These ads are typically not for products, but for the network's programming. Often, they advertise what show is on next or later that day on the same channel. Sometimes, it can be a commercial popup indicating [[ViewersAreMorons what show you are watching and what network you are watching it on]]. Occasionally the network will even go so far as to slap a big "NEW EPISODE" graphic in the corner of the screen for the duration of that episode's first broadcast ([[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-vrwdfggZJcE/UsiB_OnHLxI/AAAAAAAAMHY/EIauBqS4dYY/s1600/Capture.PNG example]]). The stations justify this because some people [=DVR=] and record shows--this is also how the networks can remind people who are watching a pirated program where the program originated from, and ensure pirates at least buy the DVD to pirate from.

* A VH-1 advertisement for some show called ''Scream Queens''. The ad manifests itself as a high-pitched scream during an otherwise quiet moment in a show.

has nothing to do with this trope. Not apt

* A gag one happens with the network logo version on ''WesternAnimation/Chowder''. Chowder scribbles on the screen and gets yelled at. After it's cleaned up he points over at the Cartoon Network logo and asks "What about that one?" to which Gaspatcho responds, "That one doesn't come off. I've tried." The channel icon is part of the episode, making it obvious that the logo has changed since the episode's initial airing.

** 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. They also did the same to promote other shows like ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' by having a promo cut in after a show's intro is finished.

* A rare Literature example is the German publisher Heyne, which included a soup advert in the middle of the text of Terry Pratchett's ''Discworld/{{Pyramids}}'' (see [[http://web.archive.org/web/20120127063335/http://gmkeros.wordpress.com/2011/09/02/terry-pratchett-and-the-maggi-soup-adverts/ here]] for details).

* Similar to the ''Rugrats'' example, Family in Canada had one around 2004 for a back to school-themed contest where a "BTS" bug would appear at a random point in the show. YTV did the same about a year earlier but with a different colored Fruit Loop rolling by (the contest was sponsored by Kelloggs).
