    The 10 Sleaziest Ads Of 2012

    Sex sells? Please discuss.

    1. MegaFon

    Translation: "A high-quality network is vital on your business trips..."

    MegaFon is Russia's second largest mobile phone operator.

    This was one ad image from a multi-ad campaign.

    See the rest of them here.

    2. Quay toothpaste

    View this video on YouTube

    One of the most badly forced uses of sex in an ad I've ever seen.

    3. "Workaholics"

    Erect(ed) in Hollywood.

    If you're unaware, Workaholics is a Comedy Central show about "three recent college grads desperately trying to adjust to adulthood."

    That's supposed to be three stiffies.

    4. CougarLife

    CougarLife is a MILF dating site.

    If this was in a magazine, no big deal.

    But it was put up on Sunset in Hollywood.

    5. PETA

    It wouldn't be a complete raunchy ad list without a PETA entry.

    Joanna Krupa is a Real Housewives of Miami “star."

    6. "True Blood"

    Billboard via New Zealand.

    See a second ad from the campaign, featuring a sex doll, here.

    7. Watta bottled water

    Via Guatemala.

    Copy translation on bottle: “pure water yet with style”

    I don't get it either.

    Two more ads from the sleazy campaign here.

    8. Durex

    I mean, you expect condom ads to be somewhat dirty.

    But, maybe not quite this dirty.

    Thank France for that.

    Second spot from the campaign here.

    9. Toyota

    The hot ass belongs to 19-year-old Ukrainian-born model Stav Strashko.

    The spot ran only in Japan.

    10. Scion iQ

    View this video on YouTube

    The sleaziest car ad I've ever seen, which is saying something.
