'Halloween 2' butchers the worst banner ads


We've all wanted to kill those dancing morons in the insurance banner ads, but leave it to serial-killing slasher Michael Myers to figure out how. To promote Rob Zombie's sequel-remake, Halloween 2, digital agency Heavenspot created a series of banner ads that feature Myers abducting sexy singles, boogeying buffoons, a BlackBerry-beating executive and even a John Hodgman stand-in. It's a clever twist on a banner campaign, even if the movie's "Family is forever" tagline seem a bit out of place at the end. Or maybe the Myers family just ended up with some terrible acting gigs, though only one of his relatives comes to mind.
