Revenge of The Son of 10 Ads to Disgust & Disturb You

Hi, dear readers.  It's that time of the month again.  The time where I look at how twisted marketing campaigns can get and continue to marvel at the bizarre nature of advertising.

As before, I stumbled upon ads that are disgusting and disturbing-some of which are funny, some of which are confusing.  Some are also quite effective, while others left me scratching my head.

And, if you've read the previous entries in this series, you know that I'll start off gently, but things will get a bit more twisted towards the end-so beware!

1. Finetra


Holy crap!  How they got that kid into bed with that critter is beyond me.  Every kid I know would be freaking out, crying, twitching, etc.  Yet there she is, sound asleep.

Which makes me wonder about the mental stability of the kid...

2. Mr. Min Wood Scent

That's Mr. Pinocchio to you.That's Mr. Pinocchio to you.

Wood scent?  What?  And I don't want to know where he sprays it.

3. Radio Station

I couldn't quite read the logo for the station name... something like Hugman 98.0.I couldn't quite read the logo for the station name... something like Hugman 98.0.

This poor girl.  Not only is she latched with braces, but she has her ears on her face.  Dating would be difficult.

I wonder if her eyes are on the sides of her head.  Driving would be impossible... unless she can make clicking sounds like that kid I saw on 60 Minutes who navigates around like a bat.

4. Tara

Okay, so my mind works in naughty ways...  Sue me.


I get the idea, but that doesn't make it less gross.  A steaming pile of dog s**t with a sign stuck in it doesn't quite work for me when it comes to the idea of brain damage.

Whoever put the sign in the poop is the one that needs to go to the site.  He has a bizarre fetish and needs therapy.

6. Philippine Animal Welfare Society

Um... This is just wrong.  Though after Charles Schultz's demise, the money must've gotten pretty tight for Charlie and his pals...

7. Basic Soda

And I thought the creepy giggling sun baby thing was scary.  It looks like this Teletubby got in a drunken brawl, smashed someone's head into the mirror, then decided to take a tinkle-winkle.

Okay... get ready for the rougher stuff...

8. Humans For Animals

This makes me glad that seals aren't sentient.  I suspect this seal found the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

We know that the baby had a gun.  It was self-defense.  Yeah... self defense.

9. RI Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Delicious if prepared properly.Delicious if prepared properly.

The last time I was in Mexico, I spent some time in Oaxaca.  There is a huge marketplace in this city, several blocks of vendors pressed into narrow passageways.  But there is also a warehouse-like structure full of produce and meats.

But I never saw any meat dressed like a hooker.  Just on a hook...

This is quite an effective ad: Don't treat people like pieces of meat.  And while unpleasant, it works.

10. Charity SA


This ad from South Africa is just plain disgusting.  I'm not exactly sure what the point is.  It may be difficult to read, but the little tag states, "In her previous life Sandra worked for the paparazzi. Looks like she's in on the filthy scoop now.  Do something good in this life."

Um... okay... So if you work as a paparazzi you're doomed to get maggots in your rotting flesh?


That's it for this month's installment.  If you want more, go to:
