It's that time of the year again, when the kids dress up like ghouls and goblins and then become real ones after they go trick or treating and eat way too much candy. This new spot out of WDCW presents a simple way to tame that Halloween beast -- Papa Murphy's take and bake Jack-o-Lantern pizza.

The ad, which depicts how children morph into scary monsters when they O.D. on sugar, was actually inspired by a real-life incident: when copywriter Jennie Moore's own daughter Cassidy had her own epic Halloween meltdown.
