You know those ads which you watched either as a child or an adult for a product while the commercial/ad itself scares the living hell out of you? This is the topic where nightmares lay...

Welcome to the nightmare zone. First up, a very popular scary ad...

Yep... the PS3 Baby commercial, the entire thing feels as though the creators of it were on drugs and somehow the sony board of dudes didn't even notice this... somehow... First off, it has a doll... +10K creepy right there. It starts moving and having what looks like a siezure... times that 10K creepy with 100K WTF scaredness. Then we find out it has telepathic powers... why the hell does such a nightmarish being have such powers? WHY???

2nd, a Commercial I reviewed before. JOUST!!!

I know that this commercial may seem awesome at first... but watch the entire thing for the nightmare fuel to begn... seriously. I will wait...

...

...

SEE!!! WTF was that? Basically, this commercial is saying to us. if you put this game in your game system, knightst riding ostriches will come into your home and explode everything, leaving an egg behind which WILL make you one of the birds they are riding... that is insanely scary actually if you really think about it.

3, and finally, one which is not the scariest, but downright unsettling.

At first, my reaction was the same as the womans... scared shitless by whatever the hell THAT THING is that touched her face. The way it talks with how it move is so damn creepy that it HAS to be an alien under that thing... waiting to murder your ass once you buy the candy and go out into the parking lot.

Then we find out it is some kids on top of each others shoulders... however... anyone with a pulse has to admit, that this commercial would have been MUCH creepier if they ended it before the kids showed up.

Oh, and how the hell does ANYONE, espicially a little kid develop a voice so damn creepy as... that things is beyond even my comprehension.

What ads do you think are some of the most scary in existence?

This one gives me the fucking willies everytime, I don't know how this got past a single board meeting, but hey what do I know?

Cigarette commercials used to be pretty damn scary when you think about it in hindsight.

@MikkaQ: THE FUCK?????

Okay, I have to comment on the clip for how fucking insane it is.

Basically, some guy got a knife, looks like he could shank anyone any second, but instead does something creepier by creating a human/...something with human thumbs just to use A PHONE...

Question... where the hell did the thumbs come from??? dun DUN DUUUUUUUNNNNN!!!!!

One of the Call of Duty commercials unnerved me when I was younger. This flygirl talks about how she's supporting the troops, and you can only see her lips- you assume she's supporting the Allies, but as the camera pans out, you see there's a Nazi flag behind her. Nazis always made me more creeped out than any imaginary monster in a movie.

Back when Playstation ads were both creepy and awesome (from 2000).

Did that Joust commercial actually air on TV? It's over 2 minutes long!

#13 Edited by phampire (265 posts) -

i love eccentric and slightly unsettling ads, the ps3 ones were too random to work. The panda cheese ads strike the right balance in the realm of creepy humor.

Yea, those early PS3 commercials were creepy as hell. Although I'm glad that Kevin Butler's a thing, now, I still long for a day when he summons a PC using telepathic crows.

I miss the creepy burger king commercials featuring such antics as a dude waking up next to The King in his bed, finding him holding a burger at the ready. Amazing stuff.

Those were the days when ignorance was bliss. And I always liked Wilmas backside. Betty was pretty hot period.

I still find this to be one of the most creepy, unsettling and disturbing ad campaigns I've ever seen. Everything reeks of discomfort and exploitation.

The scariest thing to come from the Resident Evil series. Nemesis and window popping zombie dog be damned.

NSFW

@MikkaQ: ...How in the hell does someone NOT notice that their thumbs are missing instantly? That dude deserves not to have thumbs if he is to much of a dumbass not to notice that his damn thumbs are GONE.

If I woke up without thumbs, I would fucking know it instantly. That man must have some sort of massive ADD problems.

Maybe it's subtle commentary on how the video game and smartphone generations are blind to the world around them. So.. buy our phone. Or something,

@TentPole: Wat... okay... I have no clue on what to think of this right now... I... don't...

Now then, I do have another video. This is a stretch, but I found it messed up. IMO.

Now, I know people are thinking why this ad is scary, now. I want you guys to think about this for a second, every, single, time, you eat into a Hershey product, you are destroying a civilization of chocolate people who are just trying to celebrate Christmas. Imagine melting for a second, now think about what these poor being have to deal with every single time you buy a piece of chocolate, they most likely are singing because they KNOW they are going to die sooner or later so they can somehow have some sembelance of life by just trying to ignore it until the very end...

Okay... I am looking WAY into this... but you know what... I like doing that. Makes things more interesting.

That Resident Evil 4 one was pretty well fucked up.

#26 Posted by Penzilneck (423 posts) -

Nothing to do with games, and not really unsettling, but simply startling. I wonder if there were any problems around these ads because of people with heart conditions.

#27 Posted by Jay444111 (2441 posts) -

Well people, I found another commercial that disturbed the shit out of me while watching the new hulu commercial with Will Arnett. Warning... it is kinda fucked up.

#28 Posted by hinderk (683 posts) -

This one always used to creep me out for some reason.

#29 Posted by jerseyscum (852 posts) -

This aired on Canadian TV...so it's probably safe for work. I think.

@jerseyscum: holy shitt that was fucked upp

@jerseyscum: Ya those work place safety ad's always give me the chills. It's the screams that do it.

Really, Canada? Who in the hell thought that was a good idea? That's terrifying.

#33 Posted by jerseyscum (852 posts) -

Oh I got some more good ones :)

The second ad was actually directed by Darren Aronofsky! (Pi, Requeiem for a Dream and that shitty Fountain movie)

#34 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3032 posts) -

It's the Resident Evil 4 one for me.

Not exactly scary, but it was unsettling to see whilst trying to enjoy a nice comedy movie.

Seriously, though, the workplace safety one with the kitchen is real horrifying, jeez.

Not truly scary, but definitely bizarre and creepy.

That RE4 commercial..if an ad man in the U.S. came up w/ that, he would've been reprimanded for the very idea. We're just a tad more prudish 'round these parts. The PS3 doll commercial takes the creepiness cake out of all of em, though. I'm gonna need to check under the bed tonight.
