* In ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', as there are no commercials on the show, advertising is done purely through product placement, mainly handled by the actress playing Truman's wife. It's initially played for laughs, but gets spun for drama when, during a climactic argument, she begins shilling him cocoa powder completely out of nowhere. This does ''not'' help his increasing paranoia that his life is a big lie and that she's part of it. [[AC:LiveActionTV]]

(audience cheers) -->'''Nixon:''' I'd also like to express, er, my fondness for that particular beer. (audience grumbles) * The George Burns and Gracie Allen television show would feature segments with Harry Vonzelle(?) wandering around supermarkets and discussing Carnation Evaporated Milk. * ''Series/ThirtyRock'' tends to turn ProductPlacement into this for the sake of humor. * ''Radio/{{Dragnet}}'' featured breaks with Jack Webb (the actor who played Joe Friday) advertising for Fatima Cigarettes.

* Commercials for ''TheAndyGriffithShow'' included the show characters, in character, and often within the plotline of the episode itself, [[EnforcedPlug plugging]] the sponsor's product -- and not always in ways that fit the show's continuity.
