* There was a very famous series of advertisements for home appliances that went like this.
** One has a young, attractive, fashionable couple playing around on a beach, very much in love, complete with stylized words appearing onscreen occasionally (obviously building itself up to be a clothing commercial.) They run down the beach, staring at each other as they do...[[FailedASpotCheck and the guy runs into a refrigerator.]] The camera then zooms out to reveal a group of home appliances placed on the beach as text and a voiceover cheerfully announce the ongoing sale. [[SlapstickKnowsNoGender Then the girl runs into the fridge.]]
**Another one had a Captain Morgan expy staring down a scope at a beach as his parrot flies towards it... and instead of seeing his parrot land on a beer stash, the [[RunningGag the parrot flies into a fridge.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{beatmania}}'' has the track [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiZhkLKFfyg "Salamander Beat Crush Mix"]], which sounds like an arrange of "Starfield", the ''[[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} Salamander]]'' / ''Life Force'' stage 4 theme...only to turn into a completely unrelated track.

* This is the bread-and-butter of Music/GiIvaSunner: Presenting uploads as "high quality rips" of video game tracks, only for these tracks to turn out to be mashups, remixes, or "InTheStyleOf" parodies upon listening.

* One commercial is seemingly a home appliance advert, complete with a badass, bearded, trucker-looking man dusting off his gloves as he prepares to remove a tree stump from the ground, complete with a badass rock song blaring in the background. He wraps a chain around the stump, attaches it to his pickup truck, speaks to the camera, and then gets in the truck and floors it....[[RealityEnsues and the back of the pickup comes off.]] It's a tire advertisement.

* In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50-jcQjZJ7c Irish People Try Stereotypical Irish Foods]]" a man shows us the front of a Lucky Charms cereal box. Lucky the leprechaun is levitating the marshmallow shapes in a magical rainbow beween his hands so we can see them. One of the Irish guys says "This is not what we're like." He pauses so we can assume he means "Irish people don't all have red hair and wear green clothes all the time." Then the punchline, "Only half of my family can juggle marshmallows."

* Provided the viewer knew [[LateArrivalSpoiler nothing about the film]], [[ItWasHisSled or the franchise in general]], the first part of ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' has one. Two people time-travel to 90s L.A.. One is played by Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger, i.e. the villain of [[Film/{{Terminator}} the first film]], who marches into a biker bar, and violently takes clothes from some bikers, the whole scene showing whoever this guy is, he's not human. The other, played by Creator/RobertPatrick, attacks a police officer and (apparently) takes his clothes. Up until the two meet, Patrick's character acts much more human, though something seems [[UncannyValley off about his behavior]]. Then they meet... [[TheReveal and it turns out they're both Terminators, but Arnie is the good one]].

* In {{Manga/Bakuon}}, there is the first flashback of Rin's childhood, where it seems that her father died after an accident. Then, in present day, he's very fine and mocking Rin's Katana motorcycle (and he's driving the model that her own daughter got by writing an essay when he was in the hospital!).
