Welcome to Dinosaur Dracula’s Creepy Commercials Countdown! A macabre journey into Halloween’s past, using old TV commercials as our pit stops!
These old ads will fill your souls with equal parts nostalgia and dread. You won’t believe how well they capture the spirit of those long ago Halloweens.
All commercial files were donated by Larry P., and I can’t thank him enough. Larry, I owe you one! (Or, 31.)
UPDATE: It’s now October 31st. Halloween, 2012! A combination of bad timing and a GIANT HURRICANE means that I’m cutting out a few entries, but hey, there are still more than 20 to read, and one last one slated to appear in January. For some reason. Enjoy the show, and thanks for reading! Happy Halloween!
