Since Halloween Was a Blip This Year, Let’s Watch Two Creatives Get in the Spirit Instead


Our favorite holiday took a rightful backseat last week to the chaos and suffering surrounding Hurricane Sandy, so consider this your Halloween hangover post that never was. We unfortunately missed Wes Anderson‘s latest quirk-fest, Moonrise Kingdom, so it’s hard to identify with these characters beyond what see saw in those Bill Murray-narrated trailers for the film.

Anyhow, since dressing up and celebrating Halloween this year was a moot point here in the Northeast, let’s instead watch the sped-up transformation of Chicago-based creatives Amanda Grandel and Max Mearsheimer, art director at Proximity/Energy BBDO and freelance ACD/copywriter, respectively. We honestly can’t remember the last time we put so much effort into a Halloween costume (going as Kumar three years in a row didn’t help), so we appreciate the pair’s effort and anxiously await next year’s festivities.
