Bugs Bunny's silhouette then appears in the other zero, laughs at Yosemite Sam, then said, "What a maroon.". After that, the 007 turns upside down to resemble the letters "loo" and the trailer switches to scenes from ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction''.

* An ad on TNT shows a blonde model trying on "Clear View Breathable Contact Lenses". As the announcer cheerfully talks about how "you won't even notice they're there", the model notices [[EyeScream blood coming out of her eye]]. As she screams and collapses, a parasite crawls out of her eye. The camera cuts to her lying on the bathroom floor, as a SlasherSmile crosses her face. The commercial then reveals itself to be a promo for ''FallingSkies''.

* Alka-Seltzer had one very famous ad about a meatball commercial being shot where the actor repeatedly blew his line "That's a spicy meatball!" Since he had to take a bite from those spicy meatballs on each take, he soon needed some Alka-Seltzer before he could continue.

* An anti-UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton political ad that ran during the 2016 Presidential Election in America opens with a woman standing against a blank background saying she is voting for Hillary because she is honest and trustworthy, only to call for the commercial to cut because she's an actress and doesn't know what she is saying. The commercial is actually from an independent political group targeting Hillary for her lack of truthfulness during her campaign.

* TheBurkissWay featured spoof ads as part of an 'intermission' on almost every episode. In later series a running gag developed where the spoof ads, no matter what they seemed to be parodying, would actually turn out to be for Stiffco Funeral Services.
