Nearly 36 percent of Americans say their biggest source of Halloween costume inspiration comes from what they see in retail stores or costumer shops, according to data collected by the National Retail Federation. A third use online search, and 26 percent turn to friends & family for inspiration.
One of those US retailers, Kmart along with their ad agency Draftfcb Chicago, have created a very cool ad featuring a selection of their Halloween costumes. The ad, filmed using 360 degree cameras, features dancer Monternez “Monty” Rezel of America’s Got Talent. Kmart challenged Rezel to get in and out of 150 of their Halloween costumes in 8 hours.
The event was filmed in a parking lot of a Kmart store in northwest Chicago and broadcast on Livestream. When it was done, Rezel had managed 150 costume changes in just 6 hours and 5 minutes, setting a Guinness World Record in the process.
I love the zombie doctor, werewolf and creepy clown costumes, but that Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a bit dodgy.
The track featured in the ad is ‘Like Wolves’ by David Condos track and is available on Bandcamp.
