I got this from Occasional Superheroine, as an example of what simply has to be the worst ad placement I've ever seen. It's absolutely stunningly bad. So bad it comes out the other end and becomes funny, assuming you can really appreciate black humour. And it's not just the visuals, but also the song. It all combines for one deeply surreal experience.
This is a clip from the episode of Battlestar Galactica that aired on Friday. There's a fairly massive spoiler in this clip, just in case you're a fan of the show and haven't seen it yet. And what happens in this scene is pretty disturbing. I remember yelling "What the fuck?!" at the screen last week. But once you get past that and see the commercial, well, you'll either laugh or be deeply horrified.
I laughed, but I'm a sick bastard, along with being a townie one....
