Nightmares? Check! Psychotherapy? Check!

I've been holding on to this commercial disaster for a while, and I've been debating for a while whether or not to post it at all. It is -- in all seriousness -- the creepiest, most disturbing, and most graphic commercial I've ever seen. It seriously gave me nightmares after I watched it.

With that kind of build up, it may not be that shocking to you at all. But as you watch it, keep in mind that I had no idea what was coming when I first viewed it... much like the millions of Canadians who first saw it during a nationally-televised Saturday afternoon hockey game. That's right... this nightmare-inducing monstrosity aired during an afternoon broadcast of Canada's national pastime, when thousands -- potentially millions -- of blissfully unsuspecting Canadian children were also watching.

I'm betting family therapists in Canada saw an unexpected spike in business after this disaster aired.
