** According to a comment by StarDev94 on YouTube, there was a Degree Girl ad that had something like the ad, except one of the animatronics was replaced with a police officer.

* 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.

%%* * Print adverts for Risperda, an antipsychotic medication, feature pastel drawings of people having schizophrenic episodes. All effectively drive home the slogan's message that relapses "are a living nightmare".

The image depicts just that, as Bryn kneels in the rain -- hands buried in face -- as steam rises from his cowering body.

* Orkin had a series of commercials in which a creepy person repeatedly tries to get into suburban homes using a variety of flimsy stories, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TfYABolovE delivering a pizza]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8xXv1NOeXI his car broke down and he wants to call his brother]], etc. The creepy part is that the person is a six-foot tall termite/ant/cockroach. Not a guy in a cute costume, but a ''giant, talking, realistic-looking CG insect'' that sounds like a serial killer. One can hope that someone thought it would be funny, perhaps they wanted it to be just a little creepy. What they managed was "Giant alien insects are going to try and con their way into your homes to rape you and dangle your intestines from the ceiling". That would suffice better for an ad for a new shotgun.There's another one where a giant mosquito tries to get into a pool with a couple that were having a romantic moment. He drops his swimsuit and asks "are we...dipping skinny" before the Orkin guy shows up.

* There was an ad for Wrigley's in the UK that showed a man retching and spitting up a dog (literal "dog breath") after a night's heavy drinking. It was banned after more than 700 complaints that it had terrified both child and adult viewers alike. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLq5o228Nlk Obligatory Website/YouTube link]].

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f46kAiy5BPA This 2017 Hershey's ad]] shows a young woman eating a Hershey's bar on a park bench when a voiceover plays that informs her that if the Earth didn't have layers, she'd be drowning in magma. She only has some time to ask "Wait, what?" before the camera cuts to the entire area covered with lava, as she desperately tries to eat the chocolate and then screams in pain as she sinks into the lava. The comments on the video even call the ad out for being so randomly cruel.
