THE FREAKIEST AD OF 2008: Saatchi’s comic, gory spot for ‘Evil Dead the Musical’

In the end, it wasn’t even close. This gory/comic spot for Evil Dead the Musical, by Saatchi & Saatchi in Toronto, has bloodily sauntered off with the title of AdFreak’s Freakiest Ad of 2008, after collecting 49 percent of the vote in the four-way final. Converse’s came in second, with 22 percent. The Dutch Socialist Party and Doritos rounded out the top four, with 18 percent and 11 percent, respectively. The Evil Dead spot is a worthy successor to the Dexter viral that won our contest last year. So, congrats to Saatchi. To see all of this year’s 32 freaky finalists, click here.
