* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RdHTeMFPko This Japanese battery commercial]] [[HilariousInHindsight (predating the Duracell and Energizer bunny commercials)]] with the guy telling you the many ways to use the battery, until the end, when we find out he's a robot and then...

* [[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.]]

* In one of the early American commercials for the Nintendo DS commercials the protagonist is almost omnipotent with his ''touch-''powers. There is a lot of Horror looking at the portrayed sketches. In one of them there are 5 guys in the showers, and 2 throw their towels at the protagonist, and laugh at them, it is later seen that he shrinks their reproductive organs, not enough to make them unusable or infertile, but enough to socially ''kill'' the guys in the showers. Now imagine the rejections of future potential girlfriend, or the daily confrontations these guys must face for the REST OF THEIR LIVES, only 2 were actually teasing the protagonist so the rest are just being the VictimizedBystander, they will all probably get into depressions, and 1 of them might commit suicide in the short term, and the rest maybe in long terms since they will no longer able to lead normal lives anymore. Later in the same commercial the protagonist is featured moving a plane to form a ''heart-shape'', and you see the pilot and the co-pilot vomiting, now imagine if their would be a pregnant woman inside that aeroplane, she could give birth to a mentally and physically damaged baby, or worse get a miscarriage due to the aforementioned event. Imagine if you would sit on that plane and was on the toilet when the protagonist moves the plane, YIKE!

** The only way he could get out of this, figuratively, is ask someone to slice his hands off. This advert gets really depressing when you realize that's the best-case scenario.
