What’s up with the zombie in the Pristiq commercial and her creepy wind-up doll?

Depression is NOT funny! HOWEVER, these commercials for Pristiq, a depression medication, are creepy and weird (and kind of funny). And the wind-up doll? Why is she sitting there watching the doll walk? Who thought this was a good idea? A possible Pristiq side effect: hallucinating that objects will come to life. Well, at least she’s not depressed, I guess.

I think this Pristiq lady just needs some Orajel, and she will be happy. Don’t you think so? See one of many Orajel commercials featuring overly, insanely excited people here:
