Top 10 Most Deranged Video Game Advertisements (Videos Included!)

GameDynamo - "it has to stick in the minds of your viewers without causing them to seize up with terror whenever they recall your product. That's where a lot of video game marketers seem to reach a sticking point - which is to say, their ads go from "eye-catching and memorable" or "charmingly plithy" to "possibly designed by a serial killer on LSD." (Culture, Dante's Inferno, Nintendo, Pole Position, PS3, PSP, Retro, Sony Computer Entertainment)

It wasn't deranged, but I remember there was a great commercial for the N64 getting a price cut to $180. It was of a kid working at a fast food joint, and the second he got a paycheck for $180 he quit and bought the system. When I saw that commercial I literally got a job, worked for a weekend, and quit right after I could afford one. Good memories. :)
