Advertisings Cruelty to Kids Strange, But Funny too

It's cruel to be kind, sorta, in these two ads featuring a few cute unsuspecting children. What they don't know is just how unkind the world of advertising is, in all its shocking brutality, where fellow children and parents spring unexpected horrors on them.

The "Screature" ad on the right is almost Monty Pythonesque in its treatment of a little girl victimized by a boy's toy dinosaur. I love the tag line; "Are his master, or prey."

The Instant Alarm ad pretty much incapacitates one kid on the kitchen floor. He never knew what hit him.
