I think I have my old pail from when I was a kid back home. The new pails look so commercial then classic Mcdonald's Halloween.

They don't care about the traditional look, as long as they can promote Monster High.

Maybe they'll receive some emails of disappointment and decide differently next year.

Oh well. My sons love Angry Birds/Star Wars, so they'll get a kick out of them.

My daughter doesn't know a thing about Monster High, so I don't know what she'll think.

At least last year they used Scooby Doo which made sense.

This idea of McDonald's being too commercial during the Halloween season is another good example of how messed up this generation is.

Over the past decade everything has become more commercial. But that's not to say past decades such as the 80's and 90's weren't ether. However they were more scaled back. Mention the Hamburgler or the Fry guys to this generation and they probably would give you a dumbfound look not knowing what you are talking about.

There's just less originality in marketing in general, but it's especially apparent during the Holidays. Why be creative with your brand when you can just attach already known properties to it?

Over the years, I've become a big fan of the efforts by soda merchandisers to get creative with their displays in stores. The layout, design, and labor put into these displays becomes more and more appreciable each year.

Here are a few from our local Walmart this year:







And this photo is from a local grocer called FoodFair, taken a few years ago...

Originality has been on it's way of the dodo for a while. Though it's nice to see it when it's there.

The McBoo bags from 1990 were better than the buckets McDonalds gave. They are really sturdy and hold a lot of candy.
