3 brands with ‘Killer’ Halloween ad campaigns

Halloween is a great way for brands to communicate their message and activations due to its mass appeal, and we know that video is an effective way to communicate this.

To get you in the spooky spirit we’ve identified 3 brands with ‘killer’ advertising campaigns and to get you inspired!

We kick things off by taking a look at this eery ad by Booking.com named ‘Haunted Hotel’. This piece of creative, produced by Wieden + Kennedy follows a woman who is woken by a mysterious noise until the ‘known thing’ enters her room.


Next up is Burger Kings well thought out smear ad which trolls their biggest competitor McDonalds and the infamous Ronald McDonald. The ‘Come as a Clown, Eat like a King’ promotes the offer of free Whoppers to the first 500 people who come in store dressed as clowns.

Insurance is usually a topic which can be difficult to make engaging. We think RPA and Farmers Insurance did a great job of using Halloween to grab their audience’s attention.

Ada Lovelace Day

Today marks Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration of the achievements of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) was founded in 2009 by Suw Charman-Anderson and aims to create new role models to encourage more girls into STEM careers and support those women already working in STEM.

Ada was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She recognised that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and created the first algorithms intended to be carried out by such a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first to recognise the full potential of a ‘’computing machine’’ and the first computer programmer.

Today we’d like to spotlight some of our female Data Scientists here at LoopMe. Find out about Yarsoslava and Maryna’s roles, responsibilities and why they pursued a career in STEM.
