    Default OK -- the WORST Perfume Commercial Ever?

    This thread's purely for shits and giggles.

    I mean, we've already covered the BEST, so why not reach down into the dustbin for the pure D crapola? C'mon -- you know that there have been (and are!) some really bad stinkers out there in terms of frag ads! Let's all muck around in the schlock and kitsch and dreck and see what we can come up with, folks!

    My personal favorite of the worst of the worst? Easy -- the Jai Karate "karate chop" commercials of the late Sixties/early Seventies. Remember those? (Youngsters, shut up if you don't.) In each commercial, a guy would "karate kick" a woman. I mean, what WAS the message here? Of course it was supposed to be "This fragrance will knock women out," but instead it came across (of course) as "Wear this foul smelling potion and you'll turn into an abusive asshole who tries to look like the white version of Bruce Lee and kicks lots of women."

    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    That really annoying Egoiste (Chanel) one where all of the French women keep chanting in unison 'Egoiste!' and slamming their windows...

    WTF?

    It looks like Ellen DeGeneres trying to impersonate Marlo Thomas as "That Girl" -- all while dressed like Dina Merrill and having an epileptic fit.

    That said, the Happy commercials with Judy Garland singing "C'mon Get Happy" in the background were FABU -- some of my favorites, in fact. Too bad the magazine ad you brought to light sucked so bad in comparison.
