Here are contenders 9 through 12.
9. France’s hourglass AIDS spot. Human bodies pile up inside a giant hourglass in this chilling AIDS awareness commercial from France.
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.
Vote below for the freakiest of the four. The top vote-getter at 11 p.m. Monday night advances to Round 2.
UPDATE: The missing-jaw campaign attempts to talk trash, wins this round easily. See the voting results here.
