Tesco Halloween Spookermarket

Tesco, the British supermarket chain, is connecting with customers over the Halloween season with “Spookermarket”, an advertising campaign featuring a scary shopping experience. The online film at the heart of the campaign shows customers in a Tesco supermarket being spooked by live scarecrows, a remote-controlled trolley and surprise appearances from scary characters, all caught on hidden cameras. Viewers are directed to four 40 second videos that demonstrate how people can make a petrifying pumpkin, a chilling severed hand, a horrible head in a jar, and paint a creepy clown face. The Tesco site has been loaded with Halloween Spookfest A Night To Remember with ideas for Fang Tastic Fancy Dress, Spooktacular Pumpkins, Gory Food Inspiration, and Haunted Parties.
