Tonight we take a break from historic murders and get slightly silly as Eric offers up some Spooky Commercials. Sure, you'd expect to see something scary if you were watching Tales from the Darkside...but what about Full House? Surely nothing could scar you for life during an episode of one of the most saccharin shows in TV history, right?
These commercials could pop up and terrify you when you least expected. Like the one where a monster, most likely Freddy Kruger, demands you call his 900 number to chat. Or the bizarre Japanese commercial where a beautiful woman introduces a monster baby to Kleenex. How about The Smurfs getting bombed? Death watching over a local pond waiting to kill children? Vincent Price hawking books full of arcane knowledge? It's all here. Plus the PSA where McGruff the crime Dog convinced Eric that he was mere moments away from being kidnaped and never seen again!
