At first glance, you may think this commercial is a fairly simple McDonald’s Happy Meal commercial… but wait! There’s more!
How many of you owned a McDonald’s Halloween Happy Meal pail? Raise your hand. I know I did. This commercial is from the early ’90s, but if memory serves me correctly, the Halloween pails debuted in the late ’80s. I know for sure I had the pumpkin pail and I believe the ghost pail as well.
One question though — did anyone ever actually use these to go trick or treating? If so, you were really limiting your candy intake for the night. I kept my pails around for crayon and Hot Wheels storage.
