Top 10 Creepy Japanese TV Ads


Two of my most popular "TV ad posts" have been "Top 10 Uninentionally Creepy TV Ads" and "Top 10 Intentionally Creepy TV Ads." While searching for creepy videos, I quickly discovered that when it comes to creepy, Japanese television ads go beyond all bounds of reason.

Enjoy! And try not to cringe...
