Funny Advertising Halloween Costumes for Friday

Care to guess how much Americans will spend on celebrating Halloween this year?

Between the candy, costumes and decorations, Americans will spend $7.4 billion on today’s holiday. While this doesn’t come nearly as close to what analysts predict Americans will spend on Christmas this year, Halloween is a huge holiday for retailers. On costumes alone, consumers will spend about $2.8 billion; that makes sense considering the point of the holiday is to dress up as something you’re not.

Needless to say, costumes have become a Halloween party staple–not just for children, but for adults (who actually spend more on costumes than children). In case you have only hours to get to a party and still have no costume ideas or are second-guessing your “thought this was cleaver, but it’s actually really offensive” costume and need some inspiration, check out these brand-inspired Halloween costumes for today’s Funny Friday. Not only will you almost certainly not offend anyone, you’ll likely be recognized immediately.
