Do you like scary movies? Burger King and Jack in the Box, two American fast-food joints, have both acknowledged horror movies are the greatest forms of cinema and are serving classic scary scenes to advertise their newest cuisine. First up, we’ve got Burger King drawing from the 90’s playbook with references to classics like “Scream” and “The Ring.” But Jack in the Box has gone the extra cinematic mile, with a seven-minute short film that plays like a Goosebumps episode, if they had a budget and some childhood trauma to work through.

Bacardi is also getting into the Halloween spirit with a new set of ads paying homage to classic horror films like “Poltergeist” and “The Shining,” along with a glow-in-the-dark edition of their spirit. Note: the bottle is glow-in-the-dark, not the liquid. Do not drink glow-in-the-dark liquid. It’s either a harmful chemical, or going to re-animate the dead — either way it’s not good.

Vodka Cruisers, a brand exclusively associated with your poorest life decisions at eighteen, has created its own streetwear range. Cruiser Couture, a name you can somehow taste, was launched at a bottle-o drive-through, transforming it into a makeshift catwalk. Stay classy, Australia.

Great news for people who like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and whisky, the McLaren’s gang has launched a whisky. The ad targets those fed up with celebrity alcohol ventures, reminding everyone it’s better the devil you know. You don’t want a big corporation in your whisky, because of the implication.

Have you found your soulmate, but neither of you have any friends? Mountain Dew’s new campaign will throw one couple an all-expenses-paid wedding where the only people who can attend are strangers. Even the best man and maid of honour will be chosen at random. If you were planning to elope, but are willing to commit to a bit, as well as each other, this might be for you.

Most of us are only reminded of our regrettable romantic partners when we pass an old date-night spot, or see a red flag. Some unlucky souls have a permanent reminder right on their skin. For those looking to erase their questionable choices completely, Tinder is joining forces with a London tattoo shop to help those stuck with ink they’d rather forget – offering a service to remove tattoos of your ex’s name.

Get in losers, we’re fighting online scamming. October 3rd has the unique honour of being both Mean Girls Day and World Romance Scam Prevention Day. Tinder has teamed up with Mean Girls actor Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels, for those who don’t recognise him without his hair pushed back) for a fun, reference filled warning of the potential dangers of scammers. Don’t give your bank details to strangers on the internet, cause you will get pregnant and die.

A not-so-fun fact: Men are twice as likely to get skin cancer due to lack of awareness about daily sun protection. To combat this, skincare brand Pavise is packaging its SPF like condoms to encourage men to “practice safe sun.”

Want to see something really scary? Chinese beer company Tsingtao, is having a PR nightmare after one of their workers was filmed urinating into a tank. I guess sinking some p*ss on the weekend just took on a whole new meaning.
