The good folks over at Adweek, who already ranked the 10 Best Commercials of 2011, have compiled a separate ranking for the Freakiest commercials, a list that absolutely would not be complete without at least one of those fantastically creepy Skittles commercials. I encourage you to check out the entire list of 30 Freakiest Commercials at Adweek, but after the jump, we tease you with the website’s ten freakiest, which include the most erotic Popsicle eating sequence you’ve ever seen, a Sausage Flan commercial that will give you nightmares and, of course, Jean Claude Van Damme drinking Coors Light and walking like a penguin. Why not?

Ubisoft Rocksmith’s ‘Guitar Baby’: I don’t care for talking CGI babies, like in the E*Trade commercials, but CGI babies playing guitar? Sign me up.

Association of Finnish Lawyers’ ‘Popsicle’ (NSFW-ish): Wow. I mean, Wow. Good God. This is about as close as you can get to porn without removing any clothes or revealing any naughty bits.

Skittles ‘Park’: Nobody does WTF better than the Skittles ad firm. Taste the rainbow. I said, TASTE THE RAINBOW, B*TCH.

Ayuden ‘Sausage Flan’: If you’re going to make a phallic commercial, why must you make the phallus so unappealing? This will put women off of sex for a month.

Coors Light ‘Van Damme’: There’s nothing freakier than Van Damme on top of a snow mountain walking like a man penguin, but am I alone is being a little disappointed that someone as AWESOME as Van Damme is drinking Coors Light?

Suntory ‘Ricky’
I don’t know what’s going on here, or even what’s being advertised, but I feel REALLY HAPPY. And a little drunk.

MCAC ‘Rhian Touches Herself’. Do not watch this commercial. Trust me. DO NOT WATCH IT. Again, it’s fascinatingly erotic (and slightly NSFW) right up until the moment you throw up in your cubicle.

Deep Silver ‘Dead Island Trailer’: This one was featured in the 10 Best Ads of 2011, and it was actually my favorite of that bunch.

David Lynch Coffee ‘Barbie’: A four minute conversation between David Lynch and a Barbie’s head. It’s exactly what you’d expect from David Lynch, which is to say: It’s not for everyone.

Help Remedies ‘Dream Scenario’: Ummm. There are a series of the dream scenario here, and … ummm. I don’t … ummm … yeah … ummm … yikes.
