** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oy4Vt_rQCRQ 2008]]: [[MirrorMonster Bloody Mary]] is shown preparing herself (including ''[[BloodLust using blood as her lipstick]]'') as a man begins to summon her. As he says "Bloody Mary" the third time...[[JumpScare you can imagine what happens from there]]. Along with that, an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfW7WY64yH8 unaired version]] of the commercial ends with Bloody Mary appearing behind a female victim and then [[NeckLift grabbing her by the throat and lifting her up]] as she desperately gasps for air.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUMx15GAspo This TV advert for a gossip magazine called ''Sneak'']] aired on UK television during children's spots in the late 90's, meaning it was mostly seen by kids. Right off the bat, the ad is unsettling; the music is strange and aggressive, the editing is jagged and it's set in a school; subverting a familiar environment into something cold and uncomfortable is an easy way to disturb young viewers. It almost feels like a horror movie at times, with the ad's main girl character seemingly desperate to tell someone something. Eventually, she reaches an assembly hall full of students and staff, where ''she explodes into pink gunge''. As another girl is wiping the pink slimy remains off her face in the bathroom, she sees the magazine that contained the information that caused the girl to explode. So, this magazine contains ''information so volatile it causes you to explode unless you tell someone?'' Who thought this was a good way to sell to kids?!

* This [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh9XwSgCigc condom commercial]]. It starts with an elderly man committing a bank robbery with a caption saying he is 73. We then see him threaten a mother and her daughter with a knife in his 40's, terrorize some people on his bike at the age of 18, cook a cat alive at age 4, and his mother suddenly die on the day he is born right as he is handed to her. After seeing all this, the commercial then shows the man's conception, where a woman laughs off having unprotected sex by remarking "[[TemptingFate What's the worse that could happen?]]" Needless to say, inferring that unplanned pregnancies can result in the mother not surviving the birth and the child growing up to be a psychopath is quite shocking.

* Monster, a job finding website, started a series of commercials starring, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a monster.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj6z89s3B9Q A huge, hairy monster whose face only consists of two glowing eyes,]] speaking ''directly to the viewer'' about how he can sense them. The tone usually shifts to be more humorous, and the monster ''is'' telling the customer about how it believes in their potential to find a job, but seeing this thing come on in the middle of the night can definitely be unnerving.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMDWwVCpDug The singing Truck ad]] from Safe Auto. It's pure Uncanny Valley. If a vehicle is going to sing, you expect the hood to open, not the bumper. You would spend years expecting the area between the bumper and the grill of vehicles to open up and bite you. And you sure don't expect the headlights to suddenly to look just like eyes and stare at you but be unable to turn, as if it can't see anything directly to its right or left. Then it openly mocks the other vehicles that break down for trying to move loads that are too heavy. It would be like watching a human break their leg and then someone else just sing about how funny that was and walk away.
