It’s the first weekend of October, which means Halloween is just around the corner. This means Halloween commercials will be at full force trying to scare up some viewers and hopefully translate some sales. That’s why I’ll be dedicating my Saturday commercial slots for my favourite Halloween themed commercials!
There’s always been a fan base for zombie themed entertainment, and lately it’s only increased I feel with The Walking Dead , which by the way is one of my favourite TV Shows on television right now. Last year, Cadbury changed their classic Creme Eggs, into Screme eggs and launched a Halloween campaign with a number of commercials featuring “normal” Creme Eggs and “zombie” Screme Eggs. Here’s one of them:
I feel they got this commercial just right. It has a “cuteness” factor by having chocolate running around the scream that isn’t too scary for children, but it directly targets zombie enthusiasts by our protagonist Creme Egg’s unfortunate demise. A perfect commercial for Halloween.
