Dietz & Watson: Halloween ft Vincent Pastore
TV Commercial Review
Heart or Humor
Dietz & Watson unveiled its Halloween campaign. Created by the advertising agency Red Tettemer and directed by Michael Fagan, the advert features an undead mobster called The Gabaghoul played by Vincent Pastore well known from the HBO series The Sopranos (Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero).
Often cast as a mafioso, Vincent Pastore, 75, is celebrating Halloween as a deli meat-hawking demon.
This is the first Halloween advert that we features in 2021, but we can remember good Halloween ads from previous years.
The ad is funny and well done for Halloween, but fingers cut in a food ad? seriously?
