** Nick promoted ''Nick Studio 10'' by having it '''''interrupt shows to show a random piece of footage.''''' Naturally, this led to the block getting a LOT of backlash and a swift cancellation. They also did the same to promote other shows like ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' by having a promo cut in immediately after a show's intro is finished.

This led to official complaints from over ''five and a half thousand'' viewers, it angered so many viewers (including CharlieBrooker and Creator/SimonPegg) that "Doctor Who" and "Graham Norton" actually became trending topics on Twitter because of it.

* Though technically not a pop-up, the "TV ratings" logos used on American TV appear to be getting bigger and bigger, with it now not uncommon for the icon to over as much as 1/5 or more of the screen, obscuring the scene noticeably. Fortunately, rumors at the time of their introduction that they'd be required on DVD releases as well turned out to be untrue--strangely enough, though, one TV rating bug appeared on a VHS release of the ''Series/ReadingRainbow'' episode "Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin".

** The show once had Homer eating a ''Series/JoeMillionaire'' pop-up. Similarly, another CouchGag had the Creator/{{Fox}} logo pop up on the screen, with the entire family rushing over to stomp on it (back when logo bugs were the only commercial pop ups around). The creators of ''The Simpsons'' currently have a deal with Fox, wherein they will not put up real advertisements like this on during their show.

* A variation happens on video sharing websites such as Website/YouTube where the pop-ups are usually for larger companies. Case in point: During a stream of an ''[[VideoGame/{{Amagami}} Amagami]]'' episode, an ad for UsefulNotes/McDonalds coffee showed up, resulting in [[http://i.imgur.com/VDLFv.jpg a hilarious juxtaposition]]. [[{{Squick}} It basically looked like the character was peeing out of her bathing suit]].

** Earlier than that, ''[=MST3K=]'' fans had the same demand with ComedyCentral during its run on that channel. They also managed, while the show aired on that network to stop text crawls across the bottom of the screen, ''and'' got them to stop running voice-overs during the show's credits because gags would frequently be carried over and played on top of them.

** There's another chapter in which, in middle of Stewie's wedding ceremony, one of this ads pops up.

* Ads for the Creator/{{TBS}} original comedy ''The Bill Engvall Show'' have stumbled upon a way to intrude even more: Bill Engvall himself pops up and ''pauses the show you're watching'' to talk about his show. Which basically defeats the entire purpose of using pop-ups as opposed to actual commercials, as it basically creates an incredibly short commercial break at a random moment of the show. The commercial begins with Bill Engvall ''telling you how cool it is that he can pause the show you are watching''.
