* The "[[http://youtu.be/SkGTtBlW458 This]] [[http://youtu.be/QxsQgk0Z2bc is]] [[http://youtu.be/RsHXMxoCXeU the]] money you could be saving with Geico" ads. They feature a stack of bills with unblinking googly eyes, just staring into the camera. The song playing in the background, "Somebody's Watching Me", turns the ad from UncannyValley into ParanoiaFuel, although it is mild compared to some of the items on this list, given that it straddles the line between creepy and [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute]].

** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6VW2aeR2FY this spoof]] of children's cereal commercials, the CGI mascot looks rather horrifying at the end, when he removes his CoolShades, glares at the viewer in closeup, and asks, "Why haven't you called Geico?"

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBz-b_l59Lc 2004]]: A man is shown walking into a completely white room, when arms and faces begin to start coming out of the wall. In terror, he flees out the door, only to find himself right back in the same room. This time, he sees a body bag get up and begin to unzip itself. In vain, he tries to run again but ends up in the room once more; where [[BloodyHorror the walls now begin to bleed]] while he watches in horror.

* There's [[http://youtu.be/VBXTwUmJoHw these]] advertisements for a cleaning product known as SKOE 10X. Both of their commercials are essentially animal women going to the bathroom on the floor, and none of it's censored. Add in the fact that it's usually shown at late night, and you're bound to confuse it for horrifying scat porn that made it on TV somehow.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlHw_O3NpWw This commercial]] for Austrailia's Bluetongue Brewery Beer features a Japanese businessman getting the [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice "Full Whale Experience"]] at a sushi bar. It was made using money donated by the Sea Shephards, a group of eco-pirates (of ''Series/WhaleWars'' fame) who disrupt Japanese whaling activities... that, or Bluetongue really hates the Japanese.
