Scary Good Job. Benjamin Moore Terrifies Some Unsuspecting Contractors To Sell Paint.
To promote Benjamin Moore's Ultra Spec® 500 paint, the Martin Agency and director Jason Zada came up with a Halloween stunt and hired some unsuspecting interior painters for the "Scariest Job In The World."
They asked them to paint the interior of a dilapidated hotel late at night. Greeted by a creepy butler who told them that "years ago people with mineral diseases were kept here for a period of time" the painters began their work, only to be exposed to creaking chairs, the sound of chains, flickering lights, swaying chandeliers and finally a ghostly apparition of a woman scary enough to make the most macho of men wet their pants.
The teaser video is followed up by a 'testimonial' video for the heavy marketing, shown below:
