* The "Sorry I was Eating a Milky Way" commercials have people eating Milky Ways while simultaneously absentmindedly trying to perform another task. I guess it's funny when the tattoo artist accidentally misspells "No Regrets" on a biker's arm, but what would happen if a mother was eating one while her child was ''[[AdultFear in danger]]''?

* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1Z91YkPatw State Farm]] commercial. It starts off really cute with the way every time the couple says they're "never" going to do something, they turn right around and do it. It's cute up until the last "never" where the husband/dad looks down at his asleep family and says softly, "I'm never letting go." Except he's shown to have contradicted every single "never" throughout his life to this point, which just means he probably left them a few weeks/months/years later.

** 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]].

* A commercial aired for MLK that started with telling us on his gravestone, he has "Free at last" written. This isn't the problem. They then go on to say that [[UnfortunateImplications death is the "free man's freedom"]] (exact words). The scary part comes in when they say ''[[GrimReaper they want to]]'' '''''[[GrimReaper spread this freedom to everyone]]'''''. It is perfectly acceptable to cower in fear.

** The worst yet have been the new PB&J commercials, featuring '''''a nurse eating a baby. IN FRONT OF ITS PARENTS.'''''
*** And now with the A&W Root Beer and Orange Crush variants we have a commercial that's basically a girl getting the two Pop-Tarts drunk on their own sodas. Made worse by the fact that she utters a line to the effect of "Can't handle your soda boys?", implying that she's going to do something with the Pop-Tarts. (And no, not eat them.)

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Pes79Ijczw This Lending Club commercial]] has a woman about to cut her credit cards, but is stopped by the girl in the picture in the credit cards. These are ''living credit cards asking not to be cut up to bits.'' At the end, the woman ''starts cutting up the card,'' and the girl in the picture '''SCREAMS!'''
** And if that wasn't enough, the commercial is actually called, ''"Taking Matters Into Your Own Hands"''

* A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMuLzRxrNYI commercial]] for NewSuperMarioBros2 has a bunch of coins popping up and things turning into Mario coins. At one point a ice cream van turns into coins and the driver falls through it. The next scene has a whole city of skyscrapers turning into coin. Now if a car turning into coin means the driver can no longer sit in it, what happened to all the people in the upper floors of the Skyscraper?

* 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 [[PansLabyrinth Pale Man at the dinner table with eyes in his hands.]]
