  See all votes here.

  Here’s the 64-team bracket.

  Here are contenders 1 through 4.
  1. Orville Deadenbacher. The popcorn king died in 1995, but returned from the dead to his company’s commercials this year, thanks to digital technology.
  2. Severed-arms DVD promo. A Dutch agency promoted Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof on DVD by scattering severed arms on sidewalks in Amsterdam.
  3. NZ Yellow Pages’ tarantula hands. Disembodied hands scurried around like spiders in this Yellow Pages commercial out of New Zealand.
  4. France’s bestial anti-smoking ads. When you smoke, you smell like a goat. And you may kiss like one, too, according to this French anti-smoking campaign.
  Vote below for the freakiest of the four. The top vote-getter at 11 p.m. Monday night advances to Round 2.
  UPDATE: Orville Deadenbacher creaks into Round 2. See the voting results here.
