Yeah. If it wasn't for the 100% sound overkill through my headphones, (think I'm deaf now) this would have been tame. btw, predictable script? Nani nani nani!

THAT qualifies as the "World's Scariest Advert" ??

I must be missing something there.

have to admit I jumped out of my chair from that one.   and I was expecting it. also have to admit at least part of that was from the sound.  the sound of the  body hitting the glass reminded of a free flying Bumper that hit my car on the hood a couple years back at 60 + mph . instant split second flashback.

Watched it with the sound off and ... nothing. The scariest commercials to me are the pharma ads that list all the side effects of their medicines.

It's creepy for a, commercial.
Say yer watching the Simpsons with grandma , and they comes on during a break.
I think they're alluding to her being slit mouth woman too. She's a very dire Japanese folk lore....
She kills everyone.

Miss me?

Sorry, scary advert for tyres....no! Now had they made it as a tourist ad for Fukushima, then it would be scary.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Truth in advertising, questionable. But, success in advertising is hardly measured by truth, rather by suggestion ... look at  the number of hits!

Meh...same ol' same ol'...but it did give me the expected fright, not enough to jump but enough to appreciate it and its take-off of the old ones   :)
