* The "Respect the Pouch" ads for Capri Sun juice. Various kids are subjected to ridiculous BodyHorror tortures, like having their hands and feet turned into whoopie cushions, having their entire body, except their head deflate, and one kid being [[AndIMustScream being turned into a dog's chew toy]] because they disrespect the couch. Somehow, the kids get along pretty well in the online cartoons and the games.

* Commercials for Jello Temptations revolve around parents punishing their children for eating their ''adult'' pudding! In one, the mother uses storytime as a not-so-veiled threat that she's going to make all her daughter's favorite things disappear FOREVER because she stole her snack; another uses a campfire horror story about 'the Chocobeast' to terrorize her kids with her husband's help. A third involves an ImagineSpot where a boy thinks about how his parents will turn him out onto the streets if he dares eat their pudding...

** Then there's poor Olive, [[MoralEventHorizon who is forced into child labor by working in a coal mine]] for eating the pudding. Apparently Chocolate Temptations is looking to tap into the 'AbusiveParents who enjoy chocolate pudding' market.
* The M&Ms commercial where the Brown M&M knowingly sets up the Red M&M up for a situation in which he gets ripped apart (offscreen) in a scene that plays like a rape scene. Most likely because he annoyed her by coming onto her.
* The infamous "No Pressure" commercials for the 10:10 campaign, which had people (including ''{{children|AreInnocent}}''!) getting blown up for not agreeing to take part.
* Never, ''ever'', [[Advertising/NeverSayNoToPanda say no to Panda]] cheese. Or a giant, silent, ''terrifying'' panda will appear to ruin your day.
* Japanese Sega Saturn spokesman Advertising/SegataSanshiro hunted down people who weren't playing the system, then beat them unconscious and left their battered bodies in piles as he walked away to find new targets. One commercial for Bomberman Fight!! showed Segata throwing an opponent into the air with such force that he exploded when he hit the ground TWICE.
