Netflix Preps for Halloween with Strangely Cheerful Zombies

We really only noticed this ad because we were busy looking for something critical to the happiness of all mankind -- an ice cream parlor open at midnight -- when these undead faces practically leaped off the page.

Then we thought, Oh right, Halloween is coming.

Does commercial preparation for this holiday always have to involve ugly costuming? It would be nice to witness more of the tranquil, pretty sadness of Corpse Bride get-ups, for example.

Look, they even have zesty variations.

I'm pretty sure that Netflix has been running this one since January. It probably fits in with Halloween, but I think that it was intended to be creepy no matter what time of the year someone sees it.

Yeah, this one's been up for untold eons. It took me a looooong time to figure out what the hell it was supposed to mean/suggest. The again, I'm not particularly bright...or I wouldn't be spending so much time trying to parse a goddawful banner ad...

Since you like the creepy guy, I figured you would really dig this ad mis-placement. If I was Keith Richards, I'd be really upset with Netflix right now. Sadly, I'm not sure which photo is the most disturbing.
