Like the name of the post? I couldn’t help myself.

Have you ever been watching the TV on some local channel and come across some awful home-made ads that just make you cringe? Almost like a car wreck, they’re so bad you just can’t look away? Here are a few examples of some from the Toronto area. Oddly enough, they are all for jewellery buyers.

I couldn’t find a YouTube link for this one, but it’s for Harold the Jewellery Buyer. Just click here to view it. Quite possibly the worst acting job ever.

So have you seen these before? Got any more awful ads you’d like to add to the wall of shame? Let’s discuss below

    Hahah Erik that is a very interesting point. I wonder if that was their strategy all along… I call it the William Hung strategy:

    Be as bad as possible and people will notice.

    That is way too funny. Got to love the mullets on all of them. Way to stick with the theme too.
