During this, humongous pop-up ads for the movie with loud sound effects also appeared from time to time. Naturally, this 'world premiere' was on [[AprilFoolsDay]] a couple months after the theatrical release.

** Nick promoted Like the Engvall example for TBS, Nickelodeon tried the same in 2013 with their infamous ''Nick Studio 10'', a series of interstitials, by having it '''''interrupt shows to show a 10'' block, where ''Spongebob'' repeats were interrupted with random piece of footage.''''' Naturally, this led to "comedic" videos for the block getting a LOT of backlash first couple weeks and a swift cancellation.mocking voice stating that "Nick Did It!". Even though it only affected repeats seen hundreds of times before, viewers weren't happy to see a network messing with programming they paid for, and Nick quickly did away with the intrusions (and eventually the block).

** It also once did a running gag where characters would repeatedly break the Fourth Wall to complain about and kibitz the pop-ups. Plus, most of these promos are for fake shows ''named after the type of image in the pop-up'', such as "Shoving Buddies" or "Slowly Rotating Black Man".
---> '''Lois:''' "Is that a real show?"
---> '''Stewie:''' "No, it's just... no, it's, somebody's making a joke for you."

-->'''Stewie:''' You and I are like t- ''(A pop-up for [[TwentyFour 24]] appears)'' Oh, I'm sorry, is my wedding interrupting your promotion? We're right in the middle of ''our'' show! Okay, right now, you have a time slot, ''go there''! Maybe finish ''this'' candy bar before opening another one! ''(The ad disappears)'' Well, at least it wasn't one of those promos where they got the whole cast shoving each other playfully like they're all good pals. ''(A pop-up for Shovin' Buddies appears)'' Oh, oh, look! There we go! Oh, look at 'em jostling each other around! Oh, they give each other a hard time, but they're friends!

* The ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' special "Summer Belongs to You" parodies this. A fake pop-up appears declaring "You're watching television!", a sound effect is heard indicating Phineas has an idea, [[MediumAwareness Phineas complains that the "ad" is obscuring a visual gag]], and the pop-up disappears to show Ferb holding a triangle.
