There is an idea but it's incorrect and forced, geez. Guinness has nothing to do with pumpkins.

unless you drink it OUT of a pumpkin, and to be honest a pumpkin full of Guinness sounds about right, right now

Very nice art direction. Let's not get too literal here people. Seriously... it's an ad promoting Guinness consumption during the Halloween season. I get it. It's simple, and it makes me stop and look at the pretty picture. Mission accomplished. Let's move on.

I'd say the finessed visual almost saves this most ordinary "Let's do something seasonal" ad.

Trick! This needs a much stronger connection between Guinness and Halloween to work.
