* Clairol "Herbal Essences" shampoo commercials showcase the woman using their product in the shower and screaming in delight. The "An organic experience," huh? Riiiight...experience" tagline doesn't help.



* Arby's put out one where a guy in bed, obviously waiting for... ''something'' to happen, gets his wife dressed as an Arby's worker entering with a plateful of Arby's food. To sexy music. The Arby's symbol over his head springs up with a ''boing'' sound effect and he says "Meeee ''likey''." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaHDN3_X4QY see for yourself]]
* This happens ''all the time'' in Canadian advertising, specifically when trying to advertise direct-to-consumer prescription drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Celebrex. Much like the European restrictions on talking about a car's maximum speed mentioned on another page, Canadian drug ads are allowed as long as the advertisement does not directly mention the purpose of the product. In response, many companies, Viagra maker Pfizer in particular, rely on SuspiciouslyAproposMusic, DoubleEntendre and DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything when they advertise up north. This has lead to brilliant Viagra ads like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFGpI8bfep0 a satisfied customer dancing down a street while "Good Morning, Good Morning" from Singin' in the Rain plays in the background]]; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExQKZKnk6rA the "International Language of Viagra" campaign]] where people speak in [[SpeakingSimlish Simlish]] about their re-energized sex lives thanks to Viagra; and another ad for Cialis (can't find a link) where a husband and wife are... a bit late joining in a standing ovation.

* Seriously, why do only women eat yogurt in commercials? Why can't men have some of that white creamy yummy stuff?
