Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BobAndCarolAndTedAndAlice'': Bob and Carol visit a hippy-dippy New Age therapy retreat that is obviously supposed to be the Esalen Institute. But the producers apparently didn't want to pay the folks at Esalen, so it's only called "the Institute".

* Meanwhile, back in the regular Franchise/MarvelUniverse, the name "Mc Burger's" is used whenever someone needs to refer to a burger chain, and there is a frequently villainous oil company by the name of "Roxxon Oil". [[Comicbook/IronMan Stark Industries]] is their general replacement for Apple (so [=StarkPhone=] -> iPhone etc. and yes there is an app for everything). Franchise/MyLittlePony translates to Magical Pony Adventures (or rarely Pony Pals), [=YouTube=] to [=MeTube=], Instagram to Pictagram, Tumblr to Yamblr etc.. So does anyone want to guess what [[Wiki/TVTropes MovieTropes dot com]] is a stand-in for?

** One of the most hilarious in ''IV'' is Krapea, a brand of Swedish pre-assembled furniture... Much like IKEA.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' has the [=GameStation=]. Its spinoff, ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has the Pretty Pretty Pegasus media franchise (three guesses what it's based on).

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in ''Manga/VideoGirlAi'', when Youta tries to take Ai to the movies but she doesn't want to. He eventually ends up going alone, and the film he sees is a spoof of ''Film/{{Batman}}'' in which the titular character's bat motif refers to baseball bats rather than the animal. The subversion is in the fact that the name is written the exact same way as Batman's name is written in Japanese, making this also an IncrediblyLamePun.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' had Pego.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' had Pego.Pego; and a [[WholeEpisodeFlashback flashback episode]] shows babies Drew and Stu as fans of ''[[WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle The Blocky and Oxwinkle Show]]''.

* Some tracks in ''[[VideoGame/{{Forza}} Forza Motorsport]]'' behave this way, too. For example, Sunset Peninsula Raceway is a venue on the Florida coastline that includes a tri-oval approximately 2.5 miles in length and infield road course, similar to Daytona International Speedway. (''Forza'' is not immune, as several older NASCAR video games also lacked Daytona due to licensing issues.)

The series finally got the official Daytona track in the sixth game, along with a licensed NASCAR {{expansion pack}}.

* ''Disaster Movie'' shows screenshots of sites named "[=FaceNook=]" and "uPay". [[TheyJustDidntCare Which are then promptly referred to in dialogue as Facebook and eBay.]] Apparently the owners of those sites didn't give Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg [[ProductPlacement as much money as Apple did]].
