I posted this spot for Little Baby’s ice cream last year, but it deserves to be in this list.

Here’s the script:
“There’s good reason for my glistening skin.
And how I shine. And how my pores are so…clean, clear.
I eat Little Baby’s ice cream.
It keeps me young.
It keeps me…light on my feet.
I spring, from activity to activity.
I love my job. I love my life.
When you eat Little Baby’s ice cream
you’ll wink and nod and hug
and high five each other with great enthusiasm.
This is a special time.
Little Baby’s ice cream.
Ice cream…is a feeling.”

Two ads via Thailand for the Exact brand home pregnancy test that are seemingly telling women that using this device is just as accurate as sticking their heads all the way up their uteri.
But…if I was a woman, and if I could in fact stick my head that far up my hoo-ha, I’d also need flashlight microscopic eyes.

Commercial via Russia, specifically the city of Novokuznetsk, for some company named Vikam, a seller of work clothes and boots, Just watch it, and give me your artistic interpretation.
