* Horror thriller film ''The Snowman'' may have generated some hype with its trailer, only to shoot itself in the foot with [[http://redcarpetcrash.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/snow-poster.jpg quite possibly one of the worst movie posters of all time]]. It has a juvenile vibe with simplistic handwriting over a doodle of a snowman whose expression is best described as "disappointed ".

* Remember that [[NightmareFuel horrific]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtJqw--DGl8 Northern Irish drink-driving PIF]] in which a car smashes through a garden fence and crushes a young child? In 2014, the DOE decided to ramp this concept UpToEleven with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MD8BkIgp9Fo this ad]], in which a speeding driver loses control of his car and rips through a hedge, ''killing an entire class of schoolchildren''. It's too over the top to take seriously, and, in contrast to the earlier one, [[BloodlessCarnage there is no blood or injury detail]]. ''None''. The ad was meant to convey the fact that 28 children (roughly the size of a primary school class) have been killed by speeding drivers since 2000. But surely there are better ways of illustrating that?

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUFPGYVhmSs The Story Of Lucy]] is a three-minute long prestige ad featuring soft soulful music, as we watch a montage of moments in the life of a man who has a daughter. We see her born, watch as she grows up, gets married, and has a child of her own. Throughout this touching and heart-string tugging commercial, you can't help but wonder what it is they're selling. Life insurance? Cars? Cell phones? It's not very clear. Then, at the end of it all, as the father looks through a pane of nursery-ward glass at his new granddaughter, we see the message, "What's between us, connects us"... then it cuts to a logo for Windex.

* There was once an ad, although I can't recall the exact time it was on, featuring several homeless people around a bonfire, lamenting what they'd lost, with one noting how he lost everything because of his son gambling on the Internet. While problems with gambling can be serious and damaging, the ad ends with the kid apologizing and the dad telling him "go to your box!" which makes it impossible to take seriously.
