* The numerous dogs, cats, and other animals in the various animal charity commercials (the achingly sad music doesn't help). It's a toss-up as to which one makes me cry the most, but the "but I know that I am a good dog" line in the Pedigree commercial never fails to choke me up, not to mention make me wish I had a million dollars so that I could provide for all of them.

* The kid in that NSPCC ad. Seriously! Would YOU want to be brutally abused and burnt by your ''own father''?!

* The kid in that the NSPCC ad. Seriously! Would YOU want to be brutally abused "Cartoon Boy" advert, who is repeatedly thrown across the house, used as an ashtray, and burnt is thrown down the stairs by your ''own father''?!his own father.



* The Pepsi throwback commercial where it shows a mother fawning over her baby until the father brings the Pepsi throwback's and they start fawning over the dang sodas over their own child! Who's trying to get their attention by doing amazing things like dancing, playing guitar etc. And it just shows them paying more attention to the sodas than their own kid. "Poor baby!"
** This was actually for Pepsi Max; the parents were marveling at how a soda that "contains 60% less sugar" than regular soda would taste so good and some might consider it hilarious, especially since the commercial specifically engineers it to where you the viewer concentrates first and foremost on Super Baby.

** The ad, fittingly titled ''The Sad Bus'', was funded by the Polish Ministry of Interior. It advertises an online bus verification system which supposedly lets you check the technical info and condition of any bus in the country. [[spoiler:Most viewers failed to absorb this information, since they were still emotionally reeling from the punchline.]]

* Surprisingly played for laughs in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5urxHsv1Qc this]] Hey You Pikachu ad. You can't help but feel sorry for that poor dog who got fat, walks himself, and is starved for attention. Looking for love here!

** The rooster shows up in the end with her coworker, in the cubicle next to her. Lady, you're not getting away from him that easily!

* The stupid ad [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG1hdWb8yBM]] with a rooster crowing in the middle of the night, and the lady is annoyed, and makes it leave. THEN you see it wandering in the streets, looking pitiful, crowing mournfully at a few doors, and it's raining. After a few scenes, it wanders off into the cold darkness, and the woman is smiling in her sleep, pulling those f*cking covers over her stupid, dumb head. You're supposed to think: "Good, now that woman can sleep!" you end up thinking: "Poor rooster! That bitch just KICKED 'IM OUT!! He has nowehere to go!!"

* [[http://youtu.be/LP5WB6OXv1g This little gem]] features an old, run-down anthropomorphic red bus who is constantly shunned by his [[UnfortunateImplications modern white cousins]], forced to sleep by a garbage container instead of a spot on parking lot, written on ("DIRTBAG"), despised by adults and minors alike. He finally has enough of his bad luck and decides to commit suicide by hopping into a junkyard crusher. His change of heart just seconds before being crushed and being saved by a butterfly make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside... [[spoiler:And then the crusher operator flips the switch again, killing him. The narrator tells us to "show no mercy to obsolete and decrepit vehicles", while we are shown a metallic red cube circled by the aforementioned butterfly. Just to drive the point home - or perhaps to [[KickTheDog ridicule the dead protagonist further]] - the arrow which was stuck in the rear of the bus through the whole video is still sticking out of the cube.]]
