* Back in TheSeventies, the food company Nestle began marketing baby formula. That wasn't so bad in and of itself, except that they were marketing the formula in very poor, rural, "third-world" countries. This led to several problems: for one thing, clean water wasn't available in these places, and many people were not educated about germ theory or proper sterilization of things like baby bottles. For another thing, the formula was ''expensive'' in these countries, leading to mothers diluting the formula to stretch their supply (decreasing its nutritional value). The result of this ill-advised marketing campaign was an increase in infant mortality (as babies died from malnutrition, as well as from waterborne diseases and parasites). ''[[FalseCause That]]'' led to conspiracy theories, a general mistrust of baby formula, and a push for mothers to breastfeed, even in places (like the US) that ''did not'' have these problems.

* Bridal magazines first started appearing during TheGreatDepression, encouraging brides (or rather, their families) to spend gobs of money on lavish weddings and {{Fairytale Wedding Dress}}es, as well as ads for household items (you know, for the bridal shower!) Given the time period, most of the readerships of these magazines would have found those kind of weddings difficult (or even impossible) to pay for, or have their parents pay for. And prior to this, most weddings were ''much'' simpler affairs, at least among middle and working-class people; only the well-to-do could afford lavish weddings. This trend continues to this day.

* ''VideoGame/EndlessSpace2'' - The United Empire faction's intro video features a cheery propaganda montage hailing the glory of the Empire, which ends in a still that pans out to reveal it's actually a billboard on the real, highly polluted, slum-covered, United Empire homeworld.
