Weird Canadian Commercials

In an effort to prove to Nethie that not all Canadian commercials are horrifically realistic scenes of brutal workplace accidents, I am pleased to present some of the weirdest commercials to grace our northern TV screens.

These are all part of the same campaign of ads for Mac's Milk's Frosters drinks. Basically, it's convenience store advertising some new flavours (not flavors) of slush drinks that they had just come out with. At least, I think that's what they were advertising. The whole WTF line of ad more or less just gave us insight into how deanged ad-men really are.

Yeah, I think Hate Crime is a good place to start. It really says nothing about the product in question, but speaks volumes about the sanity (or lack thereof) of those invoved in creating the commercial.

Texas woman gives birth to twins, each with a different father

Apparently, this is medically possible. I'm not really sure what to say about this, so I'll let the following video do the talking.

The Most Evil Device Ever?

Have you commited a crime lately? Are you on the run from the law? Be glad you don't have this micro-chip implanted. A Saudi Arabian scientist has filed for a patent for a "killer" tracking device, which would be used to trace fugitives from justice, terrorists, illegal immigrants, criminals, political opponents and more. The chip acts like a DPS tracker, but with the added bonus of being able to inject a deadly poison into anyone that becomes a security risk. The Story.

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 21st

Your Daily Loser - During an argument over Italian music, the wife poured beer on the husband's laptop, so he went postal... and during the fight, he fell on her. Six weeks later the wife died from chest injuries sustained when the husband fell on her, so he was arrested and tried for causing bodily injuries by negligence. The Story.

Jury Duty - The forty year-old son, who was getting drunk with his mom at 2:00 AM, decided he didn't like her attitude, so he whipped out the Taser and let her have it. The Story and the Mugshot.

Seriously, can you blame them?

A New Zealand couple asked their bank for a $NZ10,000 overdraft. The bank deposited $NZ10,000,000 into their account. Oops.
Now it's at least possible that this couple considered doing the right (or at least, legal) thing, by returning the money to the bank. But ultimately, they chose to seize the day - and the money - instead, and are now on the run, being pursued by NZ police and Interpol. (,27753,25515799-462,00.html)

Scary PSA

Good Lord! Is this an outtake from a horror film, or a public-service announcement?
