** Surprisingly averted in other cases: for example, Subway were apparently happy to be portrayed as an Orwellian company of {{Stepford Smiler}}s who trample on the interests of small businesses, bless 'em. The episode "Basic Rocket Science" also features use of KFC's name and corporate mascot (in a speaking, indeed threatening, role no less).

* Creator/{{Christine Love}}'s visual novels all include Amie Computers. In ''Visualnovel/{{Digital A Love Story}}'', they're a transparent standing for Amiga. Amie appears to be rather successful, since by the time of ''Visualnovel/{{dont take it personally babe| it just aint your story}}'', they not only produce tablet computers a la Apple, they also run a popular social networking site called [=AmieConnect=], which is a clear standin for Website/{{Facebook}}; that game also gives us 12channel, which Love doesn't even pretend isn't Website/{{Fourchan}}. Amie is still around in the fifth millennium for ''Visualnovel/{{Analogue A Gate Story}}'', which also introduced [=keOS=] as a Unix standin.
