An ad for Belvedere vodka that was briefly on the internet before ad wizards finally, finally, finally realized that “the vodka of choice for psychotic frat-boys who laugh while they force-fuck girls in the mouth" may not be a sufficiently subtle way to brand the product.  
This was an actual thing that happened in the world, thanks to adult human beings. In order for this to have become a thing, there had to have been some Don Draper type, like, doing the speech from the Carousel:  ”Nostalgia - it’s delicate, but potent. This vodka isn’t a spaceship… it’s mouth-rape juice." What was that meeting where this got signed off on???  Horrible.
