Terminix’s ghostly wall-creatures just want to be your friend

Terminix_3What kind of corporate advertising character would you trust if not a creepy, disembodied wall-face like this one? This is one of several haunting visages that chat up a storm in Terminix’s new “If Walls Could Talk” campaign. (They talk mostly about the creepy-crawlies that infest their homes.) And while I’m sure countless hours of challenging special-effects work went into their creation, these faces have that unfortunate, mummy-like, undead look about them. And in a way, that makes their chirpy tone even more disconcerting. Expect to shield your eyes from lots of these wall-faces on television in the coming weeks, if my press packet has it correct.
