You've probably seen those advertisements that are so over the top you wonder, "Wait, what were they selling again?"
----

* [[http://youtu.be/dl0_9QHaqfg This]] UK ad from Think! Road safety is definitely narm territory. The narrator (Christopher Eccleston) keeps saying "Now you see him. Now you don't." While the driver of the car looks in the rear view mirror at a motorcyclist who keeps disappearing from view when the obvious impact happens Eccleston's narration tries to be dramatic "Now you see him! Now you see him!" As the camera slowly pans in on the unconscious or dead driver but fails.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr2gdPY-88w This glorious Ad.]] It confused everyone when it came out. It is an ad for a lawyer and has heavy metal, fire and scene where he hits a tombstone with a sledge. Priceless.
* [[http://youtu.be/Sg6IVUvVsAs Dark and lonely water]] was likely scary back in the day but hilarious now mostly because of the kid at the end "Euw 'orrible thing!"
* [[http://youtu.be/CPwtPaMa0vc This]] UK ad from safety on the move is a healthy mix of horror. A young woman crosses the road when she is mowed down by a speeding driver. She lands heavily on the tarmac blood streaming out of her nose and her ghost bends down over her own corpse declaring "You've killed me!" This is where it gets into the narm territory because she is generally trying to communicate with the driver despite knowing she is dead even though he obviously can't hear her.
* Edmonton-based radio station The Bounce, as of this writing, is airing TV ads which mashed together songs it plays. These were hilariously awful and mashed together "E.T.," "We R Who We R," "Born this Way," "Hello." etc. None of the choices fit together, and it was simply hilarious.
* The Wax Vac commercials, which advertise a vacuum that removes earwax from your ears. As soon as the scenes with the couple practicing ear candling and the guy screaming in pain when he was injured by a Q-tip come on, it's no longer possible to take the commercial seriously. (Though it's worse in that it dampens the seriousness of anything said by the experts that follow in the commercial. It's hard to take the words of a doctor seriously on the risks of using Q-tips when people are too distracted by the unintentionally humorous agony of a man from the result of a Q-tip. Unsurprisingly, the narm factor is made fun of by TheSoup.)
* There used to be a Canadian ad about getting tested for colon cancer. As serious as the topic was, it's hard to take it seriously when there are see-through bodies and one telling the other "Looks like you've got colon cancer." in a casual tone you would use when talking about the weather.
* Anna [[MeaningfulName Blue]], a CGI girl who sings a song called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tE31Wd7DF4 "So Alone"]] in a Jamster commercial. [[StockFootage The repeated mirror throwing]], mixed with the over-dramatic, stereotypical {{emo}} [[EmoTeen behavior]] makes the song hardly anything to take seriously.
** As if the emo appeal weren't cheesy enough, Jamster took the liberty of making a second song called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aun1lHyqwBg "Your Heart,"]] sung by a ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''-esque CGI vampire guy named Damien Dawn. Not only does it use the same StockFootage from "So Alone," but it also adds its own cheesy clips. Like Damien climbing up and singing on Anna's roof, and him jumping in the moonlight.
* The 2010 TV ad for Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's winter production ''Wintuk'' has this narration:
-->This is the magic of ''Wintuk''. This is the thrill of ''Wintuk''. This is the season of ''Wintuk''! ... Don't miss the final season of this wonderful, winterful show that ''The New York Times'' calls "a family-oriented holiday extravaganza"!
* In 2009, an [[CanadaEh Alberta]] based carpeting company called ''End of the Roll'' issued a series of ads with images of people buying carpets, laying down carpets, people smiling over their carpets and what not. The song in the background? "The Look" by Music/{{Roxette}}. Furthermore the ads having the over-excited narrator saying "Give your house... THE LOOK!!!!" followed by "Na na na na na, she's got the look..." just heightened the narm up to 11.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orl6vXPJAww "... a door... a table..." *klang* "... a FIST!"]]
** Another NSPCC advert at Christmas time tried to depict the horror of a Christmas ruined by an abusive father. Having a fight with a Christmas tree...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o50_ZlMnjqY This]] ad for a CD called "Cheers to You". The very fact that such a product exists (each of the CD's tracks consist of words of encouragement towards the listener) is depressing enough, but the "HOORAY FOR YOU!" at the end of the commercial really push it off the edge.
** Parodied by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsKHueDfT8U this]] video.
* Almost every American anti-drug PSA. Worth special mention is an abovetheinfluence.org ad in which a girl's dog tells her to stop smoking marijuana. Left unsaid was that if your dog is talking to you, then you have bigger problems than marijuana. Like the powerful hallucinogen you obviously took. [[MarijuanaIsLSD Marijuana does not work that way.]] While it wasn't their intent, it was a non-anthropomorphic dog who does nothing in the body of the ad but disapprove of marijuana -- and all the dialogue is ''written,'' not spoken. The whole thing is surreal.
** The ''FamilyGuy'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGkKeaggYVs parody]]
** Made worse when a live action version of this ad began airing.
*** The College Humor [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1815712 parody]]
** One late 1980s-early 1990s ad had an [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer Aggressive Drug Dealer]] that turned into a [[ScaledUp snake man]]. [[{{Anvilicious}} Subtlety]], thy name is ''not'' anti-drug ads. See it or read about it in loving detail [[http://www.x-entertainment.com/halloween/2004/september27/ here]].
** In 2007 and 2008, there was a very odd anti-drug PSA from abovetheinfluence.org in which a girl dumped her pot-smoking boyfriend for an Alien after it declined his joint. That was the message of the PSA: ''If you smoke pot, an alien will steal your girlfriend''. ''Tres'' Bizarre. That it was all drawn with magic marker probably didn't help. The most hilarious part was that the pot smoker sees an alien land, and what's the first thing he does? [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight He offers the alien a joint, of course]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKCYDrur_WI The guys smoking pot and circling through a drive-thru at a restaurant four times while a girl on a bicycle rides by]]; at the end, the producers pull a BolivianArmyEnding and imply she got hit. Memorably parodied on ''Series/ChappellesShow'':
---> [[http://www.cc.com/video-clips/kqppso/chappelle-s-show-marijuana-psa---uncensored "If you're a girl under the age of 12, and you're high on marijuana, don't ride your bike."]]
*** This was part of a larger campaign. Another ad culminated with one of two high kids accidentally shooting the other with his dad's loaded gun. Unfortunately, ''Politically Incorrect'' and ''[=TV=] Guide'' pointed out that maybe the ''real'' problem here was that an easily accessible loaded gun was in the house!
*** This ad was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0YtPi2QZSY parodied]] in ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle''.
** In one infamous anti-drug PSA, a solemn tone is set as we go into a darkened room with a shadowed figure sitting in the center. The lights come up and reveal... Pee-wee Herman. Not Paul Reubens, Pee-wee Herman. Who proceeds to pull out a vial of crack and solemnly tell us about the dangers of crack. ''In the Pee-Wee Herman voice, but with a dead serious tone.'' Words cannot describe how incredibly surreal this is, so [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agT2GVNQjao&feature=related we'll let the ad speak for itself]].
-->''"Deeyus... eeyus kreck."''
** In another anti-drug PSA, starring [[Music/BlackFlag Henry Rollins]], he compares the feeling of using meth or speed (they're closely related) to driving a powerful car very fast. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNMoZOPZ8dk&feature=related The car in the ad explodes.]]
---> "The difference? You can't rebuild a ''human heart.''"
*** His voice also cracks as he says this, adding to the narm.
** And here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC4KJ9Nd3EQ this PSA]] with some good ol' concrete diving.
** The WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|1987}}' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjcRQr-EzN4 foray into anti-drug PSAs]] (and, for added value, some nerd's foray into witty comebacks).
---> "I'm not a chicken, ''you're a turkey!''"
** The granddaddy was the fried egg [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nl5gBJGnaXs "This is your brain on drugs"]] spot, which was the endless subject of parody for sketch comics from the mid-80s well into the 1990s.
---> "This is your asshole before prison, this is your asshole after prison..."
---> "This is your brain on drugs with a side order of bacon."
*** Even more so the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyXFN4ocN_o&feature=related sequel]].
** This gem:
---> [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-Elr5K2Vuo "I LEARNED IT FROM WATCHING YOU!!"]]
*** Words cannot begin to describe the Narm dripping from every bit of this PSA.
*** ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' had a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv4Uh6r1i2g&feature=related funny parody]] of this ad.
*** Also ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' [[http://robotchicken.wikia.com/wiki/Watching_You]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAx1_CsJc1k "Now let's see if I can still make a straight line!"]] This ad is an exercise in attempted scare tactics.
*** Adding to the narm is the "whatever, as long as I get paid" expressions worn by the rest of the OR staff as well as the narrator, whose attempts to sound threatening can come off as a bit silly if you recognize him as the friendly sounding announcer for the Wendy's fast food chain in the 90s.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nm5p4oC0jzI "I looked down at my hot dog and there was a face on it."]]
* "I've fallen and I can't get up!" — originally supposed to be a shocking opening line in an ad for "Life Alert" ads depicting a helpless elderly woman who had fallen from her wheelchair, it quickly descended into farce. There were even T-shirts once. Life Alert now has the phrase trademarked, and it appears at the bottom of some ads.
** From a later commercial:
---> [[PunctuatedForEmphasis All. Senior. Citizens. Should. Have. Life Alert.]]
** Then there's the scene where an elderly woman is lying on the floor and trying to reach a phone that's sitting on a desk a few feet away -- sort of. She doesn't try to move towards it; she just reaches for it as if she believes that she can make her arm stretch the rest of the way.
** AAAAND there's [[http://youtu.be/J4JzxG0cnpg another one]], which tries to go for a dark and serious tone but ends up being somehow even narmier than the other examples; dark and moody music is heard while a camera pans through different rooms in the house and a woman can be heard yelping "HEEEELP!!! I've fallen... It hurts!!! Help me... HELP ME!" and the elderly woman can be seen at the foot of the stairs sobbing with a laundry basket dropped on her. There seems to be nobody home, making it even more hilarious. Then... MoodWhiplash time!
** Bonus narm points for the weird shift between blue and amber tints, and the fact that woman doesn't even try to look like she really took a fall; she's laying on her back in the ChalkOutline pose with her feet resting on the stairs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HuhV0Axg44 This]] video on the ''quite serious'' effects of drowsy driving has its impact (no pun intended) taken away at the end of the video...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHi2dxSf9hw A PSA]] about the example parents set for their kids had this unfortunate effect. The video showed children copying their parents (almost) exact actions right alongside them: the {{Narm}} takes over when some of the examples include a young girl smoking, a young boy throwing rocks at the neighbor's dog, a five-year old flipping off a driver, and a little boy helping batter his mother. The tagline "Children See, Children Do" didn't help.
* ''All'' of the commercials for Michael's Furniture in Los Angeles. You can tell that the producers of the commercial didn't bother with trying with costumes, advertising, and even special effects.
* The ad for the movie ''Film/OneMissedCall'' is unintentionally hilarious, with an ominous announcer voice saying, "When your call goes straight to voicemail, your world goes straight to '''Hell.'''" Bonus points for the victim saying "That's not my ringtone" in a terrified almost-whisper. With skill, it's possible to make nearly anything scary; but it seems cell phones are a rare exception.
* The ad for the movie The Darkest Hour, HolidayMode! Watching something unrelated, just seeing the super-serious "Survive (beat) The Holidays" and seeing the dog desintegrate, was just hilarious.
* Any [[PublicServiceAnnouncement PSA]] involving the ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. It makes it look like the Rangers are more afraid of fast food hamburgers than {{Omnicidal Maniac}}s. It's also a BrokenAesop; an ad had Jason and Xander (fully suited; sorry, no return of Austin St. John) at UsefulNotes/McDonalds, and that back in the 90's, they promoted fast food both in the show and for UsefulNotes/McDonalds.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnOeioy7qu8 My personal favorite is when Jason uses self control to not beat the shit of a guy who comes in looking for a fight.]] The lesson is use the least amount of force to solve a conflict. I find this one amusing not only because have they basically curb stomped mooks '''every episode''', but also because the kid in the video doing ti-chi with the yellow ranger is clearly looking at her breasts.
* A British PSA about seatbelts was dropped when market research showed that audiences found the ending (in which a pizza splatters against a car windscreen in imitation of a human body) funny rather than shocking.
* High school ScareEmStraight campaigns against drunk/distracted driving often veer into this:
* One mimicked a real drunk driving accident in varying levels of detail. A movie was also made so that students who didn't see the actual crash scene could still get the gist of it - unfortunately, it opened with a line from the actor playing the drunk driver about getting drunk on wine. People invariably laugh at the idea of a sixteen-year-old getting into a drunk driving accident because he ditched school to sip a bottle of Cabernet, and the opening line ruined the tenor of the movie. (The line was recorded as a joke along with the "real" dialog, but [[ThrowItIn the editors who worked on the video threw it in anyway]].)
** In another similar campaign at another school, the sophomore playing one of the injured passengers was screaming in a way that was definitely too over the top for someone who got his neck broken. And then the girl who played the victim that died was reading the "don't take me, I'm only seventeen" poem with her hand sticking out of a body bag.
** In another one for distracted driving, most of the Narm was provided by the principal and vice principals just standing near the scene, without a care in the world. No staff member pretending to be angry and shocked, they were just watching over like "yep, that's a problem".
** In a Madd drunk driving movie called "Smashed" the crash victims appear to be bleeding purple. Takes the tension and seriousness right out.
* Call Liberty Medical and ask them about your [[MemeticMutation DAHH'BEETUS]]. This message brought to you by Wilford Brimley (a.k.a. the "Quaker Oats" guy).
** "Ah haet prickin mah fingahs! With Liberty Meter, it's much less painful. ''And it even talks to me.''" This is ridiculous because testing one's blood sugar levels via any regular meter that's been introduced to the market since 2000 has become so refined that it requires one tiny little finger prick that you barely feel. The insulin jab hurts a heck of a lot more. Granted, the hospital meters still require the old fashioned ginormous pricks that would hurt, but...
** Or how about the poorly acted commercials for those "free" diabetic cookbooks? ("Free" is in quotation marks since there's always a catch to these things.) Poor Nicole Johnson tries her hardest, but puts across a creepy Sandra Lee kind of vibe, and the black woman sasses it up so much that it's almost worthy of giving the NAACP a conniption.
* Multiple House Alarm commercials that play out pretend scenarios where a burglar, rapist, etc. would be scared away by the alarm. These scenarios, however, were frequently farfetched and downright funny.
** One involves two burglars attempting to break into a house ''in the middle of the day'' by loudly breaking a window with a crowbar because they spotted overgrown grass and multiple newspapers in the porch. It turns out a single mother with her children were all in the laundry room (why they let the grass over-grow and didn't pick up the paper for days on end is a mystery), but they were gladly protected by the incredible threat of a loud noise.
** A more ridiculous scenario involves a single woman coming back to her (two-story, full-sized, middle-class) house from a date, only to have another man spy on them. Immediately after the man on a date left, the spying man runs up to the house and kicks open the door in the most obnoxious and over-dramatic way, setting off the alarm that baffles him and causes him to run away. The kicker? The woman gets a call from the alarm system technicians to ask what's wrong, and she says her ''ex-boyfriend'' knocked down the door.
** A third commercial of equal ridiculous nature involves a burglar breaking open a front door in the middle of the night in the most obnoxious and loudest way possible, then acts surprised before running away because of a house alarm. Narm moment indeed.
** There's also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKI4t5MFG1E "this"]] Broadview Security ad, where the man breaking in looks straight at the woman before punching through her window (which sets off the alarm), lets her run upstairs, and ''then'' runs away. It's even more narm-y and ridiculous because the commercial made it clear that he'd just been to this woman's house while she was having a party (probably casing the joint, as neither the woman nor her friends seemed to know who he was) - he could have easily gotten in with a lie about leaving his keys or wallet behind and then incapacitated the woman. Instead he seems to think that if he waits fifteen minutes she'll magically be gone from her own home ''and'' manages to miss the security keypad next to the front door.
* Oxfam's (a UK aid charity) current TV campaign, called "Be Humankind". Apparently, you can defeat poverty (depicted as a giant monster) with halitosis!
* London South Bank University has a poster campaign involving people with giant brains for heads.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYyA4ekZvi8 "It Only Takes a Second"]], a video campaign by the Federated Mutual Insurance Company, depicts unfortunate and painful accidents through dramatization. What makes this safety video so narmy is that many of the situations are poorly acted and sometimes unrealistic. The final scene of the video is a good example of this.
* "Our world is under constant attack". The start of a trailer for ''Mega Disasters'' on the History Channel's UK version.
* In [[TheEighties the 1980s]], video games were given some narmful adverts. For instance, every commercial for an UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} video game, ever.
** A ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'' ad had a [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} random blonde with a shirt with mega-shoulder pads]] and big hair, and a guy in a cheap Dracula costume with stiff, almost zombie-like poses and weird faces, standing in dry ice and tombstones that were obviously pieces of styrofoam painted gray.
* The ad for the horror film {{Mirrors}} had a scene at the end that features Kiefer Sutherland sitting in a car saying, "mirrors are everywhere." Then he looks at the rearview mirror, sees a monster in it, lets out the most narmy yells, and dramatically flinches away from the mirror. Ironically it's more or less correctly done as the entire film is like that, with the absolute peak coming from his vision of a burning woman in a large ceiling-to-floor mirror, and his then being afflicted with this condition himself. Nearly a minute is devoted to just him writhing on the floor yelling, "THE FIRE! IT BURNS! AAAAAHHHHHH!"
* "We just finished level three, and need to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjCo2I3ooK0 tighten up the graphics]] a little bit."
** Neatly put to bed in [[http://www.threepanelsoul.com/view.php?date=2008-06-04 this strip]].
*** [[http://www.chickensnack.com/comics/lr/index.php?strip_id=223 Alternate]]
** Put to death by Alta, who took that video down for copyright infringement.
* This driver's-ed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjoPZzG_oVk&feature=related video]]. It should speak for itself.
* Have you been injured at home or at work in the last 4 years and it wasn't your fault? You could claim money. This line is normally given after a poorly acted reconstruction, though it sometimes is used on screens which should have people suing the law firms for causing epilepsy.
* The protagonist yelling out "JUNNNIIOOOORRRR!" with added repetition and echoes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQVs71qabnY in the trailer for the film "Waist Deep"]] at about 0:40.
* There's an "Immigration rap" where two guys rap about how to become a U.S. citizen. The best part is probably "Are-you-a drug dee-al-er?" Who says '''[[ImplausibleDeniability yes]]'''!?
* In Canada, there was a series of well-made ads with relatively high production values about the hazards of unsafe driving. The impact (pun intended) came from people not expecting to ''see'' the impact; while we don't from inside the car, we do get to see a Mack truck make hash out of one half of the little midsize car. The following ads show the aftermath: physical therapy (for the girlfriend of the driver), a funeral (for the driver's little brother), a trial for the driver of the car... All chilling. Then someone noticed that [[HeyItsThatGuy the guy playing the driver is]] the VillainProtagonist from an older commercial about how to avoid having your car stolen, and people started asking if the car that got smashed was the same one he stole.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5bju8ybvSs& "Thank You Sarah Palin"]].
* The Magic Bullet To Go infomercial. While the first had the distinction of colourful, wacky characters congregating over a small machine after a party the previous night, it didn't have Dino. Dino makes his first appearance in the To Go infomercial, and the actor playing him is so bad that it makes every line top-grade Narm fuel. Just [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nmEqSD_MBQ check out]] the way he says "Whoa! That is magic." at 3:49.
* [[http://www.chick.com/catalog/books/vampire.asp This book ad]] from Creator/JackChick's homepage. Forget being ex-gay; this guy's an ex-Cthulhu-worshipping ex-vampire!
--> "I needed blood! While other sinful men craved women’s bodies, I was only interested in their necks or femoral arteries"
* [[http://www.quercustv.org/spip.php?article181 This anti-global-warming PSA from Quercus, a Portuguese environmentalist group]]. It starts out visually striking with the shots of desolate wastelands and melting ice-caps; then [[spoiler:the monkey hangs itself]], and it runs shrieking into Narm territory. The CGI lip-quivering should have been a warning. And that was with the original sad piano score. The second version backed by Peter Gabriel's "Don't Give Up" is even ''worse''.
* The Canadian "Home Front" domestic abuse [=PSAs.=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pj_DS4YXB1I "You stupid BITCH!"]] Or better yet, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZQLeeNo6Qw "She spilled my coffee!"]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-yGTrd4Z7I This old British PSA from the late 1970s]] that warned children not to play in electrical substations could either be considered hilariously Narmy or pure horror.
* A fairly well-known healthcare system in metropolitan Detroit has, as of late, become known not for the quality of their medical services, but for their [[https://www.beaumonthospitals.com/ horribly over-the-top commercials,]] which skip right past ScareEmStraight and into Narm territory. These gems come complete with dim lighting, silently frowning (or gowned and masked) medical staff, pounding ScareChord music and a deadly serious voiceover actor reading lines like "Choosing a hospital could be the most important decision you'll ever make" and "It's your heart/eyes/life/whatever... Do you have a Beaumont doctor?" The general effect of the commercials has been to generate an epidemic of spontaneous gluteal detachment secondary to laughter overdose in the viewing population. And then they promptly go get treated somewhere that doesn't sound like a VincentPrice film gone wrong.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wssfl22Hhp4 One anti-piracy advert]] (found at the end of UK ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'' {{DVD}}s and the beginning of certain British Disney tapes from the era) features a man with a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything suspicious]] resemblance to [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Joshamee Gibbs]] branding a pile of [=DVD=]s with an "X" brand and [[FridgeLogic somehow setting them on fire]], while the flame is reflected [[RedEyesTakeWarning in his eyes]] and he smiles evilly, giving him a demonic appearance. Remember, "Piracy funds organized crime!"

* National Organization for Marriage's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AzLrn5JVIo "Gathering Storm"]] ad, to some.
** They, without irony, say that they're forming a "rainbow coalition."

-->Feel free to call, otherwise I may become '''irritable'''!
* One TV spot for the second ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' film features Shia Lebeouf's character screaming "Bumblebee!!" in an anguished tone of voice -- which may send viewers not familiar with the ''character'' named Bumblebee into hysterics. But heck, even if you are, it's still funny -- especially if you have someone nearby who decides to snark, "Hey Shia, what's your favorite brand of tuna?" just before the line comes up.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijbovskICjk&feature=related Boys Beware]] , a horrible 1950s short film that equates gay people with pedophiles. "What Jimmy didn't know was that Ralph was sick. You see... RALPH WAS A HOMOSEXUAL." Delivered ''in a completely serious tone'', while [[SoundtrackDissonance inappropriately cheery music plays on the soundtrack]].
* There are a number of comedic advertisements in New Zealand that involve housewives doing strange and unusual things. As such, when an advert aired that had a women talking about healthy snack food, only to trip over a toy car and plummet into a glass-topped coffee table, many people burst out laughing... only to find out, as the camera panned away and the woman lay there sobbing amongst the glass shards, that it was meant to be a deadly-serious PSA about the dangers of leaving toys about on the floor. "Most accidents occur IN THE HOME." Because negotiating toy-covered floors whilst filming muesli bar commercials in their own home is something that every housewife [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u51OxZF1ltI has to deal with]].
* On the subject of New Zealanders. Drop the lines [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_Ii_IlmrFk "Ït's the same day David" and "Don't say sorry to me, say sorry to his kids"]] into casual conversation with one of them. Odds are they won't put on a grim face and talk about the evils of driving too fast.
** Alternatively, you can try: "Eat your peas, Molly! You ungrateful little bitch!"
* There's an old commercial that still plays late at night which encourages people to get tested for cancer. It would be admirable, but it features various elderly people who survived cancer -- not actors. They don't even ''try'' to emote; they just squint at the camera and read off cue cards. The worst? Just imagine the following quote read in a nasally monotone by the Church Lady from ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'':
-->"Norma Ray. Breast cancer. Three years. Survivor."
* The Australian advert for [[Creator/SciFiChannel Sci Fi Original]] ''Boa'' is quite bizarre. All it shows is a factory at night, a guy looking at something, and a big snake. The narmy narration is apparently the result of a schizophrenic howler monkey who'd been handed various hallucinogens and a broken-down typewriter from 1935.
-->Narrator: *ominously* If it had legs... maybe you could tie them together... and capture it. But it doesn't... so you can't. ''Boa''.
** Protip: Never argue against your own narration.
* The ad campaign for the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' [[ForTheEvulz Piraka]]. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZXBDIMBKm4 first ad]] is kinda cool, even with ([[MundaneMadeAwesome or because of]]) Thok blowing a presumably Antidermis bubble; but as soon as the [[HipHop painfully gangsta]] announcer opens his mouth, it's hilarious. And even more hilarious is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1CTPC02n0c Piraka Rap]]. The video isn't official, but the music is.
** The following year, they had a promotional mini-movie for the Toa Mahri setline, in which the characters actually ''talked''. Leading to the lines...
-->Hewkii, as a giant Gadunka appears: ''Holy Gadunka!''\\
Matoro, ramming a sea-craft into it: ''Eat '''this''', Gadunka!''
* War Amps, the Canadian amputee organization, had the infamous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GN9dANKe_Y PLAYSAFE]] commercials staring [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASTAR ASTAR]], a robot from Planet Danger (the planet with NoOSHACompliance). The "I can put my arm back on--you can't" line was repeatedly parodied in Canadian pop culture.
** There's also a [[http://www.waramps.ca/playsafe/astar.html 90's update]] which takes the first one and renders it in absolutely ''terrible'' CGI, along with rendering ASTAR's voice like he had developmental disabilities.
* Book commercials in general, or at least the ones that try to adapt the contents to live action. They're often plagued by cheesy narration over [[SpecialEffectFailure exceedingly low budget footage]] that make them look more like bargain-bin {{DVD}} movies than {{literature}}.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spL77iqRl7s This Orangina ad]]. Before, it was simply UsefulNotes/FurryFandom hijinks ramped UpToEleven. But this muscled puma looks silly.
** Look at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUES0gXmRCY this dominatrix panther.]]
* There's a commercial that talks about a medical service that will give you a supply of fresh, disposable catheters. The first commercial showed a woman whining that she had to ''boil'' and ''reuse'' her catheters. This is amusing until you are informed about the reality of the situation, when it becomes a FunnyAneurysmMoment. The second was for the same service and had an old lady and a handicapped man who delivered their lines in a ridiculously fake-sounding way.
* Some old douching commercials were so {{narm}} that they seem like parodies... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1cAYWi9E_0]]
* Any attempt by Creator/ABCFamily to use their slogan "A new kind of X". It gets silly. Absolutely everything has to be described this way by the network. How it began: When Creator/{{Disney}} wanted to rename the channel to "XYZ" to remarket it to a different audience, it discovered that the contracts with the cable companies required that the word "Family" stay in the channel name. Disney being Disney, it went ahead with remarketing Creator/ABCFamily; "A new kind of Family" was their way of explaining what they were doing (which would eventually be like Creator/TheWB of basic cable). It snowballed (snowcloned?) from there.
* A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw9EzdRLxb8 commercial]] for a Time-Life documentary of ThoseWackyNazis is hard to take seriously because the voice-over announcer is attempting a terrible Creator/DonLaFontaine impression.
** It doesn't help when the end-of-infomercial voiceover guy [[MoodWhiplash cheerfully pipes up]] to instruct you how to "order your copy of ''The Nazis''."
* Even good old [[TheAdvertisementServer Adbot]] isn't immune. Every so often, a truly groan-worthy ad will pop up on the left on the screen. Notable examples are ads like the "Are You A Vampire? Find Out Now!", "Which Naruto are you?", and, [[ErectionRejection of course,]] the {{Evony}} ads.
** Some advertisements consist only pictures of actual screenshots from media like MarioKart: Double Dash!! and [[PhineasAndFerb Phineas & Ferb]]... with nothing else added onto them!
* South Dakota used to have state-issued radio ads during the wintertime with dramatic, heart-pounding music that is obviously meant to be frightening and a man who sounds like Peter Thomas who drags out the words "DON'T CROWD THE PLOW" in a menacing way. It's utterly hilarious. Sadly, they've realized that and stopped playing it.
* Ads for the Creator/{{NBC}} show ''Series/TheEvent'' before it started airing. They all take the same form: "(insert random, standard plot driving event here) is not the Event. What is the Event?" with a line from the show saying "he's going to tell people about the Event." The whole thing is so overwrought and so generic that many viewers find it impossible to take seriously.
** Even better, they strung this series of commercials out so long that some viewers were actually sick of the show before it ever hit the air.
* There's a Nesquik advert, and the gist of it is 'kids only grow up once, enjoy it.' This would be quite touching if it weren't for the Nesquik bunny's voice. With it, the advert becomes ridiculous and seems to be trying too hard.
* Jamster has been running these advertisements for a "Ghost Camera" for your cellphone. It starts with a voiceover of a woman showing you pictures of various locales from her European trip. She gets increasing confused and edgy from the images of "ghosts" on each of her photos, but by the third photo she freaks out and lets out one of the most unconvincing screams of terror ever. Any iota of suspense built up to that point is completely ruined and turned into narm. To give you an idea, it sounded like the voice actor just flatly ''read'' the word "Aaaaaah" aloud from the script.
* A notorious anti-drunk driving [[PublicServiceAnnouncement PSA]] from circa 1980 with a hysterical housewife chasing after her husband shrieking, “Don't use the car! You'll kill yourself!” [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQJzlWFCZto And here it is!]]
* An ad slogan for Tyson Chicken: "It's what your family deserves."
** My family deserves a big, fat cock?
* The 24-hour news networks have been showing an ad by the oil companies featuring people on the street talking about taxing energy. Naturally, these people are all smarter about macroeconomics than real economists, even though all economics is inherently uncertain. And they are so not reading from teleprompters; it's just natural to talk like a fourth-grader reading from his reader (i.e., flat and pausing at awkward times).
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U219eUIZ7Qo Australian Grim Reaper AIDS PSA from the 1980s]]. Okay, maybe it was scary [[ValuesDissonance back in the day]], and in some aspects might still be; but the way people are suddenly falling over when getting hit by a bowling bowl is done in the most spastic, over-the-top way ever.
* There is a Canadian road/ambulance safety ad, which starts out with an ambulance with a patient in it and some idiot talking on his cell phone and not paying attention to the road. It's serious up until the point the guy talking on his phone crashes into the ambulance, and you see his face afterwards. It was supposed to come across as the guy feeling awful about what he did, but the DullSurprise on his face made it look more like he was thinking "Holy shit, that was AWESOME." Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be on Youtube yet.
* The commercials for the St. Louis and Kansas City-based Midwest Hemorrhoid Treatment Center have become a huge joke across the state of Missouri. You've got to wonder which poor saps were stuck with composing and singing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4fzO9whly8 the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRGw5uAJBHc jingle]]. Not to mention the whole "don't suffer in silence" thing, which is probably more appropriate for victims of domestic abuse or something along those lines, not hemorrhoids.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltA50HKyM14&feature=related This Kay commercial]] features some spectacularly BadBadActing, as well as the gem (no pun intended) that the cold piece of shiny metal "captures the comfort found in each other's arms."
** Strangely, the way the woman reacted to the lightning, she acted as though she'd never seen anything brighter than a full moon, or louder than a vacuum. Not to mention - a line that is supposed to be delivered as a sweet platitude comes off more like a threat.
* [[UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland The Belfast City Council]] embarked on an anti-litter campaign which features pop art characters expressing [[FelonyMisdemeanor horror and disgust]] any time their companion litters. This results in ads like a picture of a crying girl thinking, "''All I did was drop my chewing gum on the ground... [[DisproportionateRetribution and now he won't speak to me!]]''"
** And, speaking of [[UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland Our Wee Country]], lest we forget the mind-meltingly narmy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L84dSVDg5XU "Walking" PSAs]] that helpfully extolled the benefit of doing just that while singing about it. "Give yourself MORE ENERGY and BETTER SLEEP!"
* The trailers for the 2011 ''Film/GreenLantern'' movie. Dramatic music, a dying alien dramatically intoning, "Become one of us... become... a Green Lantern!" If you're not familiar with the comics, that's a pretty bizarre request to make in a dramatic scene.
* This early '90s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWPpWYRyFvk road safety campaign]] from the UK starts off dramatically but rapidly dissolves into Narm: "This child needs help! Anybody!"
* The otherwise pretty spooky [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaaEkJcdrP8 trailer]] for the film ''The Skeptic'' ends with an intense montage of quick clips, including two shots of people... goofily tumbling down the stairs. Obviously they're supposed to be violently falling, but both actors (especially the woman) just drew their arms in and sort of ''roll'' in an un-alarming fashion.
** [[JumpScare Jump scares]] featured in the trailer quickly become predictable when you notice that they repeatedly use a stock ScareChord which quickly loses its scare factor.
* There is a commercial for Montgomery's Furniture (a local furniture store in South Dakota) that basically consists of music that sounds like it should be featured in an action movie... accompanied by random shots of furniture. Yes, the commercial is trying to make furniture seem [[BadAss "Edgy" and "Awesome"]], but the commercial is just too hilariously bad for it to work.
* One of the trailers for the 2001 remake of ''Film/Thir13enGhosts'' was also quite Narm-ish. It didn't give us any hints or things to look forward to about the movie; [[CaptainObvious it just listed why it was rated R]]. Not to mention the things it was rated R for were [[SocietyMarchesOn pretty much standard fare by that point in film history]]. You mean to say there's an R-rated movie that has violence, nudity, and [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome colorful metaphors]]? Great idea, ''Thir13en Ghosts'', [[OlderThanTheyThink nobody's ever thought of that before]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jubP3t27IQ This]] ad for a furniture shop definitely qualifies, although there's horror as well; the man's awkward, stilted dialogue, his subtle threat about your credit and the fact that he talks to mannequins are quite alarming.
* With T-Mobile's ads about its 4G network came an ad in which a man impatiently pounds on his cellphone for the "slow 3G buffering" occurring on his screen, unable to wait a few seconds.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QRBcHIIsXc This]] message from PETA about animal testing. That it's from PETA should already convince you that it's {{narm}}, but just in case you need further convincing, bear in mind that it's readily apparent that this is... probably an attempt at being scary, but their wording in trying to make it seem that way just comes across as laughable. [[note]]Though how well it works might depend on how much you agree with its message; if you go in with the impression that this is going to be ridiculous, that might help you better notice the amusing aspects of it, but still.[[/note]] The following line is especially hilarious if you say it in a dramatic voice:
-->''They get hurt. Bad. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment BAD.]] The kind of burning, needing, fear-producing, cage-circling, screaming, SCREAMING, screaming hurt we shudder to even imagine.''
** The "Testing... 1... 2... 3" part was hilarious too.
* [[http://www.redshirttreatment.com/IHA25/index.html You Deserve The Redshirt Treatment]]. [[{{Redshirt}} Not the sort of thing you want to hear at a hospital]].
* A PSA encouraging abstinence bore the tagline "Sex lasts a moment. Being a father lasts your whole life". This was changed from the earlier tagline of "Sex lasts a minute", likely because the only reasonable response would be "Not if you're doing it right".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvqdiyLqFZU This commercial]] shows that you probably won't see the arresting officer coming, especially if you're wasted. Well, it shows that to a serious-minded person. To anyone else, it shows: "Oh my lord! Invisible ninja cops!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slJyhOEo-SY ''The Finishing Line'']], a railway safety film, was regarded as very scary back when it first aired in the 1970s. However, by today's standards, the bad acting, lines such as "You're like a jellian" (According to Guru Larry, a jellian is "A mop-headed child from the seventies that gives pointless strategic advice") and the CaptainObviousAesop (Don't hold sporting events on railway lines) propel it firmly into Narm territory.
* Have you ever read the "Urban Legend" on the side of Paul Newman Lemonade cartons? Try to do it without cringing.
* Northern Irish presenter Julian Simmons has a tendency to deliver [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hbdDvfZbeo&feature=related hilarious]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ktiJUUBLPo&feature=related ridiculous]] introductions to the popular soap opera CoronationStreet which cross into Narm territory. [[NarmCharm He's pretty much the single reason why UTV still uses continuity announcements]].
-->''[[CatchPhrase But now on the UTV...]]''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GkuRhZa3qZ0 This]] Anti drug commercial, featuring what seems to be a human, female version of Humpty Dumpty.
* "The Devil Inside" looks like a horrific movie, except for one part in the trailer where [[spoiler: the possessed mother motions for her daughter to come closer. After a few seconds of awkward silence, she lets out a hilarious scream]].
** The TV spot shows the rather {{Adorkable}} Father Ben letting out a hilariously girly scream as well, and his facial expression doesn't help matters either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=QU9C4ENHEFo This]] Montana Meth project video. In spades.
* Subaru's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA3ml2EkJ3o "Keepsake" ad]]. There was also another advertisement from Subaru where a hip young man delivered a forlorn narration as he put his old Subaru out to pasture... Literally.
* If you ever took swimming lessons through the American Red Cross water safety program sometime during the last two decades, chances are you were shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5fptgS14OQ "Longfellow’s Whale Tales".]] You didn’t want to laugh, but you did anyway.
* The TV spots for the 2012 action movie ''Film/{{Chronicle}}'' show a character being hit by a flying bus. It's hard not to laugh at it.
** Likewise for the scene where the kid sits cross-legged, staring into the camera with a dead serious facial expression, clenching a fist, crushing a car.
*** And the "B-BLING, B-BLING!" at the beginning.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Xd2ceHDd-g A trailer]] for the horror film ''House at the End of the Street'' uses a "rewind" gimmick a la the ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'' trailer, to show how fine and dandy everything started out before the horror stuff happened. A couple of shots -- such as a teenager backflipping out of a swimming pool and a child flying ''back onto'' a swing -- merit at least a chuckle.
* The anti-tobacco ads running in the US qualify as {{Narm}}, if only because the ill effects shown are rarely connected to smoking, and are much too {{Anvilicious}} to be taken seriously.
* The Above the Influence commercials, showing "testimony" from people who have refused to do drugs (or people who have stopped). The whole thing is goofy, but what really seals it is the footage of the group's Facebook page, which is littered with self-righteous comments (presumably from people who have never been around or offered drugs). It ends with a close-up of several posts, the best (funniest) being: "WE RISE ABOVE. TOGETHER" (caps included in original post).
* The commercial for James Patterson's new novel, ''I, Michael Bennett,'' is pretty funny. It starts with a little girl asking if her dad would take a bullet for her, then cuts to a little boy asking a similar question, followed by a man awkwardly leaning toward the camera and saying, "I will," as slowly and dramatically as possible.
* The British NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) ran a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PKaFwYIBbg television advertisement]] that showed a DrillSergeantNasty ordering a woman to cook for him and read him stories, in imitation of a young child. It's trying to make a point that having a child can be really demanding. But the fact that a ''US Marine'' is shouting things like "Pay me attention!" and "Read me this story!" kind of ruins the effect.
* UsefulNotes/{{Singapore}}'s "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jxU89x78ac Mentos National Night]]", urging Singaporeans to have more kids. Yes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI7TsHKaksA This]] advertisement for the Accu-Check Nano blood testing machine. The song sounds like something meant for advertising a Franchise/MyLittlePony doll, not a diabetes-management device.
* The Narcotics Task Force of the New York City Housing Authority would like you to know that "smokin' crack... is like... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKRSgxQxVAo puttin' a gun in your mouth]]... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tAfUybCBXo and pullin']]... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dM_NGlBHDU the trigger!]]
* The "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVicCD8FmMs Think Before You Speak]]" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrJrw5ZZfRU&feature=related commercials.]] Sure, the intention is good (telling people to stop using the word "gay" as an insult) but the way they go about it is pretty damn funny. Having Music/HilaryDuff pop up and say "You shouldn't say that!" probably isn't the best way to go about it. Neither is the passive aggressive "Knock it off!" at the end.
* An old commercial for debt recovery featured low-quality footage and BadBadActing. It opens with a woman with some papers in her hands and others strewn in front of her and saying, in the blandest, most monotonous voice possible, "Bills, bills, I don't know how we're gonna pay them," then pursing her lips and shaking her head. It was very hard to take the rest of the commercial seriously after watching that.
* The actors in this advert for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB2L1Q0hjdU The Money Shop]], especially the petrol guy:
-->'''[[LargeHam Ugh! AAAAAAAAAARGH!!!]]'''
* This TotallyRadical [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI3rO3PbYOo ad]] from TheEighties, which features two nerds rapping about ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda''.
-->Yeah, go Link yeah, [[AccidentalInnuendo get some]]!
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-qBkWerZDg second ad]] has no painful rapping, but makes up for it by being certifiably nuts, featuring a spastic young man in what appears to be an abandoned loony bin hallucinating monsters from the game and calling out for Zelda repeatedly. ''Pe-pe-Peahats!'' For bonus geek points, horror-loving boils and ghouls [[RetroactiveRecognition may recognize the kid in the ad]] as none other than John Kassir, the voice of [[TalesFromTheCrypt the Crypt Keeper]] himself!
* An RSA ad trying to show the dangers of ignoring the stoplight on a railroad crossing featured a man performing all sorts of near misses such as getting on his crowded train just as it starts to the tune of happy music and then he crosses a railway crossing on a moped only to get hit by a train while the music is still playing and getting sent flying into the air along with the moped.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzlDg1XKC2Y A DIY book commercial]] at one point runs down pest species you can repel with tips from the book. It inexplicably decides to show this by pasting up a picture of a screaming child's face with wasps photoshopped onto him.
* In the mid-90's, ''Duncan Yo-Yo'' (like just about ''everybody'' marketing to kids at the time) tried to make their commercials [[TotallyRadical hipper and more modern]] by depicting a stereotypical "cool kid" enthusiastically playing with a yo-yo, while comparing him to a HollywoodNerd sitting at home playing... [[PacManFever a Sega Genesis with Atari 2600 sound effects]]. As if that (both the whole comparison and its execution) wasn't crazy enough, the ad ended with this classic line: "You want speed, action and excitement? GET A YO-YO!!!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ohr0bZ_WWFQ
* Another 90's toy commercial: A board game called ''Ask Zendar''. During the ad, one of the players asks the plastic toy in the center "Am I going to the prom with a geek?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWJDAOlBO_A
* [[http://youtu.be/0tteHhYh9rU This British road safety ad]], where a man appears to be using a dead kid as a draught excluder.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gccVehom30g This TCF bank commercial]] with polka dancers and a singer on an accordion. The narm should speak for itself.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T549VoLca_Q This]] "End The R-Word" PSA is no doubt well-meaning, but its comparison to other slurs comes across as amusing when the site it's posted on is one where all those other slurs are popular as well.
* Everyone knows you're not supposed to use your phone during a movie, making [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgU2ue37hgY this video's]] annoying and condescending tone all the more grating. [[WhatAnIdiot Apparently, there's no technology in movie theaters... or something]]. And this plays before ''every movie at a Cinemark theater.'' If you go to a place where the local movie theater is a Cinemark, expect anyone who goes to the movies regularly to have this memorized by heart.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8OJhJiyaNQ This really goofy MPAA rating PSA]] depicts the ratings as different beings (i.e.: G is a teddy bear, PG-13 is a superhero, R is a soldier and NC-17 is a {{Fanservice}}-ish lady) getting dropped off from a bus at certain places.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdHYIdyVMIk This]] NPD (German neonazi party) ad from 2012. Content: Three industrious German dwarfs find some gold during digging, "Aah" and "Ooh" about it - but then some sleazy AmbiguouslyJewish (or foreign) guy enters the stage and takes the poor dwarves' gold away, just like that. Fortunately, the NPD guy on a horse ''(yes)'' enters the scene to kick his ass (offscreen) and bring justice.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85q4gJLyfZo This]] UK Iceland advert circa Christmas 2009. The whole thing qualifies.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dM_NGlBHDU This Anti Crack PSA]] is part of Jeffrey Witotsky's mid to late 1980s series of anti drug spots. While the others in the series were obviously going for cheesy cinematics, this one simply has a spokesperson who appears to be imitating Christopher Walken's intense style of delivery. Very badly.
* Christine O'Donnell's infamous "I'm You" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek3OUay2uWw political ad]]. Even if you know the reason behind the statement, it's hard to take anything she says seriously when she starts off by informing the viewer "I'm not a witch." SaturdayNightLive summed it up well in their [[http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ebc_1288639889 parody of the ad]]:
-->''Isn't that what the people of Delaware deserve? A candidate who promises first and foremost that she's not a witch? That's the kind of candidate this country hasn't had since [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem_witch_trials 1692]].''
* An anti-smoking PSA that states that "cigarettes are bullies". The statement itself is pretty ridiculous because you know [[CaptainObvious cigarettes aren't animate.]] But the PSA doesn't stop there. It features a itty bitty schlubby looking man that is meant to be an anthropomorphization of a cigarette that seems to have 10 times his own strength. The PSA ends with a narration spoken in a deathly serious voice that doesn't seem to fit because the ridiculousness of the whole commercial. One can't help but feel like the people who came up with this ad thought that it was clever but it's all really silly.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=il3ZcBGh20c This]] trailer for VideoGame/RPGMaker VX has some truly awful lines such as "Wow! Check this out! Pixel art is awesome!"
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDASxk5kiDw Principal Wilson has an epic breakdown over]] [[FelonyMisdemeanor someone parking in his spot]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nUTlECYQIo This]] PSA for Micheal Bloomberg's gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety. We have a crazed armed ex-husband banging on his ex-wife's door as she is on the phone with the police explaining that he is outside and has a restraining order. As she continues to speak he finally breaks in the door and a brief fight ensues. Finally he grabs her son, points the gun in her face, and a gunshot is heard as the screen fades to black. Even though this ad is being used to push Bloomberg's gun control agenda, gun rights advocates and Conservatives were quick to notice the exact situation in the ad actually pushes the message as to why women should be armed and trained how to use a firearm--so they can survive in such a situation!
