Snickers Presents: Bite Size Horror

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f2b5J7_1mo

Quinn and Mikael follow up this year’s Halloween with a visceral ad from Snickers called “Bite Size Horror.” Twist: there’s no Snickers in this ad. Second twist: maybe this ad is actually great. We learn a lot about how the ad boys feel about horror films, candy, and the importance of showing your product in your ad.

31 – Delicatessen (1991)

This week Sophie & Mitch watched the cult French film Delicatessen (1991).

Ho-boy what a movie: an apartment building full of weirdos atop a butcher shop after some sort of apocalypse. It’s super odd, super French, and super fun. If you need more strangeness this Halloween, this is the movie for you.

Help Tom Brady Bring Good Back This Halloween

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JrmTPlVb-E

Join the ad boys once again as they deconstruct and reconstruct the Unreal Candy ad “Help Tom Brady Bring Good Back to Halloween.” Yes, the ad is as dumb as it sounds. Get ready for spooky skeleton keys, nonsensical sci-fi pleas, and just an incredibly low bar.

29 – Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978)

It’s October, so we’re doing spooky food movies, starting with the classic Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978).

Sophie & Mitch talk all about the highs and lows of this movie, the baffling logic of how these tomatoes function, as well as level of zaniness this film reaches at points. So travel with us as we try to explain what, why, and how these killer tomatoes attack.
