Bad advertisements and weird advertisements

Advertising is a medium I'm interested in and here I'd like to collect odd advertisements and advertising that is just plain bad. For other examples of good advertising see my creative advertisements and creative guerrilla marketing threads .

And I'll get us started with these very weird Sega ads that ran in Viz comic book in the 1990's. I'm not personally familiar with the comic book but I hear it was aimed at adults (or college students) and that to run ads in Viz meant running ads that they designed. Either way, these ads are just plain weird.

@Robert Gentel,
This is another odd SEGA ad. I bet it wouldn't go over too well today:

@Debra Law,
Cool link Debra

I now know why they're called 'junkies'

Part of the reason I am sometimes quite proud of my country:

Advertising feminine hygiene products Australian style

Wow - that's nothing like the way it's marketed down under. I wonder if it's even the same product.

These two go together. The first one doesn't like embedding.
