yeah, I was kinda surprised that one made it past the censors because there HAS to be some little kids that saw that and had nightmares for a few days.

        I’m getting close to my thirties and it almost gave ME nightmares. Funny, and traumatizing!

          And am I the only one that saw this commercial the first time and immediately thought ‘That looks like Leatherface’s mask?’ Maybe that’s what troubles me about it most. If they added more comedy to it instead of further upping the creep factor of how the person reacted when rant into the aisle, it may not have been quite as alarming to me I guess.

            I guess what saved it was actually showing the two kids at the end. If it had been left only implied that it was children dressing up as the old lady it may not have made it. And did anyone see it play during daylight hours? I only ever seemed to catch that commercial at night.

      Yeah, that mask, the way it moves with that voice, ugh, no thank you!

    I so remember the Frankenstein commercial, probably one of the best. I think you miss a few like the MDonalds Halloween commercials
