Halloween II – Michael Myers kills annoying banner ads

6a00d8341c51c053ef0120a508d7de970b-450wiWith the upcoming release of the new Rob Zombie film, Halloween II, the sequel to his vision of John Carpenter’s 1978 film, Halloween, Dimension Films hired a digital creative agency to help promote the new movie.

The result was a series of fake banner ads promoting tax savings, sexy singles, or car insurance. We’ve all seen these annoying ads pop-up in our browser before. So it’s about time somebody did something about it. Well, enter Michael Myers. The slasher film star pops into the ads and does what he does best, revealing that what you thought was an ad for the new Mockbook Pro is actually an ad for the new Halloween II movie.

Watch the ads below. You may need to refresh your browser.

I think these ads are great, poking fun at the awful “singles in your area” ads that are all over the internet. Thank you Michael Myers for freeing us of these annoying banner ads.

What do you think about the campaign?

    I really enjoy these. My initial thought is that these would diffenately cut through the clutter but I wonder if I would have noticed them if I stumbled across it while browsing the web. These types of banners have somewhat become static on the internet so I hope that these spoofs can cut threw and get visitors to the movie’s site.

    Do you know where these banner ads were placed?

    These are awesome. Nice usage of spamming the internet.

    I also haven’t seen any of these on websites, where are they?
