I thought this was going to be Rosemary's Baby.  It's Damien the internet savvy infant.

 

 

Gawdawful.


I was torn on this ad.  It's McDonald's Brazil so it's all about soccer.  Good concept, just misses on the execution.  And it's so long.  So very very long.

I think you might have been right the first time - that IS Satan's spawn, as far as I'm concerned.

I've always felt that the most effective form of birth control was being around bratty kids.

Heh heh. First saw that commercial several years ago, and ever since, "I want those sweeties!" has been something that is said at my house.

I adjusted the title to be more general to reflect that it's about all foreign commercials. Let me know if you have a clever subtitle, and I'll edit it in.

I just found this thread, and I was wondering if other countries air as many prescription ads as they do here in the U.S.

I think the US is the only country that has prescription ads. I could be wrong

Yeah, I was just wondering about that.  Perhaps someone outside the U.S. can answer.

In Australia, a workaround is (or was) for a drug manufacturer to air ads that basically described a problem, like obesity, and within the ad, claimed treatment might be available via contacting your GP. No drug could ever be promoted or suggested. This example described Xenical/Orlistat when it was prescription only (20 years ago). I can’t recall anything being promoted since.
