When you go to Target for one item, you'll end up leaving with a shopping cart full. That's just basic science.

But thanks to an actually delightful Halloween campaign from the store, you might just need two shopping carts on your next visit.

In a new campaign for Target's Halloween merchandise, the retailer takes viewers on an immersive, 360-degree video "choose your own adventure."

You just start at the video above, and follow the story from room to room in a haunted house.

In a world that's full of advertising, it's nice for a change of pace.

Just make sure to not block the entry way into the Dollar Spot, or some soccer moms could get violent.

Pepsi was really proud about having a lot of calories

Digging through whatever magical suitcase they have in their possession, Vox found this old ad showing Pepsi bragging about having more calories than a pork chop.

The 1942 ad placed in the New York Times tells a lot about the struggles facing America in that time period. The country had just entered World War II the year before and the war effort was scrambling to out fit a military fighting in Europe and the Pacific, while trying to overcome the economic devastation of the previous decade.

To the fledgling nutrition science and popular assumptions out there, what America needed was more energy, so the advertisers tried to highlight that in its pitch.

Why eat a crummy ol' tomato when you can get so much more food energy from a bottle of Pepsi?!

Apparently, this was part of a larger campaign.

They wholly embraced this image, using the slogan "The Drink with the Quick Food Energy".

So, it's not like they were hiding anything...

Never before has a bunch of skeletons been so heartwarming.

A new ad from the Ad Council shows people of all different ages, genders, races, sexualities, ethnicities, disabilities and religions coming together behind a digital screen.

The viewers only see their skeletons at first kissing, dancing and hugging with Mary Lambert’s “She Keeps Me Warm” playing in the background, until the real people step out to reveal themselves.

The spot is part of their “Love Has No Labels” campaign, and it already has over 1.5 million views since it was released on Tuesday. It was shot on Valentine’s Day of this year.

From the Ad Council:

Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues.

You will cry. So be prepared.

Sriracha pizza pretty much sells itself, right? But an ad agency in Israel thought Domino’s needed some promotional material with a bit more kick.

Hence this severed tongue, dressed in leather with a ball gag in its mouth, ready for a good whipping.

“You’re going to suffer and enjoy every moment,” the text warns.

The image, from advertising agency McCann Israel, was reportedly “leaked” online even though the ad was never intended to be published and never was.

Tim McIntyre, a rep for Dominos, told People Magazine that it was pitched but never approved.

“It never ‘officially’ appeared anywhere, because it was ill-advised, unfunny and not brand-appropriate,” McIntyre said. “In a word, it was stupid.”

I bet it doesn’t seem so stupid to them now that it’s getting all this online attention.

On Twitter, Domino’s is telling people that the ad was “unauthorized.”

You know those little pizza snacks that burn the hell out of your mouth as soon as you bite into them? How could you forget?

Just in time for a weekend-long celebration marijuana legalization in Oregon and Washington, D.C., Tim and Eric have put out a new ad for Totino's Pizza Rolls.

And it is so Tim and Eric.

It's called "Pizza Freaks Unite," and freaks doesn't even begin to describe what is going on in this video.
