Spooky Supplies

by Syd Briscoe


Party City: “It's Alive” - 40s

US party supply chain store Party City prepare for Halloween with chutzpah in this well crafted ad. A couple of employees get things ready in-store after hours, only for the costumes and decorations to have a lot more life in them than one might expect.

From giant spiders wandering the aisles to body-popping robots crashing in from space, the pair go about their business unperturbed despite their magical companions. Lovely creature design and seasonal visuals (we particularly like the zombie suspended next to the kit for making similar wounds) makes sure things end on a suitably spooky note, too.
