* While watching TV, the ads during the commercial breaks may contrast the show you're actually watching. Heck, some commercial breaks may run ads that contrast ''each other'' (like, say, if a fast food commercial was followed by an anti-drug [=PSA=]).

* ''Film/{{Brazil}}'': Advertisements for things like secure cruise lines ("A panic-free atmosphere!") and things to buy are all over the place, plus standard "anti-espionage" posters ("loose lips sink ships") on the offices. All of which are more than literal window dressing to try to cover the colossally screwed-up, barely-functioning world the characters live in (one scene shows a road with an endless line of billboards on each side, which prevent anybody on the vehicles from seeing an endless arid wasteland lying beyond).

* Website/{{Tumblr}} once ran ads for Autism Speaks, an organization that belittles autistic people and believes autism to be an "epidemic"... This despite the fact that many people on Tumblr are autistic and absolutely ''despise'' Autism Speaks. It was most likely because not everyone knows how horrible Autism Speaks actually is, but you'd think that Tumblr would know better, considering how many autistic people talk about how bad the organization is.
