  10. Canada’s Lost Jaw anti-dip ads. It doesn’t get much more jaw-dropping than this campaign against chewing tobacco.
  11. Dodge’s dog-killing viral. A curious pooch gets mercilessly jolted and fried by a Dodge Nitro in this mean-spirited viral from Europe.
  12. EU’s nicotene cream. Also from Europe, this anti-smoking effort featured disgusting mock products, like a nicotene face cream for that perfect ashen look.
