Surely you didn’t think brands would take a pass on Halloween as an opportunity to role out scary tweets.
While some focus on the spirit of the festival, others don’t get tired of shameless product placement that makes us squirm. Here are the good, bad and the downright terrifying ones from this Halloween:

Anything on Vine seems to work well these days, and it seems that Dunkin’ Donuts is on cue, with this cute trick-or-treat short story starring donuts.

Starting to involve them while they’re still young. This is too cute!

The perfect post for Twitter. And probably very true. Maybe that’s why it’s caught on so well, with even another brand, Chips Ahoy jumping in.

We appreciate you trying to break conventions here Revlon, but try not promoting your product so obviously next time.
Try a dash of originality and not stating the obvious next time, Century 21.

We know it’s the day for candy and spooky tips are alright, but must you put a Kit Kat in there EVERYWHERE?
Thanks for recycling an age-old superstition and stating the very obvious. No brownie points for you.

There’s more to life than just deals, Target. Get with it.
