1. Red Bull
This Jesus-debunking spot ran all over the world, including South Africa and Brazil. You wanna see some real complaints, Red Bull? Run it in Mississippi.
2. Libra tampons
Ha ha, you don’t have a vagina!
Lesson: Don’t fuck with transgender people.
3. New Idea magazine
Lesson: Don’t fuck with the Amish.
4. Pilot pens
This spot upset men, as it portrayed men as idiots.
I have no problem with this spot.
5. Cottonelle “Gripples”
