*''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.

* 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=]).

* The above page image is a good example. Doubly so when you consider the racial situation at the time.

* The above page image is a good example. Doubly so when you consider the racial situation at the time.[[note]]It should be known that the reason why there was a line of African-Americans was not due the Great Depression but from the Great Ohio flood of 1937. The more you know.[[/note]]

* ''ComicBook/RogueTrooper: Quartz Zone Massacre'' - The opening scene is a Nort propaganda video boasting about how much the Southers have been beaten. At the end of the scene, the camera pans out to show the TV is lying in the middle of a battlefield in which the Norts were creamed.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'' does this with holographic billboards on Earth, and uses them to detail the movie's backstory. Pixar then took it UpToEleven by giving Buy-N-Large it's own functional website, which expands on said backstory and is packed with black humor/social commentary worthy of TheOnion.
