* The old "Mac Tonite" McDonalds commercials had a faintly spooky central figure with a crescent moon head. [[RetroactiveRecognition The actor has moved on]] to, among other things, the [[Film/PansLabyrinth Pale Man at the dinner table with eyes in his hands.]]

* In a Pediasure commercial, two mothers are sitting on the sidelines of their children's soccer game. One mother asks if her child looks 'slow'. The child is shown to be a giant container of french fries. The mothers continue to talk and the responding mother says that her daughter has been drinking Pediasure and that 'kids are what they eat.' The mother's child is shown to look like a normal girl, not a giant food, which means that Pediasure is ''[[{{ForsakenChild}} made out of children.]]'' [[{{UpToEleven}} Also,]] [[{{[[{{ImAHumanitarian}} every other child on the field not dressed as a giant food is a cannibal.]]
** That, or they all feed on soccer uniforms

** There was also one commercial containing the most light-hearted outcome: When one boy tries stepping on the pouch, it just bounces to the side and hits a car, making its alarm go off. His friend says, "You're in so much trouble!"

* There this one Buffalo Wild Wings commercial in which one of the employees pulled a switch to inform a power plant worker to shut off all power in the entire city except for the restaurant itself. A city that includes hospitals with patients hooks up to respiratory systems or babies in life support.

** Actually, some of them might have gotten oral from someone with a cold sore and either thought nothing of it, or not looked close enough to spot it. And ''that'' person probably got it from a family member, who Kissed The Baby while they had an active sore.

* I forget what the company was, but in the late '90s/early 2000's (forget which), there was a commercial for high speed internet. A guy who had it proudly proclaimed that due to the fast internet connection, he had been across the internet and back. If you think about it, that could mean he looked at every single site on the internet, which means every twisted, disgusting porn site (including [[{{Lolicon}} the underage]] [[{{Shotacon}} variety...]]), every shock site, every hate site, and probably downloaded everything illegal in existence. Yikes.

* One radio ad for a healthy breakfast cereal is ''entirely based around a home invasion''. The ad starts with a mom getting her kids ready for school, when a stranger forcibly enters their house. When asked who he is, he replies that "I'm the man who's going to swap this cereal (sound effect) for new Grainberry cereal with onyx sorghum!" The son asks, "What's onyx sorghum?" and is told "It's an ancient grain with lots of antioxidants. Ancient Egyptians ate it... you want to build pyramids, don't you Billy?" The mother is completely unconcerned by the fact that not only did somebody break into her house, but he is also now forcing her kids to consume an unidentified product. Instead, she says to the invader, "But my kids like (switch to whisper) ''sugar cereals!''" The man's reply, also in a whisper, is, "What your kids like is ''flavor!''" At this point, the (very young) daughter makes an "Oooh!" sound, which does not exactly sound like she's reacting to something that she's enjoying.
** The whole ad is full of [[NightmareFuel Nightmare Fuel]], but the [[FridgeHorror Fridge Horror]] comes from the realization that the pyramids were built by slaves. ''The man was threatening to sell the son into slavery!''
*** Someone must have realized how terrifying the ad was, because later a version started being aired that changed the "Ancient Egyptians" part to being about prefessional baseball players instead, and much of the rest of the ad was completely cut out, leaving only the initial break-in and the concern about flavor.

* There is a Sprite commercial that shows people walking into each other and jumping into crowds. And then they explode into thousands of droplets of Sprite and splash the bystanders. Which implies that if you drink Sprite, you are [[ImAHumanitarian drinking]] [[SoylentGreen people]]...

** That's nothing. While on the topic of fruit snacks, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eFvIJ_GD0Y this]] Fruit by the Foot commercial with two kids that keep wishing stuff onto each other. After wishing hands and hair into fruit by the foot, one kid wishes the other person's ''DNA'' was made of fruit by the foot. Cue a human-shaped lump of fruit by the foot with clothes on. ''He just killed the person by switching his molecules with a sugary food substance''. That he'll probably [[SoylentGreen eat]].

* Those "Disrespectoids" commercials for Capri Sun that have the kids transforming into inanimate objects for [[DisproportionateRetribution doing something bad to the drink pouch]]. It's supposed to be funny, but then you realize that these kids are going to be like this ''for the rest of their lives.''
