While Sharks Aren't Really 'Horrifying', a World Without Them Sure Is
The World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) is known for its ads (which are sometimes pretty surreal and strange, like the Fish Head ad reproduced below for your viewing pleasure).

But I understand what they were going for with the ad, and why they needed to write that to make the concept work. Same thing with the bird of prey ad below.
