The Son of 10 More Ads to Disgust & Disturb You



5. United Way

I don't want to know what this guy did for this to happen...I don't want to know what this guy did for this to happen...


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...

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.

hi hello

you are a pussy if these disturbed you... only a couple were actually wrong or 'disturbing'... the rest were just mediocre, some even very effective.

Lego?

A sweaty drunk guy blowin' his brains out?

Just what the F am I missing?

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

PLAY WITH OUR TOYS NOW!

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.

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