10 More Ads to Disgust & Disturb You

8. BetterThanBeer.com

Ow!  My eye!Ow! My eye!

Some people think that more is better.  In this case...  I dunno.  I can't agree with that statement. Remember the woman in Total Recall?  As attractive as the young lady in this ad is, a third boob would just plain send me flyin' outta the room.

However, it would be quite the asset if she ever had triplets.

Okay.  I warned you.  If you thought the ads above were crazy, here's where they get really messed up.  And also where my sense of humor sort of goes away.  Sorry for that.

 

9. Don't Speed Near Schools


I couldn't find the company that manufactured these.  From what I can gather these things were placed on the windshields of parked cars.  I find this ad to be abhorrent to the extreme.  It is as disturbing as it gets.

That being said... I admire the message.  It gets down and dirty and tells it like it is.  No BS, no compromises.  The fact that it is unpleasant to view should not dispel the importance of its message.

Which leads to:

10. PETA

Yeah... PETA.


These guys are as extreme as you can get.  And they don't pull punches with their messages.  This ad is no exception.  And while I don't totally agree with the viewpoint they propound, I can't help but admire the creativity in the ad campaign.

There were other ads, one of which involved a human-sized chicken getting beaten to death in a prison yard.  Pretty brutal.

Well, that about wraps up this round of Ads to Disturb & Disgust You.  But rest assured... I'll be back with more.  It's not like there's a lack of twisted advertising out there...

Feel free to comment about any of these in the Comments section below.  I'll respond as much as possible.

ohlawd what is this I don't

ohlawd what is this I don't even

Just goes to show, these days advertisers care mostly about getting your attention no matter what.

Also, "Katz's Deli" officially has the most disgusting sandwich I've ever seen, including the pile of mouldy lunches my little brother had in his backpack over the summer.

Awesome continuation of the first article. I highly enjoyed it.

Ad 1: C'mon, the baby's

Ad 1: C'mon, the baby's being cradled. Might get splinters, but it doesn't look like it's about to fall.

2: Bizzare.

3: Disgusting. "Hey! Look over here! We have a MESSAGE!" And absolutely no scruples in delivering it.

4: That sandwich looks yummy. Piles and piles of delicious meaty meat. Chomp!

5: Must be your recent medical experience 'cause I don't see anything disturbing.

6: Sure, try to convince us of a scientific theory by ignoring science. That'll work.

7: I'm with you on this one. So ... You lost your job as a masturbation tool? What?

8: Not disturbing. Hits its intended target: Beer-swilling men obssessed with breasts. Bingo.

9: Horrific. What about little kids getting into those cars before mommy or daddy remove the horror show? Somebody ought to be fired for that. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

10: I'm not sure why PETA gets sympathy for ramming their message down everyone's throats with horrific images. "Let's convince people not to eat meat by showing how psychotic we are." Visual terrorism will never accomplish anything beneficial. Change your tactics PETA.

LOL

Yay!  Glad you liked it.  And yeah... I find that sandwich to be just plain nasty....  I must say that I like the ad copy, however.  It's gutsy.  Gutsey?  Gut-c?  Hmmm... need to look that one up...

Thanks for the feedback! 

Thanks for the feedback!  Obviously my responses to these ads are insanely influenced by my initial reaction to them.  Hence the Baby thing...  See... Babies scare me because they are so fragile.  So that ad freaked me right out at first glance.

 And I can't agree with you on the sandwich.  Ew.  A thinner cut... yeah... I'd be all over it...  heh.

fish man & polar bear

I think the reason this fish guy is so creepy is because he comes so close to looking like a human. The bear was just plain sad. Where do you find these things??? I usually fast-forward through commercials but surely things haven't that much since I got my DVR?
