Do Weird Body Parts in Quirky Commercials Really...
There are weird commercials, and then there are weird commercials that use body parts to attempt to sell product. Like these three strange ones below… makes you wonder what the ad pitch sessions were like when they came up with the idea. And to think some suit green lit them too.
