* A "Virtual Lara Croft" video was made to promote ''Tomb Raider III'' at the time of its release. It's just...wrong on so many levels. Lara's face is too wide, she gesticulates with her arms in a writhing fashion while saying mundane things, and most oddly her legs are completely glued together and to the floor through the entire 3 minutes. As for the content, she breaks the 4th wall in rather awkward ways, including the infamous "...give the player more...Satisfaction!"

* A Carmax ad intentionally invokes this trope for a point. In it, a man stops (presumably) at a strange gas station when, in a short while, a small group of [[TheFifties 1950s Style]] [[StepfordSmiler Stepford smiling]] gas station attendants start to wash and do the standard old "Full Service" to the car (checking oil, gas, air..etc..). The man becomes visibly unnerved by this and demands they stop but they don't. Now frightened, the man runs out and accidentally bumps into an equally odd milkman, who, while some of his milk bottles (also in fifties style) are smashed to the ground, can only react with "Oh Dear" in an equally Stepford-like fashion. Finally the man runs (possibly into the bowels of Hell by mistake) screaming away from the scene.

** Speaking of Burger King, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAwcj6d8XTQ Eat Like Snake]]. For those who would rather not watch this, it features a man slithering about in a snakelike fashion then unhinging his jaw to swallow a burger whole. It's..well..eating like a snake does. The music is worthy of a CrowningMomentOfFunny though.

* A commercial for Swedish Kavli had a baby who starts to dance after tasting their food. When the baby's body switches from real to CGI, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hScHvlTS6yA its arms are noticeably thinner!]] The dance moves only made it more freaky, which is probably why this didn't run for long.

* Audrey Hepburn has come back to life, and she's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=QAbEe4FTr6c hawking chocolate bars]] on behalf of Dove/Galaxy. She just seems so...unnatural. No, that's an understatement. Both the Audrey Hepburn actress and the car driver (the main focus of the commercial) look like literal living ''DOLLS''. Like one of those Japanese robots you see on TV that look human, but aren't!
* This [[http://vimeo.com/69868746 Johnny Walker commercial]] brought Bruce Lee back to life. The problem is, sometimes he looks like a video game character, sometimes he looks truly real, and sometimes... you can't tell what you're looking at. The worst parts probably are where he's in the shadows, giving him a "lurking and menacing" kind of vibe, and when he SUDDENLY JUMPS AT YOU TO TELL YOU THAT HAVE YOU POTENTIAL TO BE A "GAME CHANGER" at the end.
* The recent [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4eM-Y1ZOxE Charlize Theron Dior ad]] features Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe rendered in CGI. While the first two look mostly okay here, Marilyn...definitely crosses that line into the Uncanny Valley department. Her expressions and movements just don't really look all that natural.

** Worse yet: The dancing baby part is a direct ripoff from a scene in SonOfTheMask ''(you can even make out the baby's mouth still mouthing "Hello My Baby")''. A major criticism of that movie is how bizarre and frightening the baby's actions were, and this ad chose to emulate it.

* This UsefulNotes/McDonalds Happy Meal ad, called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys_B0mFY8D8 Suzi Van Zoom]], Suzi already looks creepy as hell, but take a look at the MONKEY monkey when you watch it. CREEPIEST. THING. EVER.Creepy, isn't it?



** Later on, people on social media became disturbed and creeped out when [=McDonalds=] revealed their newest mascot, [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BoBT9OvIAAE5T6O.jpg:large Happy.]] Something about mixing a red boxy body, Creator/{{Pixar}}-style eyes and too-real teeth just makes it ugly, and not even, like before, ugly cute.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzq-_9WGbt8 This ad for Spanish instant soup brand Gallina Blanca]] features a creepy dancing baby with a high-pitched voice. At least the ad realizes how freaky it is and has the dad ''mortified'' at the end. If you can read the comments, almost nobody likes the ad!

** Speaking of Burger King, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAwcj6d8XTQ oh god..EAT LIKE SNAKE]]. For those who don't want to be scarred for life...it features a man slithering about in a snakelike fashion then UNHINGING HIS JAW to swallow a burger whole. It's..well..eating like a snake does. And I have no idea why they thought that was a good idea and would make you want to eat the burgers. The music is worthy of a CrowningMomentOfFunny though.
