…and the majority of them are PSAs. Because the easiest way to get through to people is to scare them into submission.
Adfreak reviews the year in advertising and compiles a list of the 30 most bizarre and creepy ads they have come across. The majority of the ads don’t push any products, but attempt to terrify one into thinking/caring about topics that they may not necessarily be bothered about. There are a couple of these rather freakish ads after the jump.
Ancilla Tilla Strips
In this PSA from the Netherlands, Playboy Playmate Ancilla Tilia’s striptease is rudely interrupted by a fisherman whose idea of stripping is entirely different.
In this spot for Dentyne gum, a Thai man has been “eating elsewhere” and his wife is suspicious. Nothing reassures a spouse more than fresh, minty breath.
This Canadian PSA is about Parkinson’s disease. When you fight against yourself, you lose.
Keira Knightley is in an abusive relationship and this PSA serves to raise more awareness of domestic violence.
In this PSA from the United Kingdom, it’s raining polar bears. This is not a good thing.
