To celebrate Halloween this year, Miami Ad School students created this horrifying ads.

The spookiest holiday has passed us by once again. And while for many it merely meant kick-ass costumes, gorging on sweets you bought for trick or treaters and scaring the hell out of your housemates with rubber spiders, these Miami Ad School students also saw it as an opportunity to get some brilliant work done.

Joaquín Alvarez Limón and Soham Chatterjee created these scary ads for Harvey Nichols in a way that is on brand and yet still manages to shock and surprise us. It's the perfect combination of "that's an interesting, disruptive idea" and "yeah, the brand would actually do this".
