Hey there, guys and ghouls! Like any good trick-or-treater, we’ve weeded out the bad stuff and left you with the tasty mix of social media, online marketing and branding news we like to call 5 Things You Might Have Missed!
1.) Maybe Mom Was Right: We were all warned about taking candy from strangers and TakeThisLollipop.com proves that our parents were on to something. The site, which offers a virtual blue sucker with a razor blade inside to illustrate its point, shows where your information goes when you Like something on Facebook. Complete with a creepy video, this campaign affirms that true horror is sometimes only a click away.
2.) Bring Your iPhone to the Campfire: Here’s a cool iPhone app perfect for the holiday — True Ghost Stories from Around the World. The app lets users access hundreds of thousands of global ghost stories. With new terrifying tales added daily, the app is a storytelling device that’s both global and social.
3.) I Knew Kit Kats Were Good For Me: Call it the candy battle royale or just another blog that weight-obsessed Americans can email to one another, but HealthCastle.com scored a bona fide Internet forward fest with an article that compared the health benefits of some of Halloween’s most popular treats. The list is filled with “no duh” information (like how bad Skittles are for you) but it makes our list for igniting a blogosphere conversation about candy proving that a good old product comparison can still scare up tons of readers.
4.) Zombies, Like People From New Jersey, Love AXE: Here’s another viral campaign from AXE that proves when it comes to frightfully funny online videos, the bro body spray is the one to beat. Hopping on the zombie train right before it peaks, AXE parodies classic horror while dotting it with its signature sexiness and humor.
5.) Costume Fails Continue to Amuse: In what’s become a blogging tradition, we’ve seen more of the country’s most outlandish, most unintentionally wrong and flat-out horrible Halloween costumes populating blogs this year… and we have to say, we still love it!
