* A non-advertising example happens sometimes on Japanese networks whenever an earthquake is about to occur. First, a large pop-up showing a map of where the earthquake will happen is shown on screen along with text mentioning the affected areas, accompanied by the sound of chimes and a narrator saying "This is an early earthquake warning. Prepare for powerful tremors", which repeats twice. Sometimes, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_l7x_Tes9s two of those graphics will pop up at once and cover the entire screen.]] It can be a major distraction for anyone watching whatever program is currently on.

[[note]]This is because since the country uses the ISDB digital TV system, which allows sudden calamity warnings to occur as a safety feature for those near calamity-prone areas.[[/note]]



** TV Asahi also used to put news blurbs in their anime, until [[https://i.imgur.com/8xNnWXO.jpg one such incident]] [[MoodWhiplash drew a lot of complaints]]. It didn't help that their text font was a larger size than TV Tokyo's. It did return two years later, but such warnings are only shown on local stations carrying their programming, using a much smaller font. [[http://blog-imgs-63.fc2.com/k/u/r/kurema0711/DSC01127.jpg Here's an example]] from when Typhoon Halong [[note]]known as Jose in the Phillipenes [[/note]] hit one region of Japan.

* USANetwork used to have non-transparent bugs featuring ''Series/{{Monk}}'' poking at the bug itself, but they've since switched to mostly transparent USA logos and sometimes messages that a new episode of whatever show will be starting at x time.

* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "More Crap". Whenever a particularly crass moment took place, a bug reading "Emmy Winning Series" would pop up in the corner of the screen. At the end of the episode, the advertisement became a trophy given to Randy for having the biggest piece of crap in the world.

* During the 'world premiere' of the ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' [[TheMovie film]] on Adult Swim, the movie was displayed without sound in a tiny box in the corner of the screen, and episodes of ''Family Guy'' and ''Futurama'' aired while the movie ran (in its entirety) in the corner. 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).
