Snickers Puts Us In Contact with Creepy Inner Child


The scenario: opening the front door, expecting to find a trick-or-treater, and finding yourself as a six-year-old staring back at you. TBWA/Chiat/Day writer Robert Kleman tells AdCritic that this ad "[taps] into the thought that if you were a kid this Halloween, you'd like to be given Snickers."

Everyone seems to be using it and it's out in places like cafes, shops and restaurants! Even used on tv/radio, by bands, in newspapers and has a site dedicated to the debate about what it really is:
I'm still not entirely sure what it is for, but starkish is beginning to get a cult following in NZ! Check it out!
