7 Strangest TV Commercials to Ever Exist ...

By Holly

I love everything weird and wonderful, and that is why I had so much fun finding the strangest TV commercials I possibly could! Some of them are creepy, some of them are funny, and some of them are just plain odd, but one thing is for sure - they’re all pretty strange. Sit back, relax and get ready to see the strangest TV commercials ever to be made.

1 Jammie Dodgers

Seriously, what IS that thing!? Topping this list of the world’s strangest TV commercials is one for the delicious, chewy British cookies, Jammie Dodgers. It’s a wonderful ballad played to us by none other than… a monkey? An elf? I’m not entirely sure, but there is something about this advertisement that is making me never want a Jammie Dodger again.

2 Little Baby’s Ice Cream

This commercial went viral a while ago, for obvious reasons. If you haven’t seen it already, prepare yourself. While it’s supposed to be an ad for baby’s ice cream, the the reality is far, far more terrifying. The voice, the demonic smile, the melted ice cream - it’s enough to put you off ice cream for life.

3 Panda Cheese

I could watch Panda Cheese advertisements all day! Straight from Egypt and called ‘Never Say No to Panda’, they are quirky, unique, funny and strange in all the right ways. If you’re after a giggle, this is definitely the ad for you. That panda is just so darn hilarious! If you like this one, just search for Panda Cheese on YouTube for a whole bunch more!

4 Old Spice Soap

This advertisement is only 17 seconds long, but it is 17 seconds of pure confusion. Is it an ad for soap? Or fruit? Or both? Old Spice are known for their funny commercials, with many of them going viral (who could forget the classic ‘I’m on a Horse’ ad?). They just keep coming up with glorious new ideas!

5 PlayStation 3

Just a quick warning: this ad is not for the faint-hearted. I’m not entirely sure what this advertisement is even supposed to mean or represent - all I know is that I don’t think I’ll be watching it again for a very long time. Dolls are scary at the best of times, but this one takes the cake. Talk about creepy!

6 DStv

Oh, I could watch this for hours! This commercial made me laugh from start to finish. It’s great to see such a clever ad, and that guy seriously has some moves! I love the idea of seeing what guys do when they think no one is watching. I don’t know how long it would have taken him to learn all the movies, but he looked like a natural. This ad is hilarious!

7 Science World

This is a great example of really clever advertising. It starts out quite normal, then quickly takes a very unexpected turn which really hooks the viewer in and makes them keep watching. This commercial is a great way to get a point across, and is as thought-provoking as it is strange.

TV commercials are there to sell something, so getting them as quirky, catchy and intriguing as possible is very important if brands want their message to stick in the viewer’s minds. These ads are so unique that they really get their point across. What is the strangest ad you’ve ever seen?
