Skittles is a brand associated with fun and deliciousness, but this Halloween-themed ad will have you spitting out your Skittles in fear. If you have a long-standing fear of spiders, you're gonna love this ad. Not.

The ad follows the plight of a couple of boys all dressed up in their Halloween costumes. One of the boys gets himself wound up in a spider's web while trying to steal some Skittles. His friend offers to help just as the giant spider itself shows up to help. At this point, it appears that the two boys and the spider have forged an unusual friendship.

But is the arachnid really a good samaritan or does he have some kind of dialobical plan, perhaps involving dinner? Watch this Halloween-themed ad to find out!

This spooky Skittles spot was put together by the DDB Chicago ad agency.
