The Son of 10 More Ads to Disgust & Disturb You

The insane methods of marketing never end.  For a while I was concerned that I would run out of disturbing, disgusting advertisements.  After writing three installments (11 Ads to Disgust & Disturb You, 10 More Ads to Disgust & Disturb You, and 10 Even MORE Ads to Disgust & Disturb You), I worried that I had milked the creepy cow dry.

But, no.  I'm now convinced that there will be endless waves of bizarre ads that are either memorable because they are embraced by the global community or because they're just plain wrong and odd.

As before, I'm giving you, dear reader, a warning: these get really twisted toward the end.  In this case, even I had a hard time...

1. Science Diet

Go to the light, Carol Ann.  There is peace and serenity in the light...Go to the light, Carol Ann. There is peace and serenity in the light...


Yes.  It's the exact same effect when my girlfriend shines a light through my ear.


2. Rachachuros Seasoning

I can't be the only person who finds this scary...I can't be the only person who finds this scary...

What the hell is up with marketing people and plucked, muscled poultry?  If you've read my other articles, you'll find weight-lifting chickens all over the place.

And it creeps me out!  Stop it!  Please, stop (*sobbing*).  I just want to sleep at night without having some sort of poultry-based nightmare.


3. Gaia


On the other hand...  I think the muscled poultry takes advantage of the little guy.

I must admit: I love foie gras.  I'll also admit to being a hypocrite when it comes to food.  I can't shoot Bambi, but I sure will eat Bambi.

Well, unless I'm stranded in the wilderness.  Rules go by the wayside then.

My ramblings aside, this is a very effective ad.  Makes me reconsider eating fatty liver paté-even if it is soooo delicious.


4. Lust Erotic Boutique

So this is what kiddie porn looks like...?  "Nature's Pride" starring Barry Bee and Beatrice Blue Bird...So this is what kiddie porn looks like...? "Nature's Pride" starring Barry Bee and Beatrice Blue Bird...


Um...  Okay, I'm good with some porn.  I mean, I'm a guy, right.  In general, we are drawn toward visual representations of sex-unlike women, who are more tactile.

But this...  The bee looks... like a rapist.  Look at the drool...  And the look on his face!  He's... creepy!  He's the bee that you would warn your kids about!

I feel sorry for the bird.  But, if she has her wits about her, she can eat the berry and get away.  Then peck the little bees eyes out.

I don't quite get the tag line.  "It Shouldn't Be Any Less Disturbing When It's a Girl."

Um... yes it should.  In fact, it is MUCH LESS DISTURBING when a girl is pregnant instead of a boy!  Boys getting pregnant... hmmm... haven't seen that before.  That's sort'a like seeing Bigfoot or the Chupacabra.  You hear about these things, but few ever see them.  In fact, unless I'm poorly informed (which I very well could be in this day and age) NOBODY ever sees a pregnant man.

I understand that this ad is trying to curb teenage pregnancy.  But it's just... well, stupid.

WOMEN GET PREGNANT.  MEN DON'T.

LAME CATCH PHRASE.  BAD AD.  GO TO YOUR ROOM.

6. USAID & Partners of the Americas

I found this in the deli next to the hummus.I found this in the deli next to the hummus.

This is an ad for awareness of child abuse.  Okay.  I get it.  But that's either a huge Styrofoam pallet with an insane amount of plastic wrap, or one really tiny kid.

I could see this ad actually being more effective for human trafficking awareness.  The theme of isolation and storage, portable container, etc.

As far as abuse goes, the kid looks sort'a ready for a marinade of Italian dressing, garlic, and onion powder.

Now that's fine eatin', my friends.


7. Lego


I agree with the tagline: "Kid's Shouldn't Watch Too Much TV."

I don't agree that building a projectile weapon out of Legos is a good solution to bad viewing habits.

What a bizarre ad.  I'm not even going to try to understand the message.


8. Casa Perfume

Yuck.Yuck.

Yep.  Those are soiled diapers.  And yep, this product purports to solve the odor issue that so many diapers would create.

I can't even get my cat's litter box to smell good.  The stench of eight million poop filled diapers could never be overcome with one little spray can.  NEVER.

Okay-here's you're warning.  Faithful readers will know that things get a bit rough towards the end of these articles.  And these even threw me off bit.  Get ready...

9. Association of Women Against Genital Mutilation


Apparently 2 million girls each year are subjected to or commit genital mutilation.

Um...

That statistic alone is alarming, but you couple it with an awareness campaign that uses a rusty razor blade as a crotch insert in bikini bottoms and you've got some strange marketing indeed.

Next they should do an ad with a guy eating a hot dog and put that into men's swimsuits.  Though that may be misinterpreted...

Yeah... probably would.  Bad idea.

What's funny, yet probably difficult to see, is the confusion on the woman's face in the ad.


10. Goodparent.pl


As usual, I saved the most disturbing for last.

Actually, disturbing doesn't even describe what I feel about these ads.  Are they effective?  Hell, yeah they are.


I'm at odds to approve of these.  I hate the exploitation of children in pain to convey the message of... well, children in pain.  These images hurt.

But they work.  And they remind us of how delicate children are.

Until next time, dear readers, take care!

Commit genital mutilation??

No girl commits genital mutilation.

They have it forced on them. You might want to rephrase that.

That would be like saying babies commit abortions on themselves or victims raped themselves or children committed sexual abuse on themselves.

Of all the disturbing things here (and there were some disturbing things) that sentence was the most disturbing.

Just what the F am I missing?

If you don't play with our toys you will become a suicidal alcoholic?

USAID and Partners ad

This ad is about human tracking. The text translates to:

"Sexual explotation of children and adolescents. This is not the product that Brazil wants to export to the world."

Ah...

Then it definitely makes more sense.  I found it in a "child abuse" ad category.  My Spanish is horribly rusty.  Thanks for the heads up!

Spanish?

Of course, in Brazil they speak Portuguese, not Spanish.

See...

... My Portuguese isn't very good either.
