In the spirit of the recent lampooning of the gross-out fests knows as the talking thumbs with heads and the woman carrying her own head in her arms...did anyone see THIS latest body dismemberment themed ad?
 
It's for Xbox 360, which you don't know until the very end of course.  All it shows is this zombified looking guy sitting in the dead center of his living room staring at his TV (quite appealing, wouldn't you say?)  And the camera pans around him and as you reach the back of his head you see that it is CARVED OUT and inside are the images of Xbox games.  Yuuuuucccckkkkk!!!  Dead It gave me chills, so far worse than the talking thumbs and the disembodied head.  Really gross, really disturbing imagery.
 
You know, sometimes I wonder if the same one advertising company has all these same accounts...

I haven't seen the Xobx ad or the talking thumbs ad, but that Xbox one sounds like it belongs in the icky-poo category!  Eww!

These carved-out head ads have to stop. How effective could they be anyway? They're so pointlessly dramatic and it took me months to even realize what they were advertising with them!

I say if you're in advertising, everything you make over 15k per year should go to school teachers. Maybe then in a couple decades we'll have a smarter group of advertisers, eh?
You owe the companies nothing. You don't owe them any courtesy. They have rearranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked your permission, don't even start asking for theirs.

Okay, I must be screwed up in the head, because I don't hate this one, it's nice and slow and it doesn't seem as abnormal compared to others, (no immediate shock value) maybe because I "get" it since what's pictured in the back is what she sees in their head as they play the game. You know when you picturing yourself as the character, while you're playing. I don't take it as being literally. It's a metaphor in a sorts.

I haaatte these ads! They're SO freaky, and stupid too! When they come on I want to scream as the camera rotates around to the back of the cave-head with all the crazy bs going on inside it. Don't they realize something is very wrong here. I wanted to post about these ads but I think I must have blocked them out.

I f**king hate these ads! They didn't really bother me until I saw the one featuring the girl with red hair. That has got to be the ugliest mother f**king woman I have ever seen in my life. Even worse than the Zyrtec snaggle-tooth woman.
