** Want an added dose of NightmareFuel? Why not have ads that cover your whole screen, terrify you with a false statement of your Computer being infected, and then prevent you from leaving the page normally! Most of these sorts of ads are from rogue antivirus or Ransomware scams based out of India or another third world country, and you'd be surprised how many people fall for them.

* '''''[[VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft Hearthstone]]''''' has a very good track record with its ads, with many possessing the same sense of charm and fun of the game itself, but the same cannot be said for the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJvNl-2bSaU Take this Inside]] commercial. It features poor acting, nonsensical dialogue and presentation, a flimsy connection to ''Hearthstone'' itself, and an extremely forced tagline. Even the [[StylisticSuck deliberately crappy]] costumes come off as more lazy than charming, which is not helped by the fact that Blizzard has proven that they can make genuinely good costumes. It didn't take long for the fanbase to tear it apart for being an awkward piece of junk, and Blizzard themselves abandoned it fairly quickly.

* '''Toyota CH-R''' teamed up with Music/BadLipReading for some [[WereStillRelevantDammit millennial-targeted]] {{Gag Dub}}s of their commercials. "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uHoQDZrjWg Ghost School]]", in particular, received plenty of air time in Summer 2017. Unfortunately, the un-dubbed version of this commercial hasn't played as often, if it even exists. Without any concrete confirmation of BLR changing the audio, this ad loses an essential part of their videos' appeal -- the sight of famous people delivering dialogue and songs that the average viewers wouldn't expect. Instead, it just has a garishly made-up lady spouting complete nonsense, and leaving practically no time for Toyota to show off the car.

* '''Cottonelle''' has had some ads that were in questionable taste, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAIHkSko1iE this one]] with annoying kids talking about how Cottonelle makes them feel like "A white tiny kitten" or a "sparkling mermaid" TastesLikeDiabetes with a dash of NauseaFuel.

** The school bell at the start can also frighten people with autism, as it's a sudden sound that comes out of nowhere (not unlike a school fire alarm, which is often unpredictable).
