Bizarre Commercials, Volume 6

with 80 comments

Up to this point, we’ve illustrated ads produced with the intention to sell products. However, there are some television spots that are just out to make people aware (and, possibly, still sell sell products, but not in such an obvious manner. They’re called Public Service Announcements (PSAs) and here are a few of the more bizarre ones.

* G.I. Joe on Petting Strange Dogs

The National Child Safety Council created several animated PSAs to run at the end of episodes of the G.I. Joe cartoon series back in the 80s. This one cautions youngsters of the dangers of petting animals you don’t know. Admittedly, this is a fairly innocuous subject for badass military functionaries like G.I. Joe to bring up. Perhaps Mutt really wanted to say “you should never pet a strange dog because it’s loaded down with enough C-4 to blow your fuckin’ ass back to Beirut, numbnuts!”, but standards and practices thought it was a little harsh. Anyway, knowing is half the battle.

Bizarre Foreign Commercials Vol III

British Car Commercial

The scene is set. A shiny, cramped-looking car parked in an unassuming neighborhood beguiles a poor kitty-cat with its open sunroof. The cat’s natural curiosity compels it to stick its head inside when the glass closes on the cat’s neck, ultimately decapitating him. This gruesome ad tells me: “Buy a Sportka…if you want to find a cat’s head in your front seat one day!” I’m surprised the British Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals hasn’t waylayed this killer car off of the market. Seriously, they say serial killers start first with animals. Get this psychotic car off of Britain’s motorways! Read the rest of this entry »
