Year unknown (but, post-9/11/01). Jenburkt is an Indian pharmaceutical company. Alternate headline: OSTEOARTHRITIS CAN BE TERROR-BLE. (sorry for the crappy copy, only one I have.)


2009 ad for the World Wildlife Fund in Brazil. It’s raining planes! There was, not surprisingly, major fallout when this ad hit the Internet. The WWF denied green-lighting the ad. But then, it came out that they apparently did approve it. Video version of the ad, which is even worse, below.
