Halloween TV Commercials 2021 Edition Part 2: Local TV Commercials


With today being October 20th, it means we're now in the home stretch of the season. No more playing around. Time to get seriously Halloweeny!

Today I offer another round of entertaining spooky TV commercials. But this time, we're focusing on local TV commercials, which aren't usually high budget, but have a great deal of fun and creativity. Let's get to it!

We start with this quick commercial for Mel-Mac Shoes in Laurel, Mississippi, which goes the classic "Halloween Safety Tips" route.

This is a cool commercial for the local dark attraction Pope's Haunted Farm in Texas. Local commercials are so awesome!

Another case in point!

And the hits just keep on comin'!

Finally, McDonald's is an international business of course, but this particular commercial was produced for a local franchisee in Minnesota and only aired there. A real fun one!


While we're focusing on local business, please patronize the local businesses in your area. They need your help more than ever.

Joe: thanks as always!

Lady M: Yes, the Serling-style narration really adds to the feel of the commercial. Thanks for reading!

Michelle: Thank you so much! I'm nothing if not whimsical :)

Thank you for everything you do for the Countdown, we couldn't do this without you!

The sound effect in the commercial for Mel-Mac shoes (Halloween safety) sounds a lot like the sound effect for Greg Brady's "UFO" in the episode where he tricks Bobby and Peter into thinking they've seen one.
