Not subtle at all, that Pinguin ice-cream ad. ;)

Laughing hysterically at soup here.

Quivering in terror at the minced chicken here.

So in a communist ideology, advertising is meant to dissuade you from using money?

These are awesome-- stereotypically 80's German/Scandinavian presentation married to Soviet lameness.

The minced chicken frightened me with their hypnotic zombie-liek repetition of the brand name... Related, the hungarian ad thread the other day.

Shoot, I messed that link up a little. There, much better.

I like this one, because it looks like it could be a commercial for pee jars.

Lazy-ville, I'll spring for all the booze you want if you keep posting rapping Finnish beetles and Estonian minced chicken ads.

Great links. I think even Susan Sontag (RIP) would be left speechless.

Still a little intimidated by that minced chicken ad. Especially that meatwad all battered up and deep fried.

Great link.
