* A 2013 commercial for Allstate Insurance featured an ad-friendly couple whispering to each other about the concerns they have about their home and having it be protected. Then Mike Holmes (of "Holmes on Homes" fame) shows up right next to them in bed and whispers to them that they shouldn't be concerned because they're protected by Allstate. One of the couple asks if they're dreaming, then Dennis Haysbert turns on a light in their bedroom and says that no, they're in an Allstate commercial.

* Magnavox did a series of commercials in TheNineties with JohnCleese. In at least one of these, he points towards the bottom of the screen during his spiel and enunciates the word "Magnavox!" so the gag only works [[DontExplainTheJoke if you're watching the commercial on a Magnavox set, with its logo displayed right under the screen]].
