* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ3rndjje30 This ad for MLB 12: The Show]] depicts the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series and all of Chicago celebrating, even the Pope himself, before eventually cutting to a sobbing Cubs fan in his room with a PS3 controller, indicating it was part of the game. On November 3rd, 2016, that day would become a reality.

* Continuing on with this trend. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4On14MnZEs0 This]] ad is one of many to utilize [[WesternAnimation/TheKwickyKoalaShow Kwicky Koala]] as a punching bag. Of course now days we live in the time where Kwicky Koala and other short lived Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons can all sell well and fine on dvd, while dvds for more prominent Creator/CartoonNetwork shows like "WestnerAnimation/DextersLaboratory" are still stalled due to them not selling so hot. Who's pounding the bed in frustration now CN? Certainly not Kwicky Koala's fans.

* An Italian toy company named Giochi Preziosi has a collectibles division named [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCimxHPea5Vu0dGI4evOVWdA Preziosi Collection]]. Each of it's commercials end with a white ghost mascot swinging his arms and pointing them as he sings the company's jingle. A few years after the first ad with said tag aired, ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'' would have an opening credits sequence where a white ghost character who looks similar to the company's mascot does a similar dance along with other characters.
