Friday Stir

By Kyle O'Brien 

-With Halloween creeping up, Twix has released a couple of spooky silly spots. Created by The&Partnership, the ads feature Halloween monster encounters that highlight how candy fans don’t just get “more” with a Twix, they get “More-errr,” with the monsters supplying the “errr” part. 


-Also on the Halloween front, an ordinary row house in Queens has been transformed into an artistic jack-o-lantern as imagined by digital street artist @djbehar. The carved eyes of the giant pumpkin house open by pulley, unveiling a majestic chandelier whose light bulbs are pumpkin seeds and a spiral staircase also crafted from seeds. The digital takeover is part of an ongoing series crafted by agency SuperHeroes on behalf of Lenovo’s new Yoga Pro 9i laptop, which powers the mixed reality art.
