Freak Week: A Cut Above

Last week on AdFreak, we posted one of the freakiest, most shocking ads we’ve seen this year. Most bizarre, perhaps, is that it’s a toy commercial. The spot promotes little alien-looking toy figurines made by a company called Alimana-and features a whole lot of blood, guts, nudity and sex. Done in the style of a fake movie trailer, it tells the story of a Japanese woman living in Mexico who falls in love with one of the toys after finding it in the garbage one day. Her friends laugh at her weird choice of mate, so naturally she murders each of them brutally, forcing one of them to eat his own intestines, before losing it completely and slicing off the top of her own head. And remember, this is meant to sell toys.
