* One ad for MTV's Scream in Youtube had scenes of the show combined with the visuals of [[NightmareFace a disturbing grey face screaming]] all set to someone whispering [[ParanoiaFuel ''Click Skip and Die'' over and over again.]] So many people complained {[[https://twitter.com/reallyoutube there was even a twitter account about it!]]) that MTV probably pulled it and it appears that the ad is lost.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r7yKaDxGvc Back in the 1980's, there was a Japanese commercial for Kleenex.]] This ad featured a woman in a white dress and an infant dressed as a creature from Japanese mythology in a red room that was empty except for some Kleenex. The ad had [[EarWorm very unfitting, but catchy music. (It's A Fine Day, by Miss Jane.]] The ads received complaints from Japanese viewers, who said the imagery and the song (which some claimed sounded similar to a German curse) were disturbing, and were subsequently pulled off the air.

* In the 1980's, Kleenex ran an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r7yKaDxGvc ad campaign]] in Japan that featured a young woman playing with a kid who was dressed to resemble a Japanese ogre in a red room that was empty except for some Kleenex. The ads were accompanied with Miss Jane's "It's A Fine Day." The ads received complaints from Japanese viewers, who said the imagery and the song (which some claimed sounded similar to a German curse) were disturbing, and were subsequently pulled off the air. You know your ads are scary when people start making UrbanLegends out of them.
** There was also [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_H9N0vctk0 another ad]] that aired around the same time, that also tried to be charming with the little girl dressed as an angel while blowing around tissues in slo-mo, but the dark shed setting accompanied with the creepy Gregorian chanting suggests the opposite. It's practically a DadaAd.

* Back in the 1980's, there was a Japanese commercial for Kleenex. This ad featured a woman in a white dress and an infant dressed as a creature from Japanese mythology. The ad had [[EarWorm very unfitting, but catchy music.]]
** Due to the ad's disturbing nature, there has been talk that the commercial was cursed and that everyone involved in the production of the ad either died or suffered terribly. For example, many say that the infant was killed by the paint used on it for the ad, and depending on the version, the woman either killed herself in a mental asylum or gave birth to a demon baby.
** There was also a rumor that if the ad was played at midnight, it would become very distorted and would be even more creepy.

* We all know Count Chocula, right? The adorable, cartoony, chocolate cereal version of Count Dracula? Well, in 1991, someone decides to bring him to [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Bou0Lrk8-C4 live-action]]. It went just well as [[UncannyValley anyone could]] [[NightmareFace have expected]] (The [[OurMonstersAreWeird chocolate monster]] doesn't help either.)



** That very same company also put out two other commercials that are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0_fVzTJO-8 equally]] [[AcidTripDimension terrifying]], if [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJaLU0w5Do4 not]] [[EyesDoNotBelongThere more]].

* Unfortunately, TVTropes has had its own scary ad. It's for "California's Summer of Fun". It first shows a boy or a girl with a normal smiling face. But then, the face fades into a very creepy stretched face.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e4Pk6Z1-yg This]] cinema advert for Philips Irons features fire fighters rescuing a baby from a house fire. Rated U, cause kids wouldn't be scared of this. Right?

And it ends with them bragging about their irons turning off in 30 seconds after being used, which at that point, you would probably never use an iron again after seeing all that. Rated U, cause kids wouldn't be scared of this. Right?

* There was a needlessly scary advert for Hooch Lemon, with a man sleeping in the most uncanny cliff-side house imaginable. A mosquito has a sip of the drink and [[ParanoiaFuel cuts a hole through the apartment's window]]. The man wakes up, gets bitten by the mosquito [[JumpScare and screams at the top of his lungs]]. There was another version of the ad where his wife wakes up with an even more earsplitting shriek.
