* During the Great Storm of 1781, Advertising/JohnJameson lost a barrel of his beloved whiskey. He said goodbye to the crew, and went in after it. In hindsight, [[SeaMonster that probably wasn't a good idea.]] Weeks later, a funeral was held. All of Ireland was in attendance, [[AttendingYourOwnFuneral including John Jameson.]]

Added DiffLines:

** To most people, the Hawk of Achill was just a legend, except for those who knew better. When it took the mason's daughter, it was tragic. When it took a barrel of John Jameson's whiskey, [[SeriousBusiness well, that was another matter.]] But Jameson was generous, and the hawk, greedy. Very greedy. And in the end, the pursuit of the whiskey would prove foolish... for the Hawk of Achill.

* Recently, Trolli has tried to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this with their advertisements for their candies. Major YMMV as to whether it works or not.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JspHqoegTkc The Toyota NZ Hilux ad]], where the protagonist was driving on his Hilux, offroad, over this mountain, through a valley, in the middle of a cyclone, which caused a flood, which triggered a landslide, before he finally got to this volcano... He carries on for almost a minute, [[spoiler: until you find out [[CassandraTruth he was telling the truth]].]]

* More a case of Eccentric Awesome, but we simply can't omit [[Advertising/CompareTheMeerkat Aleksandr Orlov]].
* Don't forget the recent Dairy Queen commercials. They don't just have rainbows, they have rainbows on fire. Those aren't just bunnies, they're classic shaving bunnies. They don't just have a guitar, they have a guitar that makes dolphin sounds. He's not just wearing pants, he's wearing magic turnaround pants. He doesn't just blow bubbles, he blows bubbles with kittens in them. That isn't just a falcon, it's a rock and roll falcon. He's not just standing over here, he's doing lunges over there too. He's not just fencing, he's fencing his future self who is a much better fencer. They don't just have fluffy clouds, they have fluffy clouds that go "YEAH!" He's not just water skiing, he's water ski-boxing.
** They don't just have a pinata, they have a pinata with Mary Lou Retton inside.

* He can speak French... in Russian. If he were to pat you on the back, you would put it on your resumé. If he were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the strong urge to thank him. Even his enemies list him as their emergency contact. He is... TheMostInterestingManInTheWorld.
