1988 Skittles Halloween Commercial

This commercial actually makes a lot of sense. When I was younger, Skittles were a pretty rare treat in my neck of the woods and a house that was handing them out was sure to be the talk of the block. This ad rings true because we used to give advice to our fellow trick or treaters all the time. This might not have been the best strategy, since tricks and treats are a zero sum game, but we had honor and no one could take that from us.
