— October 21, 2009 — Special
Marketers are always quick to use commercial holidays as the foundation for advertising ideas and product concepts and Halloween marketing is no exception. As much as I hate to admit it, Halloween isn’t so much a ‘holiday’ as it is a marketing field day.

And I’m not just talking about costumes. That’s a whole different story. From Halloween-themed tees to Halloween safe-sex campaigns, here are some of the best examples of Halloween marketing we’ve seen so far!
