The Worst Halloween Ad You Will Ever See


Here is, perhaps, the dumbest Halloween-themed ad you will ever see in your life. It's cheesy, illogical and, well, just stupid. Yes, it follows the tried and true approach of people helping others when they really shouldn't but this effort is so lame you can't even get to the notion it's supposed to be funny.

Created by aftermarket additive brand Gold Eagle in partnership with crowdsource video company, Poptent, the spot, Chainsaw Psycho, aims to spoof the 1974 cult classic, Chainsaw Massacre. But all we get is further proof crowdsourcing always results in lame-ass, unprofessional work that should never see the light of day.

We are told in developing the ad's concept, Poptent community member, Matthew Ninaber and his team at High Rise Studio in Ontario aimed to "convey the idea of a ticking time-bomb" and the "need to get a motor started ASAP."

But, as any normal viewer will conclude after watching this painful, gouge-your eyes-out piece of tripe, the only thing that needs to happen ASAP is for the idiotic doofus in this commercial to get up and run for his life...and for these high Rise Studio guys to never again create another disaster like this in their lives.
