From Choreographed Christmas Campaigns to Slasher Candy Ads

These November 2016 commercial trends range from slasher candy ads to choreographed Christmas campaigns. While examples like House of Fraser's music video-inspired commericals spotlight independent music acts like Laura Mvula -- who covers 'Ready or Not Here I Come' in the spot -- Kit Kat's latest Halloween commercial pays tribute to vintage slasher flicks like cult classic 'Friday the 13th.'

Similarly, the chocolate bar giant also enlists the help of Chance the Rapper in a second Halloween spot that features a singing soundtrack by the musician who dons a bear suit with his signature baseball cap in the ad.

Additional November 2016 commercials to take note of include Sprite's latest celebrity-studded offering that features rapper Lil Yachty and basketball star Lebron James along with Nike's 'Come out of Nowhere' commercial -- also starring James -- that encourages viewers to never underestimate the underdog.
