    Any commercials with certain people playing musical instruments ever scare you?

          How did the voice sound like? SpongeBob's "running out of air" voice? You know, when he yells "I need it!" LOL.

              it's so good for me to eat.

              Good poem.

                        The Jell-O commercial where a kid eats Jell-O while a man goes crazy. Does anyone else remember that one?

                              Mostly PSA's used to scare the crap out of me. This one was just the creepiest thing I ever heard in my life.

                                There was one that I think was for cystic fibrosis and I only saw it once all I remember is a boy struggling to breathe and he deflates like a balloon. Creepiest commercial I ever saw I wish I could find it.

                                This one too:

                                  What commercials used to scare you when you were younger?

                                  One that I can think of off the top of my head is this "Nick is kids" commercial. It featured a heartbeat and the "splat" nick logo pumping. I can't find it on retrojunk but I'm sure it's there.

                                  What commercials used to scare you?

                                    I'm afraid I'm a little older than some of you, but when I was a little kid (in the early 60's) there was a public service announcement for the Cerebral Palsy fund that scared the $#!+ out of me. It started with a marionette dancing, and a hand holding a huge pair of scissors would repeatedly enter the picture and cut the puppet's strings one-by-one as the announcer described the symptoms of cerebral palsy; until at the end of the commercial, the puppet fell...dead. Anyone else remember this 60-second instant nightmare?

                                      The drug free america commercials always scared me, and the one with the drug dealer who becomes a snake man.

                                      The Dianetics commercials never scared me, but I spent years wondering what those commercials were advertising exactly.
