The Top Ten Worst Commercials of All Time

1 HeadOn. Apply Directly to the Forehead (HeadOn Miralus Healthcare)

This commercial is so annoying the head on apply directly to the forehead gets stuck in my head - trains45

Where's the K-Fee Commerical it is way worser then anything on this list everything tries to sell you something or tell you something and they fail at it but K-Fee just has a Zombie jump scare the audience like how is that gonna sell your product

This 2006 ad is notorious for being unbelievably annoying and repetitive. HeadOn is supposed to be some sort of product that can relieve headaches, but I'm pretty sure everyone started to get headaches from viewing this irritating ad. It features a woman placing the product at her forehead while the words "HeadOn! Apply directly to the forehead! " are repeated over and over again. This ad caught a lot of people's attention and started an Internet phenomenon, resulting in a lot of parodies.

"HeadOn! Apply directly to the forehead! HeadOn! Apply directly to the forehead! " God even after all these years it's still stuck in my head...

2 The Spongemonkeys (Quiznos)

I've never eaten at Quiznos but I honestly have a reason not to now that I know about these unholy monsters. They first appeared on the web singing a song called "We Like the Moon". Quiznos apparently thought the video was funny so (as ' morons) they decided to use the Spongemonkeys in their commercials. Thank god they were removed completely due to complaints from viewers.

This commerical is annoying even annoyed me on top 10 most annoying T.V. commercials and top ten worst commercials of all time, youtube videos, I only liked the lightning background part in this commercial - trains45

Wow! Those Spongemonkeys sure look ugly and terrifying! - PerfectImpulseX

Looks like someone did too many of certain drugs beforehand - SpectralOwl

3 Love's Baby Soft (Love Cosmetics)

This ad is wrong on so many levels. A 70s ad where it advertises Love's Baby Soft that's supposed to make you smell like a baby. If that wasn't odd enough, it also shows a full grown woman in baby clothes licking a lollipop seductively. What message where they trying to convey? That babies are sexy or something? I don't wanna know.

Now we also have images on this list. Thanks for adding them, Aragorn98. - Metal_Treasure

Oh my god why did you remind me of this commercial's existence?! - Phillip873

This commercial is just promoting pedophilia

4 Wunder Boner (Wunder Boner)

I remember first seeing this ad when it first aired. I get this is a fish deboner, but my god could they not have made a better NAME? Is ANYONE going to take a product called "Wonder Boner" seriously? Even as a kid I laughed at this.

It doesn't matter how good this ad is if no one can take that name seriously - kempokid

We can all agree Nostalgia Critic brought us here.

"My wife would love that" Something said in the ad - SpectralOwl

5 Puppy Monkey Baby (Mountain Dew)

I honestly thought this was funny

This was funny

That thing is weird in a bad way - blackflower

This was crappy - Phillip873

6 The baby (PlayStation 3)

Makes no sense - blackflower

This ad just scared people away from gaming.

This One Is Pure Cringe - AlphaQ

Actually cringe usually means uncomfortable. You could say that I was the most uncomfortable watching this ad - AlphaQ

7 Brad Pitt's Chanel No. 5 Commercial (Chanel)

He was the highest paid celebrity for an advert back in 2012 when it first aired. They made a mistake.

This commercial featuring actor Brad Pitt advertising the perfume Chanel No. 5 is known for being needlessly dramatic and over-the-top. Even the dialogue itself tries way too hard to sound poetic. This ad was so bad that it was parodied and mocked for years.

8 I Am Autism (Autism Speaks)

Consodering there are Autistics who are aware of the controversial aspects of this "advert"...

Why isn't this higher up on the list? It wrongly and offensively generalizes autism as a burden.

This commercial may be the worst one of all time. I could not finish it.

This commercial (directed by Alfonso Cuaron) is offensive towards Autistic people, and it sparked a lot of controverse. Not only that, most things in that video are untrue.

9's Racist Pandas (

Another Super Bowl commercial, and this one is highly racist. It shows two pandas with stereotypical Chinese accents. This ad was branded as offensive and racist and was quickly pulled from the air. SalesGenie stated that they never thought anyone would take offense cause the pandas themselves are Chinese. Yeah, like that's not stereotypical at all!

This One Is Extremely Racist - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

LeTs ChEcK oUt ThE bEaRs At ThE zOo

Offensive - blackflower

10 White People (Health Hotline)

I saw this commercial while on my elder ego on the summer I saw this same commercial but they are black this time and it still have the same voices that's how horrible the commercial is. - Kevinsidis

The animation in this knee brace commercial gives Clutch Cargo a run for its money. - PerfectImpulseX

God forbid Health Hotline becomes an animated studio then were talking levels of atrocity. - htoutlaws2012

I seen the white version of this commercial on television

Grandma, slow down, I can't keep up!

Maybe you could use a knee brace, too!

The Contenders

11 Life is short (Xbox)

Life is short. Play Fortnite on Xbox One then you go commit die.

My child is dead and Xbox killed him. - BlarchBlaces

Fun Fact: This ad was apparently so bad that it got banned in the UK. - PerfectImpulseX

Stay away from Fortnite and you'll live longer

12 Start the Car (Ikea)

Absolutely annoying.

This commercial is so annoying, when she yells, start the car! - trains45

13 Rick Perry's Strong (Rick Perry)

A political ad by Texas Govenor Rick Perry that was made during the time he was running for president in the 2012 Republican Party presidential primaries. It caused controversy for addressing gays in the military and religion in public schools due to Perry's disapproval of the former. As of June 2017, it's the 23rd most disliked video on YouTube and I can see why.

Most of the stuff in this video is untrue!

Republican does not approve! - EliHbk

14 Nationwide's Dead Boy Advert (Nationwide)

Dramatic and rather eerie to say the least

What the...

Depressing and eerie - blackflower

This commercial aired during the 2015 Super Bowl. Everyone knows those types of commercials are supposed to be fun, but this one wasn't as it features a child narrator who turns out to be dead, and it caused backlash among viewers. Nationwide even responded to the backlash, saying that it was supposed to start a conversation. If that conversation was about how Nationwide scared people, then yes. It succeeded.

15 The Kinder Surprise Humpty Dumpty (Ferrero SpA)

This dumb advert was as much as a confusing childhood memory as my 12th birthday was

Since these things are sold in Canada, I think it's safe to say that I (as an American) am more comfortable living in my own country, even if Trump is our president...

This Is So Awfully Cringe - AlphaQ

If nostalgiatards think that the 80s were all happiness and rainbows then they haven't seen this pure abomination of hell.

16 Giffing Out (Kmart)
17 (

I remember watching this ad when it first aired back in 2008. It's supposed to be some sort of program that helps your computer run faster, but my god couldn't they have picked a better name? Are you really gonna take a program called seriously? That name's so awful that I even remember laughing at how bad it was as a kid.

18 Ozzy Osbourne with Justin Bieber (Best Buy)

Oh my god

Seeing a good artist and a bad artist together already makes me cringe hard.

Why the hell do they look like two girls?

I kind of thing it was funny, actually.

19 Back to School (East Hills)

bOoTs aND pAnTs, aNd boOtS aNd pANTs - Catacorn

Funny pants and shoes

GeT yOuRsElF aN oUtFiT! - Hellohi

20 Creepy Little Sun (Sprite)

The kids look horrified... and I don't blame them.

Hide your children

I honestly find this funny

Its cute you uncultured swines

21 Protegent (Some Trojan Company in India)

I thought I was the only one aware of this atrocity's existence.

Nobody is gonna trust a Commercial about a Super Why ripoff character with Poorly animations skills.

22 Your New Favorite Show (Teen Titans Go)

This commercial let me know I was gonna hate the show - blackflower

23 1-877-Kars4Kids (Kars4Kids)

It makes me wanna cry.

Am I the only one who likes the jingle? - soulard

24 Shame on You (DOE Road Safety)
25 The Creepy Australian NES Commercial (Nintendo)

Pretty ironic that this Australian advert exists yet nowadays Australia is one of Nintendo's biggest selling points

An Australian NES advert where it shows several Nintendo characters (and some random guy) saying "YOU CANNOT BEAT US! " in very weird, creepy and distorted voices. This scared so many kids that Nintendo had to stop airing the commercial. I have no idea what Nintendo was thinking when they thought this ad was a good idea. If you really wanna sell games, don't try to scare people away from games with these types of ads.

Oh god, I remember seeing this commercial in a top ten video on youtube, everything is terrifying, the music, the characters, everything, especially the ending, (0.0)

Lakitu, what the hell happened to you? - SpectralOwl

26 Little Baby's Ice Cream

Oh god that scared me

I eat little babies, they make me feel young - Skullkid755

I wouldn’t go to that shop - blackflower

27 Scream Collector's BFF Remix Part 2 (West Edmonton Mall)

This commercial gets on my nervous the screaming drives me nuts, I had to mute this commercial if I was watching T.V. by myself, or listen to music my ipod when it came on, when I watching T.V. with a few people - trains45

28 The Ad with the Fat Guy (Yoshi's Island SNES)

Got this on GBA and the save data battery needs replacing.

Great! A commercial with fetishes.

He spits out GREEN GOOEY GORE! EWW - Maddox121

29 Perverted Bubbles (Shiny Suds)

What the hell is this?

Their faces made me laugh.
- TheDuttyGyal

This one is downright GROSS! Watch it for yourself and you'll see what I mean.

30 Dogs with human teeth (Dentastix)

Jesus Christ that looks mad creepy

I kind of like this ad actually. It wasn't scary at all.

Holy crap, it is so unitentinally freaky - SpectralOwl

31 Kame Sours (Japanese Candy Commercial)

Ok...I wouldn't want to be near whatever that thing is...

32 Laugh a Lot (Remco)

I think the doll is kinda cute - blackflower

That looks like a genderbent Chucky doll... I'm not joking.

What is that thing?!

33 Whole Wheat Waffles (Progressive)

This one is actually pretty funny to me

Box: Why the heck did I get these waffles again

34 Dabbing Lola (Nickelodeon)

This makes me hate this show even more

35 We Suck Your Eyeballs Out (Sega Saturn)

With commercials like this, it's no wonder the Saturn failed in the US and Europe... - PerfectImpulseX

I suck YOUR eyeballs out

36 The Gerber Life Grow-Up Plan (Gerber Life)
37 Playdoh Ultimate Swirl Ice Cream Maker Playset

I hate the playdoh song in this commercial it sucks - trains45

38 Creepy Happy Meal Boxes (McDonald's)

I remember when I first saw a McDonald's commercial featuring these little demons instead of Ron. I distinctly remember saying "WHAT THE HELL ARE THOSE THINGS?! " - Phillip873

They shouldn’t exist - blackflower

I'm not sure if there is one. I think the person who added this was thinking Happy the Happy Meal Box.

Have an elephant sit on that creepy box

39 I Shipped My Pants (Kmart)

If you think that's bad, then wait till you see the big gas deals - SpectralOwl

40 Breast Feeding (Resident Evil 4)

This Commercial gives me nightmares

With commercials like this, it's no wonder Resident Evil 4 sold badly in Europe...

41 Bears Can’t Keep Their Paws Off Toilet Paper (Charmin)

Ummm, this is one weird toilet paper commercial...

Bears please... Stop molesting the toilet paper...

42 Duffy on a Bike (Coca-Cola)
43 Pakistan McDonald's Commercials

Why aren't these commercials higher on the list? They have some of the worst CGI I've ever seen. - PerfectImpulseX

SONIC SKAT BORD - TeamRocket747

44 Stoner Sloth (New South Wales Department of Premier and Cabinet)
45 Ghost Car (K-Fee)

The only thing people know about K-Fee is this commercial

This Commercial doesn't sell you anything It just jump scares you how is that gonna rank up sales - pbiscuit

46 I'm the Cash Man (Oliver Jewellery)
47 Baby Secret (Mattel)

Hey how ya doing mama lemme whisper in yo ear

This is something I would’ve asked for as a kid - blackflower


48 Mighty No. 9 Masterclass (Deep Silver)

The narrator of that video makes fun of anime fans during the video.

49 Baby Wee - Wee (Famosa)
