10 Commericals that are Exercises in WTF


You know those ads you see that make you stop and go “what the hell were they on when they made that?” Yeah, those are these ads. The ads that you think you could throw wet bread slices at notecards on a wall, and make an ad about whatever they stick to.

Here are ten of the most bizarre I could find, send me any more if you’ve got ’em.

1) Starburst<3’s Spirited Fellows


We need more people like this in the world. I’m serious.

2) Fresh Air Gum <3’s Ice Farting Squirrels


It’s like some bizzaro world version of Smokey the Bear. Do NOT try to fart out your campfires. It won’t go well.

3) DirectTV<3’s Supervillains


This is actually pretty awesome, but I found myself constantly wondering how many copyright laws they were breaking.

4) Skittles <3’s Singing Rabbits


I had a rapping duck once that I gave away because it was racist. Called me a “quacker.” HAH.

5) McDonalds <3’s Hot Mascot Variants


What the hell McDonalds? Don’t take something I used to be terrified of as a child and make it hot! This is going to completely change the direction of my therapy sessions.

6) SpikeTV<3’s Pancakes Far Too Much


Spike, I understand you really wish to be the epitome of all things manly, but come on, OBVIOUSLY you should have gone with bacon here.

7) Nissan <3’s David Lynch


Yes, he directed this weird ass commericial complete with disembodied blue lips spouting nonsense phrases. I’m almost sure this has to be a parody of a prentious “artsy” ad.

8 ) Ikea <3’s Manslaughter


Alright, did NOT see that coming.

9) Sylvania Light Bulbs <3’s Oh, It’s just Thailand, OK


Ghosts, transvestites, and light bulbs all in one place. God, I need to go to Thailand.

10) Mentos <3’s the ’90s


I paused it when he gets that look on his face and made it my desktop background.

Post more if you’ve got them.
